Brandon Lloyd joins Michael Crabtree on sideline

Brandon Lloyd AP

When it rains at wide receiver for the 49ers, it pours.

Michael Crabtree will miss the next week or two of practice with an injury that the 49ers have not disclosed, although Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that it is a sore hamstring that the team wants to rest so Crabtree doesn’t do further damage that keeps him out of the lineup for an extended period.

Crabtree will have some company in the trainer’s room. Coach Jim Harbaugh said that Brandon Lloyd will also be out for a week or two, although, as with Crabtree, the coach didn’t specify what kind of injury Lloyd suffered in practice this week.

Lloyd didn’t play at all last season, so he could probably use all the work the 49ers threw his way to earn a roster spot with the team or catch the eye of another club looking for help at receiver before the start of the season. Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson, Jonathan Baldwin, Bruce Ellington, Quinton Patton and Kassim Osgood round out the receiver group in San Francisco.

    Well, it’s better to be there than his imminent home called the unemployment line.

    Is there anyone who is hurt more than Michael Crabtree? The guy is made of tissue paper.

  6. soundsofsuccess7 says: Aug 1, 2014 5:14 PM

    Had no idea he was still playing.

    At least you have an all-world QB………uh, never mind.

    percy harvin has a ring and ran for a touchdown in the super bowl, something crabtree will never do. once a sorry guy always a sorry receiver

    Crabtree has played in 10 games against the Seahawks.

    He has never scored a touchdown.

    Can someone get Richard Sherman’s opinion on Crabtree being on the sideline please?

  12. bassplucker says: Aug 1, 2014 6:49 PM

    Good thing they have all that depth at RB at least.

    Oh, wait…

    This soft group of turds thinks it can stand up to Bam Bam and the Legion of Boom? I can’t wait to see Lloyd copy Crabtree’s trademark alligator arm move when he sees Chancellor rolling in to blow him up.

    MEDIOCRE

    This has not been the 49ers offseason.

    •••••••

    Despite making some pretty awesome catches, Lloyd often showed alligator arms during his first stint with the Niners back before Crabtree was even at Texas Tech.

    But since that occurred prior to 2011, I suppose this Seattle “Bandwagon” Fan didn’t watch football then.

    What a mediocre bunch of receivers. And with that makeshift secondary, the Seahawks will tear up the 49ers this year.

    Re-Pete.

    49er fans do a lot of talking during an offseason after the Seahawks sent them packing and won a ring. And our ring is all blinged out too. Not like the wooden ones they handed out back when the 9ers won theirs.

    In Sherman speak…”M-E-D-I-O-C-R-E”

    Crabtree has never played in the preseason and he won’t this time around. I’ll be glad when he’s gone off to anther team ( see Cowbows) he has good hands and RAC but lacks real #1 type speed and he thinks he’s worth a bunch. Baalke isn’t going to give him the 10 mil per that Crabtree wants.

    Off the Books for 2015
    Crabtree
    Justin Smith
    Frank Gore
    Mike Iupati….Maybe?
    Boone
    Boldin
    Harbaugh

  20. thereyougo2 says: Aug 1, 2014 11:43 PM

    Boldin himself should be enough.

  21. thereyougo2 says: Aug 1, 2014 11:45 PM

    Strange how PFT doesn’t even mention the tight end for the nines!
