49ers vs. Bengals: Alex Smith Cleared To Play, Michael Crabtree Limited In Injury Report

The San Francisco 49ers received some good news at practice today as quarterback Alex Smith was cleared to both practice and play in this week's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. In addition, wide receiver Michael Crabtree was able to participate in limited drills and continues to look like he will play on Sunday. Here is the entire injury report:

Full Participation:

CB Tramaine Brock (hand), QB Alex Smith (concussion)

Limited Participation:

WR Michael Crabtree (feet)

Did Not Participate

WR Braylon Edwards (knee), RB Moran Norris (fibula)

No real surprises here. It is unfortunate that Edwards will miss the game, but he had to have a basic procedure on his knee, which could leave him out between two and four weeks.

With Crabtree back in the mix, depending on his health, it will be interesting to see if Smith and the coaching staff open up the playbook and attempt to incorporate him into the offense in as many ways possible.
