    Niners LB Manny Lawson out for season with torn knee ligament

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Linebacker Manny Lawson will miss the rest of the San Francisco 49ers' season after tearing a ligament in his left knee.

    Lawson, a starting outside linebacker in the 49ers' 3-4 defensive scheme, went down with the injury during Wednesday's practice. The injury didn't initially appear to be serious, and Lawson rode on a stationary bike for the rest of the team's workout.

    But tests determined Thursday that Lawson tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

      Thats a shame. I liked Lawson alot coming out of college, I actually was hoping the Steelers would find a way to draft him. He looked very good in the first two games this year and has shown huge improvements over last season. Hopefully he'll be able to recover from this and come back next year fully healthy.

        That really sucks I wanted to see if he could build off of his rookie season.

          Thats not good, he's one of my favorite players in the NFC just based off of talent. I hope he recovers quickly.

            A force on that defense that teams no longer have to gameplan for

              unfortunate no doubt. Brandon Moore can stil play outside 'backer, so that should minimize the loss. Hurts his development thats the main loss.

                Damn, i was pumping Manny big time when he was coming out. His potential is limitless and he has good head on his shoulders. I actually would have preffered the Browns to take Manny over Wimbley...glad i was wrong (so far anyway, Manny has more potential with a bum knee then most NFL prospects can dream about, i think he can still be a force).

                  only a 77 overall, but is FUN to play with in madden. 90 speed for a linebacker.

                    kinda sad cuz i really liked him comin out of NC state with mario williams and mccargo but to this point i believe hes been a bit of a disappointment mostly due to the fact hes a tweener and is out of position. if the 49ers played a 4-3 defense he could have been used similarily to elvis dumervil of the broncos the past couple of years.

                        I feel like he been used wrong, they are trying to use him like Shawn Merriman when they should really use him like Demarcus Ware a passer rusher only. They also need him to add some more muscle, he way to fast for a LBer so it wont hurt.

                          He's not strong enough yet to be a Merriman type, they should just use him either in coverage or as a passrusher, he's just not very good in run-support

                            you can never be too fast for any position in football.

                              Wrong. His run-support has actually become a strength of his. His improvements this year have been HUGE. He's definitely stronger and more explosive off the snap. They usually did't use him as a pass rusher though, as that role is mostly Banta-Cain, and Manny is the only LB on the team who can cover anybody. This really really really blows, he was going to have a big, big year. He was already way farther along than Julian Peterson was at this point.
