The San Francisco 49ers are back on the field today, beginning the first of three days worth of OTAs this week. The 49ers will have one more session June 3-6, and then will wrap up the offseason workout program June 11-13 with a mandatory minicamp.
The big news to come out of today's practice thus far is that Joe Staley underwent a knee scope earlier this offseason. Matt Barrows reported it, and has indicated Staley is expected to be 100% by the start of training camp at the latest.
According to Cam Inman, Staley is doing some basic cardio work in the weight room along with Frank Gore, while Mike Iupati, Justin Smith and Aldon Smith were working on a side field with trainers. Aldon Smith is rehabbing a torn labrum, but should be good to go in time for training camp. Iupati had shoulder surgery of his own and is expected to be good to go for training camp. I would love to learn more about why this team dealt with so many shoulder injuries last year.
According to the beat writers posting (Inman, Barrows), NaVorro Bowman, Tarell Brown, Michael Crabtree, Anthony Davis, Jonathan Goodwin and Mario Manningham were absent. I believe Goodwin is back home in South Carolina, where he is doing all his work during the offseason workout program.
As more info comes in, I'll update this with tweets and whatnot. We've got a little bit of video, courtesy of Cam Inman. He has some video on Tout, and then below you can view some Vine video (an iPhone app). You'll need to look at it sidewise:
