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 elbow. 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.
