49ers | Michael Crabtree expected to go on short-term IR

The San Francisco 49ers will place WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list. He could miss the first 10 to 12 weeks of the season, but the team believes he will be able to come back at some point during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree probably will miss at least the first half of the season and may not be 100 percent if he is able to play this season. Owners should not consider adding him until he is close to a return.
