"That would be our hope, too" Harbaugh said before practice, according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. "We'll have to wait and see. Today would be his first practice, and we'll see how he responds to today's work, to today's treatment. We'll know more tomorrow and more the next day, and ultimately, it will be in the doctor's hands."
"We'd much prefer to have Delanie out there," Harbaugh said. "He is a great football player, first and foremost. He is smart, physical, intelligent, play-making ability. That's not to say that the next guy that steps up doesn't have some of those same qualities -- certainly Justin Peelle has filled that role very well."
