49ers receiver Michael Crabtree is rounding into form. In his third game back from a torn Achilles tendon, Crabtree caught five passes for 45 yards and a touchdown Week 15 vs. Tampa Bay. It was his first touchdown since the Super Bowl.
49ers rookie running back Marcus Lattimore, who was expected to sit out the 2013 season recovering from a major knee injury suffered in college last year, could be cleared to practice soon, according to The State. Lattimore has been on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list all season.
The Seahawks defense has four players listed on the injury report for Week 15 against the Giants, with two of those players expected to play through their issues in Sunday's game. Defensive back Richard Sherman (feet) and defensive lineman Chris Clemons (not injury related) were both able to practice in full Friday and are probable for the game.
Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who continues to deal with a hip problem, will not practice Wednesday, reports the team's website. Harvin has missed three straight games and appears likely to miss Week 16 vs. Arizona.
There's no real formula to predict exactly what Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will do in Week 16 against the Cardinals. His carries have lessened as the Seahawks seemingly look to rest his legs for the playoffs, but he's still averaging about 17 carries per game over his last three games, with touchdowns in each of his last two.
