The San Francisco 49ers announced that G Joe Looney has passed a physical and therefore was activated from the active/non-football injury list. Looney was a fourth-round draft pick out of Wake Forest in April after suffering a foot injury at the Senior Bowl, but has already garnered praise from coach Jim Harbaugh for his attitude and football knowledge.
You can also follow Looney during his first NFL Training Camp on his 49ers.com Rookie Blog. While he couldn’t get on the field with his teammates, Looney spent much of the offseason alongside backup lineman Chase Beeler, taking mental reps and learning the offense from the sidelines and in the meeting rooms. The 49ers didn’t practice Tuesday, but are scheduled to return to the fields on Wednesday morning.
