Michael Crabtree hauled in 6-of-11 targets for 51 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.
Like his quarterback, Crabtree did not stand out as having a particularly poor day, but he simply could not get anything going along with the rest of the passing attack. He did have a chance at a big play in a one-on-one situation down the field, but he could not come up with the catch. Crabtree has yet to top 85 yards this season, and he has not found the end zone since Week 7. It is unlikely either of those trends change next week against Denver. Nov 19 - 7:55 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-4 targets for 40 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

It was a down game for Crabtree, who also had a drop. He has just one touchdown and has been held under 40 yards in two of his last three games. Crabtree will take a 36/441/6 line into a Week 10 bye.
Nov 6 - 12:15 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 5-of-10 targets for 83 yards in the Raiders' Week 8 loss to the Bills.

Crabtree was hot early with 72 yards on three first-half catches, including a 40-yard bomb against Shareece Wright. The Bills clamped down from there, bottling up both Crabtree and Amari Cooper (5/48/0). Crabtree will remain a quality WR2 play when the Raiders face a weaker Dolphins secondary next.
Oct 29 - 4:14 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-7 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

Crabtree caught the game-winning touchdown, but not before committing offensive pass interference on another would-be game winner. It was that kind of night in Oakland, as the Raiders and Chiefs treated fans to a thrilling, sometimes incomprehensible, game. Crabtree is now up to six 2017 touchdowns, and has scored in 4-of-6 appearances. He gets the Bills for Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:25 AM

Michael Crabtree tallied six catches for 52 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

This wasn’t a big yardage game for Crabtree, or really any Raider as Derek Carr opted for more of a dink-and-dunk approach while battling through a painful back injury. But Crabtree still did Crabtree things with his biggest highlight coming on a 23-yard touchdown grab midway through the first quarter. Crabtree beat Trevor Williams on an out route and did a nice job of staying in bounds as he tiptoed down the right sideline. He was the intended target on Carr’s first interception of the day and shoulders some of the blame for not being on the same page as his quarterback. Sunday continued Crabtree’s recent annihilation of the Chargers, who he’s now scored against in five straight games. He’ll be safe to fire up as WR2 Thursday versus the division-leading Chiefs.
Oct 15 - 9:00 PM

Michael Crabtree (chest) has been removed from the Week 6 injury report.

Crabtree looked fully healthy in his return last week, catching six passes for 82 yards and a touchdown. He'll be a WR2 against the Chargers.
Oct 11 - 6:54 PM

Michael Crabtree absorbed six-of-eight targets for 82 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 5 loss to the Ravens.

Crabtree looked no worse for the wear in his return from a bruised lung, accounting for over half the team’s receiving yards. He got Oakland on the board with a 41-yard touchdown in the second quarter, dusting Brandon Carr on a deep ball from E.J. Manuel. Crabtree was Manuel’s clear go-to receiver, drawing a team-high eight targets compared to only two for Amari Cooper. The Raiders will try to halt their three-game losing streak next week against the 1-4 Chargers.
Oct 8 - 8:47 PM

Michael Crabtree (chest) wasn't listed on the Raiders' final injury report for Week 5 against the Ravens.

Neither was Amari Cooper (knee). Crabtree will return to action after sitting out one game with a bruised lung. His upside will be limited with E.J Manuel under center, though he should regain WR2 status as soon as Derek Carr returns from his back injury. That could happen as soon as next week.
Oct 6 - 4:41 PM

Michael Crabtree (chest) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

It means he'll be returning after missing Week 4. The problem is that E.J. Manuel, and not Derek Carr, will be under center against the Ravens' feisty defense. That makes Crabtree a boom/bust WR3. The Raiders' offense could go off the rails in Carr's absence.
Oct 5 - 7:09 PM

Michael Crabtree (chest) returned to practice on Wednesday.

He was oficially limited. Crabtree looked healthy at practice, running slant routes and catching passes from E.J. Manuel. Coach Jack Del Rio has already said he expects Crabtree to suit up against the Ravens after sitting out Week 4 with a bruised lung. Derek Carr's back injury is a downgrade for all of Oakland's receivers.
Oct 4 - 5:58 PM

Coach Jack Del Rio is "optimistic" Michael Crabtree (chest) will return for Week 5 against the Ravens.

Crabtree sat out last week against the Broncos with a bruised lung. It won't be a great matchup if he's back, especially with E.J. Manuel delivering the football, but Crabtree would be back on the WR3/FLEX map.
Oct 4 - 3:03 PM

Raiders declared WR Michael Crabtree, CB Gareon Conley, QB Connor Cook, DT Darius Latham, S Keith McGill, OT David Sharpe and OT Jylan Ware inactive for Week 4 against the Broncos.

Crabtree suffered a bruised lung in last week's loss to Washington and was downgraded to doubtful after sitting out Friday's practice. Consider him week-to-week. Conley is out with a shin injury despite practicing on a limited basis on both Thursday and Friday. Amari Cooper (knee) and Jalen Richard (calf) are both active for Sunday's game in Denver.
Oct 1 - 2:58 PM

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport confirms Michael Crabtree (doubtful, chest) is out for Week 4.

Crabtree suffered a bruised lung in the second half of last week’s game. It’s a more serious injury than initially thought, but not something that should keep him out of Week 5. With Crabtree sidelined, Amari Cooper and Jared Cook will see more red-zone targets.
Oct 1 - 8:25 AM

Michael Crabtree (chest) has been downgraded to doubtful for Week 4.

Crabtree had been trending toward not playing after a late-week setback. He'll miss his first game since 2013 Sunday against the Broncos. Amari Cooper will see a larger target share with Crabtree sidelined, with Jared Cook and Seth Roberts also in line for expanded roles. Crabtree should be on track for a Week 5 return.
Sep 30 - 8:25 PM

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio declined to say if Michael Crabtree (questionable, chest) suffered a setback at Friday's practice.

Crabtree didn't practice Friday after putting in limited sessions earlier this week. It's possible he was given a rest day, but he's now trending in the wrong direction. Crabtree's chest injury didn't look overly serious and he's not dealing with any structural damage. Even with a late game, Crabtree's status should be known early Sunday.
