Being in his contract year, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree will be looking to make a major impact in 2014. He’ll especially be out to prove himself after he missed 11 games last season. But he already has some sort of setback in the comeback attempt as head coach Jim Harbaugh informed the media that Crabtree will be out “a week or two” with an undisclosed injury.
Michael Crabtree will be out for a week or two. It’s not foot or Achilles related, Jim Harbaugh said. #49ers

In five games last season, Crabtree caught 19 passes for 284 yards and a score after rejoining the team late in the season to help with their Super Bowl push. As we know, that didn’t turn out that well as he was the victim of Richard Sherman’s rant following the NFC Championship Game where the potential touchdown grab was batted down.
But Crabtree was supposed to be at full speed this summer and ready to contribute fully to this team once again, but whatever this setback is is hindering that mightily.
It’s also been no secret that, being in his contract year and with his career getting up there in years, he would like one last lucrative contract from the team.
