49ers wide receiver Braylon Edwards underwent a surgical procedure on his injured right knee and a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Edwards is likely to miss three weeks.

Coach Jim Harbaugh refused to predict a timetable for Edwards' return or provide further details. The coach had to be pushed to reveal the surgery at all.
