Safety Jaquiski Tartt ended last season on injured reserve after tearing a ligament in the big toe on his right foot in a Nov. 5 game. He required surgery to repair the injury.
“At this point, I’m doing well,” Tartt said Monday after re-signing with the 49ers on a one-year contract, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. “Surgery went well. Rebab’s been going well.
“But when it happened, I thought I’d probably miss a game or two, and to get the news that it was a Grade 3, it was tough for me.”
Tartt, 29, has played only 36 of the past 64 regular-season games because of injuries. That’s why Tartt thought maybe the 49ers wouldn’t re-sign him after six seasons in San Francisco.
“I was up in the air,” Tartt said. “I wasn’t sure because of me coming off the injury. I wasn’t sure they’d want me back here or not. They did. That was a good thing for me. I felt like I left a lot on the field last year so I’m glad to be back here.”
