    Re: Crabtree is injuried won't workout

    Via Rotoworld...

    NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that Michael Crabtree will be sidelined for the next ten weeks following surgery for a "slight" stress fracture in his foot.
    He'll have a screw inserted into the foot. Crabtree has nursed this injury since mid-October in 2008, so it's no surprise to find out that something's seriously wrong. He will not work out at all before the draft. Crabtree's put a lot on film in Mike Leach's spread offense, but he risks falling out of the top 5-7 picks. He measured far shorter than expected on Friday and won't be able to answer questions about his 40 time at Pro Day.
    That's gotta be such a disappointment for him.

    Horrible situation for Crabtree. So much for any further discussions of drafting him with the number two pick.

    Re: Crabtree is injuried won't workout

    More information from Wagoner...

    INDIANAPOLIS –

    (11:15 a.m. Update) Crabtree Has Jones Fracture

    -Breaking news from the combine. A previously unnoticed injury to Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree has come to light.

    -NFL Network first reported that Crabtree has a stress fracture in his left foot and will require surgery. The report also indicates a 10-week recovery time.

    -Stlouisrams.com has learned that Crabtree actually has a “Jones” fracture, which is a break of the fifth metatarsal, located near the little toe on the foot.

    -Crabtree will indeed need surgery to have a screw inserted in his foot but sources close to the situation say that Crabtree could still go through with his March 26 Pro Day before he has the operation.

    -The injury is not believed to be too serious and Crabtree is expected to come out of it OK, the only question is whether he will be able to work out before the draft. If he’s not, that would give him just about a month to recover before the start of training camp.

    -We’ll have more on this story throughout the day.
    This is an interesting situation. The injury everyone knew about was the ankle injury, so how long as this one been bothering him? Was it not an ankle and instead was this the whole time? Or is this on top of the ankle? If he's had this one since mid-season, then he's shown he can still play on it and play well. He said at the combine that he was around 90-95% and had already started running in preparation for the forty at his pro day.

    If he puts off the surgery until after his pro day, his recovery time will cut into OTAs and minicamps, but barring complications, he should still be ready for training camp.

    Re: Crabtree is injuried won't workout

    THIS COULD BE GREAT FOR THE RAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now that he has a stress faracture and needs 10 weeks to recover the Seahawks wont take him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!

    The seahawks only want a safe pick.

    One of the major reasons i wanted him was cuz if we dont get him the hawks will now they cant!!!!!!!

    This is probably best case senerio for the rams!


    Crabtree = the next Adrian Peterson. (Raiders get him not the seahawks)

    I don't see this having much affect on when he goes. He's going to be a player

    Re: Crabtree is injuried won't workout

    WR prospect Crabtree has stress fracture in foot
    By Adam Schefter | NFL.com

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Medical testing at the scouting combine here revealed that Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree, one of the top prospects in this year's NFL draft, has a slight stress fracture in his left foot that will require surgery to insert a screw, league sources said Saturday morning.

    The injury and surgery is expected to sideline Crabtree for at least 10 weeks, jeopardizing his NFL pro day, which now is expected to be cancelled, and raising questions about when he will be healthy again. Doctors believe that with the precautions the All-American wide receiver is willing to take, Crabtree will be sufficiently recovered in time for training camp this summer.

    After doctors found the slight stress fracture on Friday they conducted more testing on Crabtree, including a bone scan that revealed that the injury happened only recently, possibly during training for the combine. Since finding it, Crabtree has been investigating the best and smartest way to treat the injury.

    Crabtree is hardly the first player forced to battle through a slight stress fracture. Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens once had one before having a screw inserted in his foot, and just last year, running back Jonathan Stewart opted for the same procedure that Crabtree soon will undergo and Carolina still drafted him with the 13th overall pick.

    There now will be concerns about Crabtree and his foot. But one doctor said Saturday that there would have been more concerns if Crabtree were not going to have the surgery, because then teams would know at some point his foot would break.

    Crabtree also measured slightly shorter than expected, coming in at 6-foot-1 3/8 and weighing 214 pounds. Most teams thought Crabtree was 6-foot-3. But as Seahawks head coach Jim Mora pointed out, Crabtree had the longet arms of any receiver in the draft, and it easily would cancel out whatever the wide receiver was missing in height.

    The only two-time Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation's top wide receiver, Crabtree was regarded as a surefire top-five pick. He still is expected to be a top pick, but how his injury will affect his draft status will be one of the most hotly debated questions.

    To keep it short, I just don't see the Rams taking him. Not that I ever thought they would, but if he doesn't work out at all there is no way we take this guy.

    I tend to agree. The tape speaks for itself and goes a long way in evaluating a guy's play. But Crabtree has a lingering injury and then injured himself in another manner just by training for the combine. Suddenly durability and health becomes a legitimate concern. I think our chances of taking him at this point are pretty slim.

    Im not the one calling him the Messiah. That is weedle. I am the one that compares him to spiderman.

    He is not strong so not superman
    He is not fast so not the flash
    He does not talk to fish he is not quackman
    He is not old so no Batman

    The guy is spiderman! U watch him catch all the passes and then get those YAC kinda like spiderman doing his web tricks. He will be doing them in Oakland.




    This year the Cardinals were horrible outside the division. there record was (3-7). Inside the division there record was (6-0) which got them into the playoffs. then eventually into the superbowl. This just shows how important division wins are.

    You know as well as i do that there is not a single Ram on the roster right now (Bartell isnt re-signed yet) that can cover Crabtree. Other than Jenkins and Vonte Davis there is not CB in the draft that has a slight chance in covering Crabtree. Also there is no man in our secondary that can tackle Crabtree. So how are we supposed to defend him?

    We would play the Seahawks twice a year. And i dont want to see us lose to them just cuz we did not take Spiderman and the Hawks did.

    DIVISION GAMES ARE IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sure they are. But getting tunnel vision on a single opponent, who is not much better than you, can end up doing more harm than good. Look at the ***** of the early 2000s. They spent years trying to build a team that could beat the Rams. Unfortunately, in doing so, they built a team that was less capable of beating the other 30 teams. You'll note San Francisco is still recovering from that effort.

    A receiver is as only good as his quarterback, and a quarterback is only as good as his line. The Seahawks have an aging QB on the decline, and a drastically weakened line. Crabtree in a Seahawks uniform is not the extreme threat you make him out to be.
