Crabtree playing extensively, but no action yet


Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

HOUSTON -- Rookie receiver Michael Crabtree started for the 49ers. He has played all six offensive snaps.

But if the 49ers had specific plans to get him the ball early, those plans have not gone as expected. The 49ers have gone three-and-out twice without targeting Crabtree.

The offense has gone through Frank Gore and Vernon Davis to this point.

I would expect the 49ers to make a more concerted effort to get the ball to Crabtree.
