Golden Nuggets: 49ers fixing strength and medical departments

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday, February 12th 2019

Late Monday, reports came out that the 49ers are planning to hire Ben Peterson to head up both the medical and strength departments. This was part of a plan to bring both departments together.

After getting the post together, I went and watched a YouTube video he put together on injuries in the NHL. It’s really an interesting watch and displays his data gathering/research skills and how he evaluates injuries. It also has geese shouting in the background.

All jokes aside, the 49ers needed to do something, what they had wasn’t working. Bringing both strength/conditioning together with the medical side should be great for everyone to communicate methods and status reports on rehab in a much more efficient manner. Peterson seems like a great person for it. It’s still early to see how this shapes up, but it looks like they are on their way.
