49ers WR Michael Crabtree 'working through something,' could miss 1-2 weeks

San Francisco 49ers - [Full Article]

49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said WR Michael Crabtree is "working through something," could be back on practice field in a week or two.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports Harbaugh did say that the injury Crabtree is working through wasn’t to his foot or Achilles.

Fantasy Impact: 

Including three playoff games, Crabtree appeared in eight contests last season and averaged 4.3 catches for 61 yards and 0.13 TD. For a better indication of his potential for 2014, we should include the 10 games he played with Colin Kaepernick in 2012 (and in the 2013 playoffs). When those numbers are rolled in, Crabtree averaged 5.3 catches for 76 yards and 0.50 TD, which equates to 10.6 PPG, or strong WR2-type numbers. He looked liked himself during the 49ers' playoff run, so we're expecting a productive 2014 from the 6th-year receiver, provided this injury doesn't linger too long.
