Coach Jim Harbaugh insists that Michael Crabtree's Achilles' tendon tear is not a season-ending injury.
The Niners aren't giving any kind of firm timetable, but the rehabilitation process typically takes at least six months. If Crabtree is back in exactly six months, he'd return for a Monday night game against the Redskins in Week 12. However, he'll almost certainly be eased back in slowly as the Niners keep their eye on having him make an impact in the playoffs. Owners in standard re-draft formats can cross Crabtree off their draft boards.
Jim Harbaugh is a doctor too? WOW.... the guy does it all!
