San Francisco 49ers: OTA News and Notes

  • Left tackle Joe Staley had a minor arthroscopic procedure done on his knee during the off-season and is not taking part in OTAs. The 49ers expect him to be ready for training camp.
  • Running back Frank Gore is also sitting out the spring practices but the nature of his injury is unknown. Head coach Jim Harbaugh did say it was nothing serious.

    “Just working through something,” said Harbaugh. “Nothing too serious.”

  • Wide receiver Kyle Williams and running back Kendall Hunter were both participating in individual drills and should be ready for the start of training camp. Both players are rehabbing from season ending injuries suffered in 2012. Williams (knee) and Hunter (Achilles) were both hurt on the same play during the second half of a 49ers’ victory against the New Orleans Saints.
  • Other players sitting out in order to rehab injuries were outside linebacker Aldon Smith (shoulder), defensive end Justin Smith (arm), wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee), outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (unknown), and guard Mike Iupati (shoulder).
