But also it was one of those issues in the game where they put me down, wanted me to get an MRI and thought I’d done some damage to it. But all the results came back pretty positive. “The week’s been going well. We’ll see how it responds day to day, but yesterday was a good day. I was out there on the practice field, did some individuals stuff, and hopefully I’ll do more stuff today.”

-- Michael Crabtree Ready to Play This Week --
Fri Nov 29, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

The Contra Costa Times reports 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles) practiced fully for three consecutive days this week and was not listed on the 49ers’ injury report. Crabtree will return to action Sunday at Candlestick Park against the St. Louis Rams for his first time since sustaining a torn right Achilles tendon in May. “Looks that way,” 49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said on Friday. And it looks that way because of how Crabtree has looked in practices. When asked if he sees the same old WR Michael Crabtree while watching practice video, Crabtree answered, “Yeah, for the most part, it did. That’s probably what made me feel comfortable -- just practicing every day and really feeling the ground with my foot.” Crabtree declared himself ready to make his season debut after taking part in four weeks of practices since Nov. 5. The 49ers officially activated him to the 53-man roster on Tuesday off the physically-unable-to-perform list. “I’m ready to play,” Crabtree said. “It’s been a long time coming.”

-- 49ers Thursday Injury Update - Manningham Limited; Gore Limited --
Thu Nov 28, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports the San Francisco 49ers' injury report looked better Thursday than it did Wednesday.

Crabtree, who tore his Achilles in May, will be eased back into action as he makes his season debut. Rookie WR Quinton Patton continued to be limited Thursday as he recovers from a broken foot he suffered in Week 4. He returned to practice Wednesday. RB Frank Gore (ankle) was limited in practice.

-- Michael Crabtree Seems Unlikely to Play for a While --
Thu Nov 21, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNBayArea.com reports WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles - PUP) will be added to the 49ers’ 53-man roster within the next six days. It’s even possible Crabtree could be on the roster prior to the 49ers’ game Monday night at Washington, but that does not mean he will suit up for the game. Based on his participation last week in practices, it does not appear likely Crabtree will be available for the 49ers’ next game. After one week of practices leading up to the 49ers’ game against the Carolina Panthers, the organization decided to back off on Crabtree’s participation a week ago. The team wanted a more controlled environment in which Crabtree could continue to rehabilitate from surgery to repair the torn right Achilles tendon he sustained six months ago. So it seems unlikely the 49ers would rush him back onto the chaos of an NFL game just a week later.

-- Michael Crabtree Unlikely to Play This Week --
Fri Nov 15, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNBayArea.com reports 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles - PUP) did not take part in team workouts this week, but Harbaugh said he ran pass routes, caught passes, performed sprints, pushed a blocking sled and lifted weights. Harbaugh said it was partly the team’s plan for Crabtree’s rehabilitation from Achilles surgery and partly a tweak to his scheduled based on how he fared in the first week of practice. Crabtree returned to practice last week but remains on the reserve/physically-unable-to-perform list. The 49ers have one open roster spot and it’s apparent Crabtree will not be available to play Sunday against the Saints. The 49ers could choose not to fill the 53rd roster spot for this weekend or they could promote TE Derek Carrier to the roster.

-- Vernon Davis & Eric Reid on Pace to Play This Week --
Fri Nov 15, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNBayArea.com reports 49ers TE Vernon Davis (concussion) and S Eric Reid (concussion) squared off in a contract drill after practice Friday as the final protocol for them to return to action after being diagnosed with concussions five days ago. When asked if both starters are on pace to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, 49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said, “It seems so.” Both players must remain symptom-free to receive final clearance to play. “It all depends on how I feel the next two days,” Davis said. “Up to this point, I’ve been fine. No complaints or worries.” The brief contact drill involved Davis and Reid engaging with each other as if Davis were run-blocking. Moments earlier, DB Darryl Morris went up against Davis. “He was pretty physical,” Davis said of Reid. “Eric is a pretty physical guy. We were just making contact, and that’s pretty much it.”

-- Vernon Davis Limited Friday; Crabtree Practices --
Fri Nov 15, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNBayArea.com reports 49ers TE Vernon Davis (concussion) and S Eric Reid (concussion) remained limited at the 49ers' final practice with non-contact blue jerseys on before leaving Friday to face the New Orleans Saints.

Davis and Reid were removed from the 49ers' game Sunday against the Carolina Panthers due to concussions. WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles - PUP), who remains on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, returned to practice after missing workouts Wednesday and Thursday. Crabtree is returning from surgery in May to repair a torn Achilles tendon.

TE Vernon Davis practiced in a non-contact jersey for a second straight day because of his Sunday concussion, but he is expecting to play this week.

-- No Setback for Michael Crabtree, But Unlikely to Play This Week --
Thu Nov 14, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

The Sacramento Bee reports 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles - PUP) did not practice with the 49ers on Wednesday, but he has not had a setback in his return from an Achilles' tendon tear. Instead recovery days - as you would expect for someone who hadn't practiced in six months - are built into Crabtree's routine. Last week, Crabtree went through his first practice since May. 22 surgery. He is in the middle of a three-week window in which he can practice with teammates, but does not count against the 53-man roster. After those three weeks are up, the 49ers either can place him on the 53-man squad or shut him down for good this season. The 49ers expect him to play. But he is being eased back into the mix and it seems very unlikely that he will play Sunday against the Saints. Last year two 49ers players - RB Kendall Hunter (Achilles) and WR Kyle Williams (ACL) - suffered season-ending injuries on New Orleans' artificial field.

-- Michael Crabtree Watch --
Wed Nov 13, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNBayArea.com reports when asked if 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles - PUP) could be added to the 53-man roster for Sunday’s game, 49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said, “We’ll see. I’m not going to make any predictions today on who that is, but we’ve been encouraged with his progress and there’s other options as well.” Crabtree, who is on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, was not spotted on the practice field Wednesday. Because he is not on the 53-man roster, his activity is not included on the 49ers’ injury report. Crabtree was cleared to begin practicing last week, six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles.

-- Kaepernick Leaning Heavily on Vernon Davis --
Wed Nov 13, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports the disparity of good play and bad play has been consistent throughout San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick’s brief NFL tenure. His career QB-rating with TE Vernon Davis (concussion) is 77.7; without him it’s 16.1. His completion percentage with Davis is 62.4; without him it drops to 47.1. Davis has caught 78 percent of Kaepernick’s touchdown passes this season. That is the highest percentage by one player in the NFL by a margin of 21 percent. For those wondering about Kaepernick's and the offense's woes, this is a clear message – the 49ers are a much better offense when Davis is healthy.

-- 49ers Tuesday Injury Update - Vernon Davis Feeling Fine --
Tue Nov 12, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

The Mercury News reports 49ers TE Vernon Davis (concussion) and S Eric Reid (concussion) both said they’re feeling fine after concussions knocked each of them from the 49ers’ loss Sunday. Both plan to follow normal, post-concussion protocol this week before being fully cleared to return to action. “I’m doing fine, feeling great and just taking it one day at a time,” Davis said Tuesday. “I have to wait for doctors to let me know what I can do next.” Reid, in a brief interview, simply said he’s “doing good” and will follow the same steps he took after a Sept. 15 concussion in Seattle. The 49ers (6-3) next play against the New Orleans Saints (7-2) on Sunday in the Superdome. Davis described this concussion as “mild” as compared to one that knocked him out of a game last Dec. 23 in Seattle. He said he and Reid were in the locker room together as the 49ers finished out their 10-9 loss Sunday to the Carolina Panthers. “I didn’t really have too many symptoms,” Davis said. “My memory was good. My balance was OK.” Davis left the game after landing on his head and shoulder, as S Mike Mitchell helped break up a QB Colin Kaepernick to Davis pass near the Panthers’ 5-yard line. Davis’ goal Tuesday was to “break a sweat,” and he did that by riding an exercise bike and lifting weights. Once they past neurological tests, Davis and Reid will need to clear a light-contact session. TE Garrett Celek said he’s day-to-day after straining his left hamstring while blocking on an opening punt return. “I have high expectations,” Celek said in terms of his hopeful availability Sunday, though he noted that doctors don’t know the extent of his strain other than it’s not a torn hamstring. LB Dan Skuta wore an orthopedic boot on his left foot after playing through an injury most of Sunday’s game.

-- Manningham Likely to Play This Week; Crabtree Very Cautious --
Wed Nov 6, 2013 --from FFMastermind.com

The Sacramento Bee reports 49ers WR Mario Manningham (torn ACL), who is coming back from two torn knee ligaments suffered Dec. 23, is farther along than WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles) and is likely to play in some capacity Sunday against the Panthers. He was not listed on Wednesday's injury report and practiced in full. "The knee I had surgery on is better than the other one," he said after practice. "So I'm not thinking about that when I'm out there." His confidence is back, and the goal now is reestablishing a connection with QB Colin Kaepernick. The quarterback said that shouldn't be difficult. "He's a receiver that's easy to throw to," Kaepernick said. "So it's not going to take much time for him to get back up to speed." Crabtree tore his right Achilles' tendon on May 21. He wore a blue, non-contact jersey in practice and acknowledged he was easing his way back into his first practice. He didn't run routes at full speed and was noticeably cautious about leaping - and landing - for high passes. Asked if running routes in practice was like riding a bike, Crabtree gave a description similar to Manningham's "I wouldn't say 'riding a bike,'" he said. "It's a roller coaster being away from the game for so long. I'm just happy to be out there." Wednesday marked just 24 weeks since Crabtree's surgery to repair his Achilles'. Asked if he was surprised to see someone on the field so soon after such a serious injury, HC Jim Harbaugh said, no. After all, he's been watching Crabtree fight to get back on the field for half a year. "I guess because you watch him day-to-day -- successful surgery, on track at every point, doing everything that he was asked to do by the doctors and all reports were really good," Harbaugh said.
