"I'm just feeling good, man," WR Michael Crabtree said after a recent practice. "It's been a while. It just feels good not to have to go through so many warm-ups, putting on a bunch of wraps and (ointments) just to go out and play."
Crabtree's left foot has undergone two surgeries and is pain-free. He says it hasn't felt this good since he was a college freshman in 2007.
His improved health is good news, but the 49ers added Mario Manningham, Randy Moss and A.J. Jenkins this offseason, so Crabtree's targets are likely to be reduced unless the team changes its offensive philosophy.
