San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was absent from Thursday's practice. In a statement from the 49ers' public relations, we were informed that the second-year coach is having a "minor procedure done" and was not present under doctor's orders.

Statement on Jim Harbaugh from the San Francisco 49ers:

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.

There is no need to speculate as to the severity of this. This is a situation that will likely be updated by the team accordingly.

Update:

According to Sacramento Bee writer Matt Barrows, he was informed by a team source that Jim Harbaugh is expected back tomorrow.
