Michael Crabtree (undisclosed) missed practice, 'working through something'

Mercury News - [Full Article]

Michael Crabtree missed his first practice of training camp Thursday, and it’s unknown whether his past
Achilles or foot injuries are the reason.

“Mike’s just working though something. He’s fine,” said offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who proceeded to praise how improved Crabtree is from his injury-shortened 2013 season.

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. Let's just hope this injury is nothing serious.
