The San Francisco 49ers are mere days away from the start of the 2011 campaign, but will have to start the trek without a key piece of their secondary as safety Dashon Goldson is unlikely to play on Sunday to his knee injury per the San Francisco Chronicles’ Eric Branch:

The Niners injury woes are minor compared to the Seahawks as both Sidney Rice and Robert Gallery are questionable for them this Sunday, while the only other significant injury the Niners are dealing with is Mike Crabtree’s foot, even as he takes place in full practices and likely could play. Reggie Smith or Madieu Williams would be the likely replacements for Dashon this Sunday, though the team hopes Goldson won’t have to miss any more games because of this injury along the way.
