Tuesday marked the start of another exciting round of “Camp Alex,” the players-only 49ers minicamp organized by Alex Smith.
Roughly 20 players showed up, including wide receiver Michael Crabtree. For the second straight minicamp, Crabtree sat in with the team during Smith’s teaching sessions but mostly watched the workouts. (He didn’t run routes but was out there.)
Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee writes that Crabtree has been sidelined because he has been bothered by the same foot that required surgery before the draft.
It’s not a huge deal that Crabtree isn’t running around in June, but getting him on the field for once in training camp will be a priority for a team with little playmaking ability at wide receiver.
