Mike Garafolo of the USA Today is reporting that Michael Crabtree has torn his achilles and will soon undergo surgery which could cause him to miss the entire 2013 season.
Crabtree suffered the tear during Tuesday’s OTA’s. Crabtree was poised to have a breakout season this year after he and quarterback Colin Kaepernick established great chemistry.
At this time we do not know if it is a complete or partial tear. If it were a partial tear there is a chance Crabtree could be back sometime this season.
With the possible loss of Crabtree the 49ers will have to look to young receivers AJ Jenkins and Quinton Patton to fill the void.
