Michael Crabtree Injury Update: Receiver Tweets He Is Ready To Workout

Credit: Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.

    I have mixed feelings. The first feeling is for Crabtrees full and total recovery in as short of time as possible.

    I also am hoping that the 49ers offense is not slowed down at all and that Crabtrees absence will not be missed. That all the young WR’s step up and play to a level of excellence that it makes it difficult to decide which player will start the games.

    Crabtree being competitive wants to play as soon as possible.The best thing to do would be to not rush the process and come back at 100% fully recovered and ready to roll.If Lattimore has rehabbed by then also it would be crazy if they both came back at the same time and saved the day.Hopefully the 49ers will be battling through the playoffs and there return would be amazing timing.
