    Great work as always on these

    One note RE: Crabtree – I wouldnt necessarily say he’s “all the way back” just yet. On a few plays over the past two weeks he’s looked sapped from his traditional speed and quickness, which culminated on a dufus 15 yard Personal Foul penalty where he threw the football after not being able catch-up to a deep ball Kaep three, and he was wide open.

    He would have definitely caught that pre-injury. He’s been semi-slow at times and thats concerning, knowing how crafty and explosive he was out of his breaks last year. Maybe he’ll progress over time, but just my observations.

      SJ,
      Thanks for sharing. I didn’t get to see all of the game, but was impressed with what I saw. Appreciate you sharing your insight here.

    I am impressed Crabtree was able to play at all this season – a full off season of conditioning and strengthening for further recovery should have him at close to ”good as new” – an ACL usually takes 12 to 15 months for 90 to 98% – original strength is not usually reached regardless of efforts and guidance

    Mike, he didn’t suffer an acl, he injured his Achilles tendon, so the healing process is a bit more complicated, and the speed takes longer to return. There’s no clear way of knowing what that return will look like, but like you said with the off season, he could be fine. Some have a harder time returning from this injury than an acl. I’m betting on Crabtree though
