Rashod Bateman Having Groin Surgery, Back in September


Bateman’s injury is obviously a tough blow for the passing attack considering how good he looked in training camp and the expectation that he could make an immediate impact.

Harbaugh’s point that it’s “good news” is that surgery will allow Bateman to put the injury behind him instead of trying to deal with rehabbing it throughout the season. Groin injuries have a tendency to linger, so Bateman will instead get it fixed, recover, and move on.
