I hope bigMike keeps him out a month to allow him to become accustomed to nfl speed, get in practice hits, cuts, turns, catches, etc. Worst thing that could come from playing early would be a high ankle sprain, a knee, or some other season ender. We've waited this long, let's get him game ready, or rather physically ready for the nfl.
The other thing, is how his team mates are gonna respond to him. My guess is that they want to see him produce on the practice field also. But my main concern remains that injury that washes out the rest of his season. Give him a month to get ready physically.
Didn't Sing pretty much say he won't play until the Houston game? Let's face it though, other than a few packages he won't be a huge asset until at least December if at all this year. Yes he could make a few nice plays but he could also run a few wrong routes costing us a few pick 6's. It's funny that I've hated him this whole time & now since he signed I'm finding myself defending him and getting mad at the media for making jokes about him....All that matters is that he's family now...
Sing already said in press conf today that Crabtree would be playing in small doses the first game following the bye Vs the Texans seems like that would make this thread completely unnecessary just like half of the other Crabtree threads created today

Smokescreen. In reality, Crabtree is going to start and score 2 TDs for us.
