When it comes to gauging Michael Crabtree’s playing status for Sunday, it’s probably best to go by what the wide receiver does and not what Jim Harbaugh says.

As 49ers players walked off the practice field today in Santa Clara, they encountered a welcome sight: Wide receiver Michael Crabtree catching passes from a team trainer. Crabtree was moving laterally between two orange cones, set up about 10 yards apart. He seemed to move well as he snagged short passes from the trainer and flipped the footballs back to him.

It started with defensive end Justin Smith’s partially torn triceps in New England last season, continued with pass rusher Aldon Smith’s shoulder surgery, wide receiver Michael Crabtree’s torn Achilles tendon and now Culliver, just to name a few. During the off-season program, so many veterans were resting it looked like it was difficult to field a team. All of this might be just happenstance.
