49ers Activate Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree From PUP List

Along with the roster cuts made thus far, the 49ers announced today that they've activated wide receiver Michael Crabtree from the physically-unable-to-perform list. Crabtree had initially been placed on the list July 28th, following a stress fracture in his left foot he'd received earlier in the offseason. He has missed the entirety of the preseason through three weeks, and all of the 49ers' 23 practice sessions thus far.

He'll also likely miss Thursday's preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers, which is par the course for Crabtree, as we know. He's yet to play in any preseason action in the NFL, having nagging injuries (and drama with Vernon Davis) in 2010, and a rookie contract holdout in 2009. By all indications, this move should signify that he's ready to go for week one.

I do like that he was actually out on the field yesterday, catching a couple warmup passes, even before being deactivated from the PUP. To me, that's a good sign, he wants to get back in there and work, and hopefully he can shut up some of us 49er fans who are more than a little critical of him, his play and perhaps unfairly, his attitude. Today, he did much of the same light working out he did yesterday.
