49ers OG Mike Iupati Had Offseason Surgery, Likely To Miss Some OTAs
49ers' All-Pro and Pro-Bowl left guard Mike Iupati had a procedure on his shoulder and is unlikely to take part in the team's upcoming OTA sessions, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports, this according to a source with knowledge of the injury.
Iupati started every game of the 2012 season and played 98 percent of the 49ers' offensive snaps. Beginning in Week 14, he was one of several 49ers who began appearing on the team's injury report with a shoulder injury, he was listed as 'probable' from that point through the Super Bowl, Iupati apparently injured the joint in a Week 13 win against the Dolphins.
The exact nature of the injury is unknown, but it is considered minor and Iupati is expected to be back at full strength for the start of training camp. Iupati also had shoulder surgery after his 2007 season at the University of Idaho.
