49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree is very excited to be back on the practice field with his teammates as he continues to rehab his Achilles.

“I was the first person out there today stretching for no reason,” Crabtree said via the San Francisco Chronicle. “But I’m just excited to be back.”

He also made it clear that he’s not targeting any specific date when it comes to when he’ll play his first game of the season.

“I’m just going to go day-by-day,” he said. “You get into circling dates and it’s kind of rushing yourself to be ready by then. I just feel like I need to go one day at a time.”
