Jim Harbaugh Undergoes Minor Procedure For Irregular Heartbeat

The San Francisco 49ers were without head coach Jim Harbaugh at the team’s practice facility today because their leader is undergoing a minor procedure at Stanford for an irregular heart beat.

In the absence of Harbaugh, special teams coach Brad Seely has been overseeing the organization.

The 49ers issued a statement to respond to notes of the minor procedure.

“Coach Harbaugh is not at the facility today under doctor’s orders,” the 49ers said. “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.”

There is no word on whether or not Harbaugh will be in attendance for the team’s Monday Night Football match up against the Chicago Bears. We wish Harbaugh a speedy and full recovery.
