According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, 49ers offensive lineman Mike Iupati underwent offseason shoulder surgery and will likely miss San Francisco’s upcoming OTA’s sessions.
Add Mike Iupati to the list of 49ers who had surgery this offseason. The team’s All-Pro and Pro-Bowl left guard had a procedure on his shoulder and is unlikely to take part in the team’s upcoming OTA sessions, according to a source with knowledge of the injury.
Iupati started every game of the 2012 season and played 98 percent of the 49ers’ offensive snaps. Beginning in Week 14, he was one of several 49ers who began appearing on the team’s injury report with a shoulder injury. He was listed as ‘probable’ from that point through the Super Bowl. Iupati apparently injured the joint in a Week 13 win against the Dolphins.
The exact nature of the injury is unknown, but it is considered minor and Iupati is expected to be back at full strength for the start of training camp. Iupati also had shoulder surgery after his 2007 season at the University of Idaho.

Look at this photo. Look at this god damn thing. Look at it and tell me you have ever seen anything more spectacular. You can't. You would be lying. And I hate liars.
I have no real context for this image. I just thought it was important enough to show you all this today on a crappy Monday. I was found from a rather random Twitter account, and that didn't really provide...
