Michael Crabtree Tears Achilles, Should be Back in Perfect Time
Since losing the Super Bowl, everything has been going the San Francisco 49ers‘ way but then tragedy struck when Michael Crabtree tore his Achilles tendon during OTAs. This specific injury is typically season-ending, but Crabtree and the 49ers team doctors aren’t thinking that way.
The 49ers acquired Anquan Boldin in a trade this offseason, so they’re not panicking about their receiving corps, but this was supposed to be Crabtree’s breakout season and now he’s out. However, he’s already had surgery and expects to play this year after Terrell Suggs and Da’Quan Bowers each came back from the injury to play in 2012 after suffering it early in the season. Since the start of the season is still over three months away, Crabtree should be fine.
49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Crabtree immediately asked how the surgery went after he woke up from it. The doctor said it was “a success” and that Crabtree won’t miss the entire season.
San Francisco should make the playoffs without him, so if Crabtree can return 100% healthy for the postseason, that might work out perfectly. He won’t be topping his career-high numbers from last year on the sideline, but if Crabtree is on the field when his team needs him the most, the 49ers should still be considered favorites to win the Super Bowl this year.
