NEW ORLEANS -- Joe Montana vows to return to the San Francisco 49ers next year, unless his elbow does not totally heal from surgery.However, if he is forced into a substitute's role, Montana said before the 49ers' loss to the Saints on Sunday, he would consider finishing his career with another team.During his first lengthy interview since elbow surgery last month, Montana described the severe pains of his injury and of not having the chance to return this season.Montana said he hoped to test his throwing arm as early as January and his golf swing by entering the AT&T Crosby afterward.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Joe Montana's stay on injured reserve could extend well beyond the four weeks the 49ers quarterback is scheduled to miss.The question of how long the healing takes comes down to what's hurt and what's not.Dr. Arthur White, who performed surgery on Montana in 1986 to remove a ruptured disk in his back and whose Daly City clinic is treating Montana's elbow, confirmed recent published reports, saying the injury is a torn ligament as well as a torn tendon. He said it will require a minimum of three months to heal completely.

SAN FRANCISCO -- What has come to be known as "Montana time" for the 49ers occurred with 2:11 to play and San Francisco trailing New Orleans by three points.Eric Davis' darting, 24-yard punt return had set up the 49ers' offense with a first down on the 50-yard line.Piece of cake, right? Not this time.There would be no Montana and no miracle 49ers' finish on one of the most bone-chilling afternoons in Candlestick Park history.That's because Montana was on the sideline in blue jeans and a red parka, where he had been all day after developing a mysterious -- or maybe not so mysterious -- injury.

They took a 10-0 lead and looked serious about it until unwittingly relinquishing the baton to Montana 32 seconds before intermission.
