Crutchlow came off his Tech 3 Yamaha in an identical place on the Sachsenring circuit, at the formidable downhill turn 11 left-hander, in both of Friday's practice sessions.
Fortunately for Crutchlow he avoided serious injury, although he had to be treated for scrapes and burns after his second accident in the second session.
Going into the weekend, team manager Herve Poncharal said: "Today [Friday] was a very difficult one for Cal.
"He has no broken bones, but in the second crash when he was sliding down the track, several pieces of gravel became trapped inside his right glove.
"They had to be removed by the medical staff at the Clinica Mobile and the wounds cleaned up.
"Cal's forearm also suffered some friction burns, and while it is nothing serious, it is still very painful and uncomfortable.
"He is going to rest now, but we are sure that he is going to be fine to ride tomorrow [Saturday].
"Cal has incredible mental strength and he is a true fighter, so I have no doubt he will bounce back and still put in a strong performance for the team over the rest of the weekend."
Crutchlow is currently fourth in the championship standings, 49 points behind leader Dani Pedrosa, but on a roll after scoring three podium finishes in the last four races.
