49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said WR Michael Crabtree's return in a few weeks is "doable. I'm not going to make any proclamations, but he's right on track." Fellow receiver Mario Manningham also is a pending addition to the 53-man roster.
A few weeks could mean just about anything, especially to a football coach, but we would expect Crabtree to sit 3-5 more weeks, which could put him back somewhere in the Week 11 to Week 13 range. He may not be useful in the first game or two back, but he could conceivably be startable during the fantasy playoffs.
