SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — At last, Mario Manningham is back in game-week mode.

And that has a far better ring to it than rehab mode given he has spent much of the last year nursing himself back to health following major knee surgery.

Manningham walked through the locker room Wednesday, binder in hand and headed for meetings with the expectation that he will play for the 49ers in Sunday’s game against Carolina, even if coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to formally tell him.

Manningham is on the active roster again nearly 11 months after a knee injury derailed his season and forced him to the sidelines for the Super Bowl. Michael Crabtree is back on the practice field six months after he suffered a torn right Achilles tendon that also sent him to surgery.
