49ers will activate WR Michael Crabtree off PUP today and he is expected to play Sunday.
This was the sense all along after Crabtree wasn't activated for Monday Night Football against the Redskins. Crabtree will be a bit of a risk to play in Week 13 against the Rams, just based on the possibility of a limited snap count coming off a torn Achilles injury. But if all goes well, snaps should increase going forward. Keep in mind the 9ers play the Seahawks (12th against WRs) Week 14. But, that's followed by much better matchups with the Bucs and Falcons in Weeks 15 and 16. This is also good news for QB Colin Kaepernick as he now has a full arsenal of weapons for the first time this season.
