Who Plays Receiver?

If Crabtree is indeed out for a long time, who is going to start at receiver?

I suppose that this makes Boldin our default #1 receiver. When Manningham comes back, he would be #2. Until then, #2 is between Kyle Williams, Quinton Patton, and (dare I say it), AJ Jenkins. Unless they decide to sign someone else.

I suppose, if I had to guess, on opening day, the corps would look like this:

Boldin, Williams, Jenkins, Patton, Lockette

Crabtree and Manningham on the PUP.

Suggs made a recovery from his torn achilles after 5 months. If Crabtree can do the same thing, then he would be back around November 1.

Here is link to an article where Suggs talks about his recovery (and Kobe Bryant's injury, which, interestingly enough, is very similar to Crab's).

This is definitely the worst news of the offseason. Maybe it will help in the long run with the cap though?
