Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree left the field in the second quarter with a foot injury, but has returned.
Insight: Crabtree's left foot has caused him trouble over the years. It's probably the reason the team picked up Stevie Johnson in the offseason.

Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree has left the field in the second quarter with a foot injury.
Insight: Crabtree's left foot has caused him trouble over the years. he has just one catch for two yards. His return is questionable.
 
9/22/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree continued to be quarterback Colin Kaepernick's favorite target, catching 10 of 11 throws for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Cardinals.
Insight: Crabtree has been targeted 20 times over two games and scored in each. He's a solid WR2 and if Vernon Davis is still sidelined next weekend can be a WR1.
 
9/16/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree finished the game with the Bears as the 49ers' top receiver in both targets and yards.
Insight: Crabtree caught 7-of-9 targets for 82 yards and a touchdown. He's always been a Colin Kaepernick favorite. His problem is staying healthy. If Vernon Davis (ankle) is sidelined for any length of time, Crabtree's numbers would likely rise.
 
9/12/2014 2:35:00 PM
Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree (calf) has practiced all week and should be ready to improve on a weak first weekend.
Insight: He caught just two balls for 25 yards, but the 49ers owned a big lead and didn't throw much. Facing the Bears, and being healthier, should allow him a muich better performance.
 
9/7/2014 3:22:00 PM
Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree (calf) is active for Week 1 against the Cowboys.
Insight: How long he will play or how effective he is will be another story. Owners are certainly pleased he will play and against a weak Dallas defense, we all hope he is not limited in any way.
 
9/4/2014 4:23:00 PM
Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he is "good to go" against the Cowboys on Sunday according to Cam Inman of Bay Area News.
Insight: Crabtree (calf) missed Wednesday's practice, but that appears to have been just precautionary. Crabtree is quarterback Colin Kaepernick's No. 1 target this season and is a solid WR1 in 12 team leagues this Sunday against Dallas' poor defense.
 
9/4/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree did not practice on Wednesday due to a calf injury and his status for Week 1 against Dallas is unknown according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.
Insight: This is the second leg injury Crabtree has endured since the beginning of training camp, when he suffered a hamstring strain. Crabtree is poised to have a huge season after missing most of last year with an Achillies' tear. Hopefully he returns quickly, so owners can feel a little more at ease.
 
8/13/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree returned to practice Wednesday, according to Steve Corkran of the Bay Area News Group.
Insight: Crabtree missed roughly 10 days with hamstring soreness. The receiver is primed for a breakout after a torn Achilles ruined his 2013 season. He has low-end WR1 upside but is being selected in the fourth round of mock drafts.
 
8/1/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree could miss up to two weeks with a hamstring injury, according to Josina Anderson.
Insight: Crabtree should still be ready for the regular season and the missed time won't hurt much. He'll be the No. 1 receiver for the 49ers.
 
1/16/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Michael Crabtree's wrist has landed him on the injury report, though he is expected to be ready for Sunday's NFC Championship against Seattle, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

Insight: Crabtree owns the Packers. In five career games against them, he's averaged 88.4 ypg. Next week, the Niners are headed to Carolina for a date with the Panthers. Crabtree corralled four passes for 31 yards when he faced them back in 2010.

Description: San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree ended up playing more snaps than anyone expected - 42 of 67 plays.
Insight: Crabtree missed the Niners' first 11 games while rehabbing a torn Achilles tendon. He caught two of four targets for 68 yards. If the 49ers continue to increase Crabtree's snap count over the next games, Crabtree could be a viable fantasy playoff option.
 
12/1/2013 7:39:00 PM
Description: San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree had two catches for 68 yards on four targets in his season debut Sunday against St. Louis.
Insight: Crabtree missed the Niners' first 11 games while rehabbing a torn Achilles tendon. His day would have been quiet had he not hauled in a 60-yard bomb. The 49ers likely will continue to increase Crabtree's snap count over the final four games.

Description: It's official. San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree will make his season debut Sunday against the Rams. SOURCE: Matt Maiocco, Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area
Insight: Crabtree missed the Niners' first 11 games while rehabbing a torn Achilles tendon. Similar to Percy Harvin two weeks ago in Seattle, he's likely to be on a snap count. This week we have him at No. 49 in our TSN wide receiver rankings.
 
11/26/2013 11:02:00 AM
Description: Niners wideout Michael Crabtree (Achilles) is expected to be activated from the PUP list Tuesday and play against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Insight: Crabtree has been practicing for several weeks and could be a flex option against the Rams' 22nd-ranked pass defense in Week 13. He'll likely ramp up his workload over the next few weeks and could be a major factor by Weeks 15 and 16.
 
11/25/2013 5:47:00 PM
Description: Though Niners wideout Michael Crabtree (Achilles) won't play on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter expects he'll return next week against St. Louis.
Insight: Crabtree still hasn't been activated from the PUP list though that could change in the next 24 hours. He's been practicing for several weeks and could be a flex option against the Rams' 22nd-ranked pass defense in Week 13.
 
11/25/2013 9:36:00 AM
Description: San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree, still on the PUP list, should be activated by the Tuesday deadline, but obviously won't play in Week 12 and is questionable for Week 13.
Insight: Crabtree's torn Achilles seems to be healing well, but that doesn't mean he'll play the moment he's moved to the active list.
 
11/16/2013 10:12:00 AM
Description: San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh finally acknowledged Saturday that injured 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree is unlikely to play this week against New Orleans. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: Crabtree's torn Achilles seems to be healing nicely but coming back in Week 11 was always a bit of a stretch. A return next week versus Washington or the week after against St. Louis would be far more realistic.
