49ers Crabtree Could Return In A Few Weeks

49ers_Michael_Crabtree_2013Sometime in the next six days, the 49ers will add wide receiver Michael Crabtree back to the 53-man roster.

But according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, it might still be several weeks before he takes the field.

As with the case of Percy Harvin in Seattle, the 49ers pulled back a bit on Crabtree’s activity after his first week of practice, rather than risk a setback as he recovers from a torn Achilles.

Of course, he could still end up on the field as soon as Monday, but the pace of his work at recent practices points to a slower process, and they could always just deactivate him on game days for a few weeks if they need to.
