07:59 AM ET 06.29 | This time there were no arguments between Alex Smith and reporters, but Camp Alex II did have something in common with much of Part I. Michael Crabtree was on hand for the session but did not go through a full practice because of lingering concerns about his left foot. ... Today he arrived midway through the classroom session and then joined his teammates on the field. At first it appeared as if Crabtree would only watch from the sideline. But during warmups, he briefly left to get a new pair of shoes and then jumped in with teammates for some light warm-up work on the field. When the practice started, he hung close to the quarterbacks, charting plays. According to a teammate, the problem is Crabtree's left foot, which required surgery to correct a stress fracture prior to the 2009 draft.

Anyone remember Deion Sanders and his turf toe?

And this was the clown who held out for more money his rookie year. If that foot isn't 100% after 2 years, his career isn't going to amount to much.

Mornin'.

In SanFran, even a healthy body is no guarantee of a successful career, unless you're Jim Harbaugh's tooth-whitener guy.

Jack Lambert and turf toe... he was one tough LB

Crabtree's most disabling injury and the one that still affects him is 'turf brain'.

I remember Crabtree's rookie season, when he was holding out and being "advised" by.....Deion Sanders.

Bryant still hampered -- by poor work ethic and overwhelming sense of entitlement.

And poor ownership and a jackass for a GM. And some PTSD from having Wade Philips as HC for part of a season.

I am NOT a 49er Fan......But Alex Smith.....Sucks soooooooo Bad ......They should have gotten rid of him.......4 or 5 years ago.

On the Fields ..when it counts.. he is a Horra-Show. Just watch...he will suck this year also....or when ever the lock-out ends........

49ers.......PLEASE GET A NEW QB !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I sence, and maybe its just my cynical side, that when an athlete, oh lets use Tiger for example, falls miserably below expectations, that an injury is a good cure for what ails your ego.
If mr Crabtree had lit up the field last year and reached anywhere close to expectations, no one would have heard the words 'foot injury'.

Hampered by a sore foot, big mouth, and a bigger ego! DIVA!!

June 29, 2011  06:17 PM ET

If you're not a fan then what's your concern? You obviously did not watch any of the draft otherwise you would know that the 49ers did draft a QB.

When you have Jiimmy Raye as the offensive coordinator and Mike Singletary as you Head Coach and both are of a mindset that they want to make Frank Gore and the running game the center of their offense and the passing game can take a back seat, no wonder their wide receivers had lousy stats.
