49ers training camp: Mario Manningham, Kendall Hunter, Kyle Williams placed on PUP
When the San Francisco 49ers open training camp next week, eight players won't be on the practice field. The team has placed running back Kendall Hunter, wide receivers Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams, and linebacker Darius Fleming on the active/PUP list, according to ESPN's Mike Sando.
Under the NFL rules, players on the active/PUP list are unable to practice until they are cleared by medical staff. Manningham and Williams are both recovering from ACL tears, while Hunter is rehabbing a torn Achilles. All three players should be ready for the regular season and aren't expected to miss much training camp time.
All eight players will count against the 90 man roster in training camp. One notable name missing from these lists is receiver Michael Crabtree, who tore his Achilles in OTAs. Sando believes that he will be a candidate for Injury Reserve with a designation to play. Crabtree hopes to come back sometime late in the season.
