Harbaugh was admitted to the hospital Wednesday Night and underwent a minor procedure for an irregular heartbeat during the day Thursday. The procedure was being done at Stanford Hospital, and it is said that he will be back to the team facility on Friday, but it is unsure in what capacity.
Assistant Head Coach and Special Teams Coordinator Brad Seely oversaw the teams practice today, and informed the team what was going on with Harbaugh.
49ers’ middle linebacker Patrick Willis told SI.com that Harbaugh sat right behind him in team meetings at the he seemed fine. He went on to say, “It’s one of those things that, like Coach Harbaugh always tells us, he’s tougher than a $2 steak. We know he’s going to be alright. We know we have a bunch of great coaches here that keep everything on track, and we’re going to practice today as if he was here.”
Hopefully Harbaugh will be back coaching as soon as he can and won’t miss any significant time, especially with his team coming down a crucial stretch of the season.
