Mario Manningham still lacking confidence in knee


Wide receiver Mario Manningham tore his ACL late in the 2012 season with the 49ers and finished last season on injured reserve because of continued knee troubles that still haven’t resolved themselves.

Manningham returned to the Giants this offseason as a free agent and said Monday that he’s not feeling as confident in the condition of his knee as he’d like to feel. He had the knee scoped in January and is “just trying to get back to where I was” while testing it out during camp.

“I know my knee [is] fixed,” Manningham said, via the New York Daily News. “It’s just confidence. It’s just me sticking the foot in the ground and going. So that’s like I say: every day it gets better and better.”

With Odell Beckham struggling to get past a hamstring injury, the Giants are short on healthy depth behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle right now. Should both injury issues linger deeper into the summer, the Giants may need to think about looking at outside options to provide them with a bit more certainty in the receiving corps as they try to form a group that will help Eli Manning complete 70 percent of his passes.

    If Mario Manningham lacks confidence in his knee, then we lack confidence in Mario Manningham.

    Mario’s a great Giant, here’s hoping he can hang on and help out.

    I remember when I saw that injury live and thought immediately that he’d never play again. It’s not looking too good. Poor guy.

    If Mario doesn’t get injured he has Two rings instead of One.

    Giants will be really thin at wide receiver if Manningham and Beckham don’t show they’re healthy.

    Injures suck, and overcoming that mental hurdle is another battle. Wish him the best.
