Crabtree is expected to be on the field for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams.
The former first-round draft choice enjoyed a standout season last year, making 85 catches for 1,105 yards with nine touchdowns.
In 58 career games with San Francisco, Crabtree has 260 receptions for 3,345 yards and 21 touchdowns.
