Decision coming on Michael Crabtree

The 49ers have a couple of days left to decide whether to activate wide receiver Michael Crabtree or put him on injured reserve.

Crabtree started practicing on November 5, but the 49ers limited his participation for a short time before ramping things back up last week. Coach Jim Harbaugh didn’t offer up much of a hint about the team’s ultimate plans in regard to Crabtree.

“It’s been good. Did some good things,” Harbaugh said, via Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group.

If they think he’s close to 100 percent, the 49ers could activate Crabtree on Tuesday even if he’s not ready to play in a game. It seems unlikely that he’ll be activated in time to play against the Redskins on Monday night, which could leave the 49ers thin at receiver.

Mario Manningham is listed as questionable because of a knee injury. With Quinton Patton out, the 49ers would be down to three wideouts for Monday night if Manningham isn’t able to play.

Cornerback Tarell Brown (ribs) and guard Mike Iupati (knee) are also out for the Niners. Defensive tackle Ray McDonald is questionable with an ankle injury.

    I am curious, if the 49ers lose the game, are the 49er fans going to blame it on injuries?

    I am curious, if the 49ers win the Super Bowl, are NFL fans going to be jealous? If they win the Super Bowl and have 6 draft picks in the Top 100… will NFL fans be envious?

    Hmmmm, could injuries possibly be a valid excuse? Don’t injuries to starters provide a legitimate excuse for all NFL teams if they underachieve? What is your point…I am curious…

    I would probably wake up and realize it was just a dream. Then I would youtube the last 4 downs of last year’s Super Bowl and smile.

    Did that 49er fan just say Super Bowl for this team. You understand that right now you are not even in the playoffs for the last wild card spot, Arizona currently holds that.

    Point to draft picks, last year was one of the biggest bust draft classes of all time. Jenkins, James, Looney.

    The last three Super Bowl winners were 10-6, 9-7, and 10-6. So the Super Bowl is absolutely still possible for the Niners.
