Staley back in uniform

Good news on the injury front. LT Joe Staley, whose foot infection heretofore has kept him off the field, is in uniform this morning and going through individual drills. Staley said he cut his foot while walking on a beach, which allowed celulitis to set in. The foot ballooned to the point where Staley needed to be hospitalized. Once Staley returns to team drills, Barry Sims will go back to competing at right tackle with Jonas Jennings.

Kentwan Balmer is day to day with a sprained right ankle. I was told yesterday that the injury is not the dreaded high-ankle sprain. Other injured Niners of note are Ashley Lelie (calf) and Mark Roman (hamstring). Dashon Goldson continues to get work in Roman's absence.
