Slight anatomical correction as far as Mark Roman's injury. The team spoesman who told me yesterday that Roman had minor elbow surgery called back this morning to say that he mispoke: It was actually minor shoulder surgery.
So the story should read like this: Some of you may have noticed the new video on 49ers.com in which Mark Roman has his right arm in a sling. I'm told that Roman had minor surgery 10 days ago to clean out loose bodies in his shoulder. The procedure is not a big deal and Roman won't miss much time. He will, however, be held back during the first week of OTAs, which begin in a week. Look for Dashon Goldson to get the first-team reps in Roman's absence.
