Back in early June, it was reported San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree had his stitches removed from surgery on his torn right Achilles tendon. Having his stitches removed was Crabtree’s first step on the road back to fully recovering from his injury.
This past weekend Crabtree tweeted another update, this time saying he was ready to work out. It was a simple tweet, but it was welcome news for Niner fans to hear that Crabtree is working out again.
Start back working out 2moro.. I’m ready..

The earliest we will see Crabtree back on the field is in December as it will take at least six months for him to fully recover. The recovery time could last longer, but the hope is he will be able to play the final couple of games of the regular season. Having Crabtree get some playing time in before the start of the playoffs will give the offense an opportunity to work him back into the game plan.
