Between his rookie holdout and constant August injuries, Crabtree has never played in a game that doesn't matter. His presence on the field is a little surprising so soon after he returned from his latest injury, but his fellow starter at wideout is even more surprising.
"Ted's had a great camp -- really pleased with Ted," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. "He's catching the ball, he's blocking, he's playing all the positions -- the X, the Z, the slot. He's doing it all. He's running good, getting in and out of his cuts."
We're hesitant to read much into preseason depth charts, but it's worth noting another report indicating Moss hasn't seen a lot of action in camp. Harbaugh previously said there was a five-way tie for his No. 1 receiver spot between Crabtree, Moss, Ginn, Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams.
"A lot of obvious questions," he said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "A lot of the master-of-the-obvious questions today. They could be really answering themselves up here."
We love Jim Harbaugh.
