Breaking: A foot injury could knock Michael Crabtree out of the preseason lineup for a third straight year. #49ers ... tinyurl.com/3kl47xe
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.
Seriously, I know I'm a mod, but a 49ers fan first and hate to say this but, lets just trade his ass already. It seems like this guy just doesn't want to be here, blah blah blah hes shy "excuse", Gore is too, but at least hes straight up with the fans and media.
All speculation on my behalf, but still his track record is fishy.
