Michael Crabtree says he’s fine for Sunday

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 “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.

    The Niner offense are going to light up the Dallas secondary and smash their D line. It’s going to be great.

    GO NINERS!!!!!

    Great to hear. Let’s get after it Niner Nation. It feels good to finally be able to say “Football is back!”

    But his ego is still bruised from the last play of last years NFC Championship Game.

    Who’s got it better than you? The Seahawks. That’s who.

    But, I am glad Crab is healthy.

    Que the jealous and obsessed Seahawk fan comments. Can’t wait to see Wilson get crushed and Sherman tear something tonight.

    Madden Curse!

    Of course he is. All he had was a calf strain and since he’s a key player for us they pretty much sit him out of practice until he’s better. I’m pretty sure most teams do this.

    Wow – just in time.

    Y’all needed another ailment to explain his mediocre play.

    Mediocre receiver

    Crabby is a top 10 receiver when healthy. Probably best hands in the league. Time to put in work Frisco! I love all the doubt I’ve been reading lately….
