49ers WR Michael Crabtree will return to practice soon

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree @KingCrab15 hasn't been to practice at all this week due to a lower leg injury. The team has been quiet about specifics since they are not required to disclose as much information at this time of the year. Head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters that his injury "wasn't serious" and anticipates he'll return soon. Crabtree was seen running sprints near the practice field as part of his rehabilitation.

Fantasy Analysis:

Crabtree is now infamous for having missed so much training camp not only this season, but in his entire NFL career. Whether it was injuries or holding out as a rookie, Crabtree has preferred to go about things his own way. The wide receiver crew in San Francisco has a lot of interesting talent, there's just no way of knowing how it will all play out. For what it's worth, Crabtree did have a career-year last season, but with the addition of Randy Moss @DaRealOtisMoss and Mario Manningham @Manningham49ers, it is unlikely any of them emerge as a reliable fantasy threat.

FFB, Send Michael Crabtree to the New Jersey Generals for a future pick. He has been a clog in the works since he was picked. He doesn't deserve to wear a Forty Niner uniform! JJ
