In this 49ers news and rumors update, the San Francisco 49ers likely won't have to worry about entering the 2014 season without wide receiver Michael Crabtree as an available weapon.
After missing practice on Wednesday with a calf injury, speculation surfaced that Crabtree could very well sit out the Niners' opener in Dallas against the Cowboys. However, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk, that isn't the case:
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.
Crabtree is absolutely thrilled to start off the 2014 NFL campaign with a chance to showcase his talents in his old backyard.
"Anybody’s got to be excited for that. I can’t wait to get back home. It’s big for the team, period,” Crabtree stated, 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.”
