The 49ers could activate him even if he’s not ready to play just to avoid losing any chance of him playing this season, but coach Jim Harbaugh said after Monday’s win that the team expects Crabtree on the field when they face St. Louis.

“I anticipate that he’s going to come back this week,” Harbaugh said, via the San Francisco Chronicle.
