Guard Mike Iupati, who sustained a broken left ankle in the NFC Championship game, is back on the practice field, according to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.
“He’s great,” Harbaugh said to ESPN Boise radio on Thursday. “He’s healthy. He was out practicing on the field today. He’s recuperated from his ankle (injury) and looks as good as ever.”
Iupati enters the final year of his contract.
This is the first week of Phase II of the 49ers’ offseason program, during which coaches are allowed to instruct and lead drills on the field.
Harbaugh appeared as a guest on the show with co-host Michael Christianson, who served on the 49ers’ coaching staff in 2011 and ’12.
