Niners lose center Eric Heitmann for 6-8 weeks

According to Matt Maiocco of Comcast Sports Net Bay Area, 49ers center Eric Heitmann will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken left fibula. Heitmann suffered the injury in Monday’s practice. He’ll likely miss the early part of the regular season.

The Niners, fortunately, gave longtime guard David Baas plenty of snaps at center during the offseason. It’s possible Baas would have ended up replacing the intelligent but athletically-limited Heitmann at some point anyway. With Baas now at center fulltime, you can essentially put to rest any doubt that first-round rookie Mike Iupati will be filling the left guard spot in Week 1.
