“Courtney’s weight issue – which he does need some pounds – is that he doesn’t eat right,” Harbaugh said, according to the team's website. “Courtney eats too much and he doesn’t eat all the right foods. He knows that and that’s something he’s going to have to get a handle on, or he’s not going to be the best he can be. But he’s aware of it. Everybody in our building is involved with it. He’ll be in fighting shape, I promise you that.”
Upshaw is up to 285 pounds after being listed at 272 last season and he says he is working to get the weight off.
“I’m working, man. I’m working real hard,” Upshaw said. “It’s anything to try to get me down. It’s frustrating to not see my weight go down knowing I’m putting in all that work. It’s frustrating because I had to go through the same thing last year. But I did it."Upshaw played in all 16 regular games last season, with nine starts, 60 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
