Niners officially activate receiver Crabtree

Wide receiver Michael Crabtree has been activated from the 49ers’ physically unable to perform list.

The team made the expected announcement Tuesday, the deadline to activate Crabtree and still allow him to play this season after a 21-day window following his return to practice. The hope is that Crabtree will make his season debut for San Francisco (7-4) in Sunday’s home game against St. Louis.

Crabtree had career highs last season with 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns and was a big reason the 49ers returned to the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years. He tore his right Achilles tendon during 7-on-7 drills in an organized team activity May 21 and had surgery.

The 49ers waived QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who played at Balboa High School in San Francisco, to clear roster room.NFLSan Francisco 49ers
