Michael Crabtree, Bruce Miller dealing with injuries after 49ers win over Buccaneers

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers suffered some injuries in their Week 15 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We break down some of the details.

The San Francisco 49ers took care of business in Week 15 with a 33-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but they suffered some injuries late. Fullback Bruce Miller was shaken up late and apparently suffered a stinger to his left arm. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree suffered an injury to his left hand. Here were some of the media tweets following the game.

The 49ers play on Monday Night Football in Week 16, so they get an extra day to get ready. The first practice participation report will not come out until Thursday. Jim Harbaugh will likely meet with the media tomorrow at noon PT, but I would not expect any updates yet.

Anthony Dixon replaced Miller at fullback after his injury, so if Miller does miss any time, that would be the change. If Crabtree were to miss any time, Quinton Patton would likely find himself activated. For now though, we are hoping these are just bumps and bruises that will be overcome through the week.
