The 49ers and Rams released their first practice participation reports of the week and the most intriguing part of the report to me was the fact that Michael Crabtree was not included on it. I believe this is the first time all season that Crabtree has not been included on the injury report.
Crabtree has been playing even with limited reps, but getting full reps strikes me as a pretty big deal heading into the stretch run of the season. He and Alex Smith are getting on the same page more and more as the weeks progress, but getting full reps with each other week in and week out is a big deal in my mind. Add in Braylon Edwards sitting out for now with injury issues, and it gives Crabtree that many more opportunities to work with Smith. I don't know how much of a difference it will make, but it seems like it has to be a good thing.
As previously mentioned, Braylon Edwards did sit out practice today and Adam Snyder and Bruce Miller both suited up. Snyder and Miller were both limited, so we'll have to wait and see how much they practice the next couple days. I'd imagine both will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
