Crabtree has a foot injury...

Raider fans are telling me that this is why Al Davis passed on Crabs is because of his fragile feet. I'm starting to believe them!

Al passed on him because DHB was the fastest 40 at the combine. He's not enough of a forward thinker to evaluate talent that might benefit his team in the future.

Either way, DHB is starting to look more promising...while Crabs is off to a bad start.
Move him to IR and rehab him all season, no point in wasting practice time and a roster spot on an injured player, has to be some body on waivers right now. Besides Braylon, Josh, and Teddy will do fine, we can win with out him, better to have him 100% healthy for the rest of his career, than banged up all the time!
Crabtree on crutches is still better than DHB.

I don't think he needs to go to IR and take all season, but it may take another 3-5 weeks for this bone to heal fully.

I was concerned when I heard he went from a walking boot to running full speed in less than two weeks. That is not the typical pattern required for this kind of injury to the foot. 4 weeks would be a more realistic time frame. His foot had been immobile and certainly lost some tone and strength, thus putting even more pressure on the skeletal structure.

Shut him down for at least 10 days and re-visit it. We do need him but not at the jeopardy of re-injury.
I was one of Crabtree's biggest supporters from draft day up until a few weeks ago.

I don't question his heart or work ethic like others (although I do feel he'd rather be playing for another team).

The question is this foot injury. It seems like this thing will never heal and will be the death of his career.

Crabtree on crutches and with two club casts is still better than DHB.

I'm no Dr, but i think it is just pain from being inactive for so long. Kind of like when you work out for the first time after a month or so off.

I know IR sounds drastic, but Crabtree is young, and hope to see him at top productivity for years, I'm no Dr. either, but rest it, let it heal. I just get the feeling Dingle Berry and company, rushed him back in an effort to save their own hides, and have just made things worse. These guys are pure bad asses, and will play with massive pain, but that is not always best for the team in the long run.

Yeah, I second that. Until Crabs is 100% healthy he isn't an upgrade over Ginn or Morgan. Two weeks of easing back into it should do it.

I'm just really hoping he doesn't hurt it in practice or something. Hopefully the trainers can figure out a way to manage this to where he can get this fully healed and still play soon. Hopefully he's still OK by the bye week and then that will give him enough extra rest to be okay for the rest of the year.

Not if Monday night is an indication, DHB looked very good.
