It's going to take time for Crabtree to learn an offense vastly different than the spread system in which he played at Texas Tech.
"It shouldn't take long," said 16-year veteran Isaac Bruce, who occupies the locker stall next to Crabtree. "He seems like a bright guy."
Coach Mike Singletary said, "It's going to be a process. Hopefully, after the bye, Mike will be ready go to. It will be a small role at first. It's going to be a work in progress. We will find ways to get him on the field."
