49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree missed practice on Wednesday because of a calf injury, but it doesn’t look like he’s at risk of missing the date with the Cowboys.
Crabtree said Thursday that the injury isn’t serious and that he’ll return to practice with his teammates. Crabtree also said he’ll be in the lineup at AT&T Stadium and that he’s excited about taking the field in his home state.
“Anybody’s got to be excited for that. I can’t wait to get back home. It’s big for the team, period,” Crabtree said, via CSNBayArea.com. “This whole season. We got a lot on the table right now. Every game counts. Every game. One game at a time. I know a lot of people say it, but it’s so true. Right now, we’re just one game at a time, and the first one is the Cowboys. Very excited to play these guys and show them what we got.”
Crabtree was also asked about the prospect of a contract extension with the team before his deal is up after the season, but Crabtree said “we really don’t need to be thinking about it.” A season free of further questions about his health would be a good way to get everyone to stop thinking about his future and start lining up to be a part of it.
