The San Francisco 49ers have released a statement regarding head coach Jim Harbaugh, who missed today’s practice.
“Coach Harbaugh is not at the facility today under doctor’s orders. He is having a minor procedure done at Stanford Hospital today for an irregular heartbeat. We anticipate that he will be back at the facility tomorrow, but do not have any further information to share at this time. Assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Brad Seely will be overseeing today’s practice and meetings. When more information regarding coach Harbaugh is available we will pass that along.”
Harbaugh was examined by doctors last night, decision was made to have what the team termed "a minor procedure" today.

We hope that Harbaugh’s procedure goes well and he’ll be back on the field as soon as possible.
