Crabtree finished with 89 receptions (on 145 targets) for 1,003 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games played this season, but he did drop a league-high 13 passes thrown his way, The Mercury News reports. Crabtree led the Raiders in catches, targets and receiving touchdowns -- placing in the top 10 league-wide in the latter two categories -- despite playing opposite Amari Cooper, who blossomed into a Pro Bowler in his second season. In fact, 2016 marked the second time in eight seasons that Crabtree topped the 1,000-yard mark. Overall, his final numbers were strikingly similar to those from his first season in Oakland, when Crabtree posted a 85/922/9 line last year. That evidences the veteran's consistent role in a passing game that's emerged as one of the league's best behind quarterback Derek Carr, but Crabtree could improve his stock further by dropping fewer balls next season. Although he suffered a concussion in the Raiders' playoff loss Saturday, Crabtree figures to make a full recovery over the offseason, which he now enters having not missed a single regular season game over the past three years.
Crabtree suffered a concussion Saturday in Houston and won't return to the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. With third-stringer Connor Cook under center, Crabtree gathered in just two of seven passes for 33 yards before his departure, though a potential catch was negated by an offensive pass interference call. With Crabtree out of commission, Cook will have to rely upon Amari Cooper, Seth Roberts, and Andre Holmes as the primary wideouts.
Crabtree (ankle) is active for Saturday's game at Houston. A regular of the Raiders' injury report since Week 12, Crabtree has fallen below 50 yards receiving just twice in the last six contests, while hitting the end zone two times. He won't have the luxury of working with Derek Carr due to a broken fibula nor his primary backup Matt McGloin (shoulder). Instead, Crabtree will look to connect with rookie signal-caller Connor Cook, who will be attempting to sidestep Jadeveon Clowney and company.
Crabtree (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Texans. Crabtree's ankle injury limited during the practice week, but it'd be a surprise if he isn't active Saturday, especially considering the Raiders might need all the help they can get with rookie Connor Cook making his first-career start at quarterback.
Crabtree (ankle) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday. The same applies to fellow wideout Amari Cooper (shoulder), but both players should be fine for Saturday's playoff game against the Texans, a contest in which the Raiders will hand QB Connor Cook his first career NFL start in the wake of injuries to both Derek Carr (leg) and Matt McGloin (shoulder).
