Report: Harbaugh rejoined 49ers at practice Thursday


When the 49ers announced that coach Jim Harbaugh was having a procedure Thursday to correct an irregular heartbeat, they said that they expected him to be back at work on Friday.

Assistant head coach/special teams coach Brad Seely was said to be running the team in Harbaugh’s absence, but Seely didn’t get a particularly extended run with the whistle. Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Harbaugh actually returned to the team for the second half of Thursday’s practice. That suggests that the procedure was both a success and about as minor as could be given the problem that needed to be addressed.

That’s obviously good news about Harbaugh’s condition. Barring any other issues with his ticker, it feels pretty safe to assume that Harbaugh will be at practice on Friday as well and that he will be coaching the team against the Bears on Monday night.

And that’s good news for the 49ers, who will be trying to get back on the winning side of things after last Sunday’s tie against the Rams.

    Stay healthy coach!! As much as this Niner fan appreciates what you have done for a once proud franchise the last year and a half, nothings more important than your health!

    I didn’t realize he even had a heart.

    Darn, and I was looking forward to seeing that fan from the commercials coaching the 49ers.

    Shock the world? I think many (including me) are expecting the 49ers to win.

    I agree with sonoco…we are done “shocking the world”….there isn’t a game in football I don’t expect us to win…

    Cutler is out … the Niners should win. Not exactly a shock.

    I’m a Niner fan but please don’t say SF is a lock to win. The 49ers are 0-1-1 in guaranteed wins this year. Welcome back coach, go Niners.

    I usually don’t care for the constant “Harbaugh is a whiner, cheater, idiot, etc.” posts. But even I think this one was funny.

    Glad you’re back, coach! Go Niners!
