WR Crabtree Gets Stitches Out

Michael Crabtree

While it’s still going to be a long process for wide out Michael Crabtree, there was some good news on that front, as he had his stitches removed after having surgery for his torn right Achilles’ tendon.

If he plans to play in 2013 – and coach Jim Harbaugh has been consistent in saying the injury isn’t season-ending – he must get to work right away.

Dr. Dan Solomon, an orthopedic surgeon with Marin Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Novato, said an aggressive approach to rehabilitation would get Crabtree in the pool and working on his range of motion as soon as the surgical wound heals.

The rehabilitation routine for Achilles’ injuries has been honed and improved over the last decade or so, one of the reasons the injury is not the career-ender it used to be.
