Bucs placed TE Tom Crabtree (biceps) on injured reserve, ending his season.
The reserve suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Lions. Crabtree was viewed as a nice under-the-radar signing when the Bucs lured him away from Green Bay, but he did little more than block his first year in Tampa. Crabtree finishes 2013 with four catches for 21 yards. He's signed for an affordable $750,000 in 2014, but there's no guarantee he'll be back. Mon, Nov 25, 2013 02:08:00 PM

Bucs TE Tom Crabtree (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 6.

Crabtree has been sidelined since the preseason finale with a high-ankle sprain, but is "hopeful" of making his 2013 debut Sunday. He'll immediately reassume his starting job if active. A blocking tight end, Crabtree isn't on the fantasy radar.

Bucs TE Tom Crabtree (ankle) practiced Monday, and is "hopeful" of making his 2013 debut Sunday.

The Bucs' starting tight end has been sidelined since the preseason finale with a high-ankle sprain. Tampa has been forced to mix-and-match with waiver-wire talents in Crabtree's absence. The former Packer will be a low-end TE2 whenever he finally gets back on the field.

Bucs declared TE Tom Crabtree, G Carl Nicks, QB Dan Orlovsky, CB Rashaan Melvin, FB Erik Lorig, DT William Gholston, and DT Chris Jones inactive for Week 1 against the Jets.

Crabtree is out indefinitely with a high ankle sprain.

Bucs TE Tom Crabtree has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, and is out indefinitely.

Crabtree had to be carted off the field in Thursday's preseason finale. Beat writer Rick Stroud terms the sprain as "severe," suggesting Crabtree could miss all of September. The injury further thins one of the league's weaker tight end corps. The Bucs should be monitoring the waiver wire for help. Luke Stocker will start Week 1.

Updating a previous item, X-rays on Bucs TE Tom Crabtree's left ankle came back negative.

Crabtree was carted off the field during Thursday night's preseason finale. All this confirms is that the ankle isn't broken. He's likely dealing with at least a high-ankle sprain. Luke Stocker is the favorite to start Week 1.

Bucs TE Tom Crabtree was carted off the field with a left ankle injury during Thursday night's preseason finale.

Crabtree is vying for the starting job with Luke Stocker. He's also been playing some fullback this summer. The Bucs have arguably the weakest tight end depth chart in the league, so any amount of time missed by Crabtree will be felt.
Thu, Aug 29, 2013 08:12:00 PM

Bucs agreed to terms with TE Tom Crabtree, formerly of the Packers, on a two-year contract.

A restricted free agent, the Packers wanted Crabtree back, but rolled the dice they could sign him for less than the $1.32 million low tender. They were wrong. The Pack have always been high on Crabtree's talent, but to date he's mostly blocked. He has just 18 catches in 46 career games. Crabtree could momentarily vault to the top of Tampa's barren tight end corps, but it remains a need position.

Packers declined to tender TE Tom Crabtree, LB Rob Francois, and OLB Frank Zombo, making all three unrestricted free agents.

The Packers would like to have Crabtree and Francois back, but didn't deem either worthy of the low restricted free agent cost ($1.323 million). Their interest in retaining Zombo is "uncertain." Crabtree is a useful blocker. Green Bay may step up efforts to re-sign him if it parts with Jermichael Finley.

Packers TE Tom Crabtree was forced from Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury.

Green Bay's No. 2 tight end is questionable to return.
Sun, Dec 16, 2012 03:24:00 PM

Packers TE Tom Crabtree caught one pass -- good for a 72-yard touchdown -- in Green Bay's Week 9 win over Arizona.

Aaron Rodgers found Crabtree wide open for the 72-yard catch-and-run score in the fourth quarter. Mostly a blocking tight end, Crabtree has just six receptions all season. Leave him on waivers during Green Bay's Week 10 bye.
Sun, Nov 4, 2012 05:47:00 PM

Tom Crabtree caught two passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 6 win over Houston.

Crabtree found himself completely wide open on a fluky 48-yard score in the third quarter of Green Bay's 42-24 blowout win. The touchdown was his second of the season, but with just five catches in six games, bigger days don't appear to be on the horizon.
Mon, Oct 15, 2012 12:47:00 AM

Packers TE Tom Crabtree confirmed that he almost always blocks when he's in the game.

The Packers clearly fooled the Eagles on Crabtree's 7-yard touchdown in the first quarter Sunday. It was Crabtree's first career touchdown after catching just four passes all season.
Mon, Jan 10, 2011 09:06:00 AM

Packers TE Tom Crabtree is Donald Lee's biggest competition for a roster spot.

Rookie Andrew Quarless and Spencer Havner have secured spots on the team. Undrafted last year, Crabtree is drawing rave reviews for his blocking and intense work ethic. The fact that Crabtree can be an impact special teams player won't hurt his chances if the Packers keep only four tight ends.
