San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (foot) could miss four to six weeks of training camp and the preseason. The injury that kept him out of player-led practice in June is more seriously that was previously believed or reported. The exact nature of the injury is unknown.

Crabtree had surgery to correct a stress fracture in his left foot early in 2009. He reinjured the same foot on June 6, the first day of a player-run minicamp. San Fran was in the running for Chad Ochocinco before the vet was traded to the New England Patriots; they were seeking a potential starter to replace Crabtree if he isn't ready when the season begins.

Unless the 49ers sign a veteran, Josh Morgan is likely to be the No. 1 receiver in training camp with Ted Ginn Jr. as the No. 2.

Amazingly QB Alex Smith will miss no time after getting thrown under that bus Crabtree was driving a few weeks back.
