After tearing his Achilles tendon earlier this offseason, the San Francisco 49ers are expected to place wide receiver Michael Crabtree on injured reserve with a designated return, according to Matt Barrows of CSNBayArea.com.
Crabtree sustained a torn Achilles tendon during a May 21 workout. He will be placed on injured reserve with a designated return. Crabtree might miss the first 10 to 12 regular season games. The 49ers expect him to be back in action before the end of the year, but nobody knows how effective he can be upon his return.
There isn’t a guarantee that Crabtree will play at all this seaosn. The 49ers are holding out hope that he’ll be able to contribute later in the year.
Even though Crabtree is the 49ers best receiver, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis shouldn’t have a problem picking up the slack that he left behind.
