49ers Promote DT Jerod-Eddie; Place WR Mario Manningham On IR
With their depth along the defensive front depleted because of a wave of recent injuries, the 49ers promoted rookie tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie from the practice squad to fill the roster spot of wide receiver Mario Manningham, who was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.
An undrafted free agent, Jerod-Eddie (6-5, 301) was signed by the 49ers on May 7 and has spent the season on the practice squad. He made 38 starts at Texas A&M and was a second-team All-Big 12 selection as a senior.
Jerod-Eddie got the call with defensive tackle Justin Smith sidelined indefinitely with a partial triceps tear and reserve tackle Demarcus Dobbs on injured reserve with a knee injury. In addition, tackle Will Tukaufu (neck) did not finish last week’s loss in Seattle and has been limited in practice the past two days.
