Bee sport staff

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree has suffered a torn Achilles' tendon while participating in organized team activities Tuesday and will likely be lost for the upcoming season, the USA Today is reporting from the team's headquarters in Santa Clara.

A person speaking on the condition of anonymity told the paper Crabtree will undergo surgery and begin the season on the physically unable to perform list.

In his fourth season in 2012, Crabtree was the most consistent receiver for the 49ers. He caught a career high 85 passes for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns.

The 49ers have not commented on this report.
