We’re sure many NFL head coaches get irregular heartbeats every Sunday. However, 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh actually has one all the time, and he went under the knife to get it corrected on Thursday.
The San Francisco 49ers released a statement explaining why he wasn’t at 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.”
We wish him well and speedy recovery.
