As originally reported by Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee, 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree’s foot injury will keep him on the sidelines for a couple of weeks of training camp.
The 49ers announced on Thursday night that Crabtree, rookie fullback Bruce Miller, and wide receiver Dominique Zeigler have been placed on the physically unable to perform list.
According to Barrows’ report, Crabtree could miss four-to-six weeks of camp, which would be the third straight preseason the 10th overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft will have missed. Crabtree did not sign his rookie contract until October, and sat out last year’s preseason games with a neck injury.
Crabtree re-injured his foot during the the player-run workouts at San Jose State University in June.
In 27 games over his first two seasons in the league, Crabtree has 103 receptions for 1,366 yards and eight touchdowns.
