49ers' Quinton Patton broke bone in his foot

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Quinton Patton broke a metatarsal bone in his foot against the St. Louis Rams, coach Jim Harbaugh announced.

He won't be placed on injured reserve, though.

The 49ers have already utilized an injured reserve-designated to return spot on linebacker Nick Moody.

Patton is a fourth-round draft pick who got hurt on his first NFL reception.
