49ers vs. Seahawks: Dashon Goldson Out, Madieu Williams Likely To Start

After days of speculation, it appears 49ers free safety Dashon Goldson will miss week one against the Seattle Seahawks. Goldson has not practiced all week and his availability for Sunday has declined as he continued to miss workouts and drills.

SB Nation Bay Area had the news of Goldson sitting out on Wednesday and we continued to update the situation all week as Goldson's condition did not improve.

Kevin Lynch tweeted the information earlier today:

Again no Dashon Goldson for practice, which makes him probably out for Sunday. Expect Madieu Williams to start for him.

Matt Barrows confirmed the news as well:

Ex-Viking Madieu Williams likely to start at FS for the 49ers. He might know the SEA offense better than anyone. QB, OC came from Minnesota.

That is an interesting take from Barrows to suggest a potential benefit by playing Williams, though one probably shouldn't look too far into it. As far as Goldson's injury goes, no official return date has been set, but 49ers fans can probably expect their safety back by week three at the latest.
