49ers WR Michael Crabtree, recovering from a torn Achilles, has made continued progress from the injury he suffered at Organized Team Activities in May.
“He’s working hard,” OC Greg Roman said of the sure-handed receiver who is currently on the team’s Physically Unable to Perform List and could be activated later in the regular season.
Although Crabtree rehabs at the 49ers facility daily, attends games and meetings, Roman wasn’t sure about the timetable of the wide receiver’s return.
“I don’t think there’s any specific day or date,” said Roman, who stressed the decision will be made by the team’s medical staff.
Roman added that the way Crabtree's been working, he wouldn't be shocked to see him come back at some point this season, but also said he'd consider that "gravy," meaning there is still a chance he doesn't play. He's a while off from being fantasy worthy and stashing him on a roster at this point doesn't seem worth it until we have a better idea of when. Roster sports are way too valuable at this point.
