Michael Crabtree: lingering concerns about left foot

Sacramento Bee - [Full Article]

49ers WR Michael Crabtree was on hand for today's session but did not go through a full practice because of lingering concerns about his left foot. The receiver attended the 49ers' previous minicamp but only took part in the June 6 practice. According to teammate Josh Morgan, Crabtree suffered sore feet during that Monday session after practicing in new shoes. He attended the morning classroom sessions Tuesday-Thursday but left when they were over and did not go out to the practice field.

According to a teammate, the problem is Crabtree's left foot, which required surgery to correct a stress fracture prior to the 2009 draft. Crabtree is being cautious with the foot and doesn't want it to grow into a more serious problem. Crabtree did not speak with reporters today.

Fantasy Impact: 

This will be a situation to monitor as camps open and the regular season draws closer. For what it's worth, Crabtree himself said today that there is nothing wrong with his feet.
