This week it was reported 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree had his stitches removed from his surgery back on May 22. Crabtree tore his right Achilles tendon while running a route at the 49ers first day of OTAs.
Having the stitches removed is the first step in Crabtree’s recovery to get back onto the field. The receiver will miss at least six months rehabbing the injury and there is a possibility he could come before the end of the regular season. Crabtree is expected to start rehabbing his Achilles right after his wounds from his surgery are healed.
With advancement of technology used in surgeries and Crabtree being young, there is a high probability he will return sometime in December. Everyone, from Jim Harbaugh to his players to Niner fans everywhere, are hoping for a speedy and full recovery.
