Michael Crabtree Never to be Endorsed by Dr. Scholls

Matt Barrows just reported that WR Michael Crabtree may miss 4-6 weeks due to his foot.

The foot injury that kept Michael Crabtree out of player-run practices in June is more serious than previously believed, and the 49ers’ top wideout could miss four to six weeks of training camp and the preseason, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

That’s why the 49ers were in the running for veteran wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, who was traded from Cincinnati to New England earlier today. The 49ers will continue to pursue a veteran receiver on the free-agent market who could perhaps start opposite Josh Morgan when the season begins.

The exact nature of the injury is not known and the 49ers did not return calls Thursday night. Crabtree, who had surgery to correct a stress fracture in his left foot early in 2009, reinjured that foot on June 6, the first day of a player-run minicamp. At the time, Morgan said that Crabtree was sore from wearing new cleats on San Jose State’s artificial surface playing field.

    What a Pansy. Dude hasn't proved anything except that he's a drama queen and he thinks he can miss training camp each year. What a dousche!

    On a side note…
    Glad to see the front office for the 49ers want to win now by cutting our starting corner (although he would be making more than he's worth), losing our starting center, probably losing our NT, losing a good LB in Spikes…but don't worry, they balanced that out by signing a kicker (although Ackers is good, he's not that big of a difference over Nedney). Wow. It pretty much is a forgone conclusion that they are out of the running for the top CB on the market. Let's face it…as long as ANY York has a say so of this team we're never going anywhere. All-in-all though I would still gladly go through the pain of watching another 49ers losing season than not watch them at all.
