Draft Scout *Navorro Bowman News
12/14/14 - LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) was placed on reserve/injured by the 49ers Saturday (Dec. 13).
12/10/14 - ILB NaVorro Bowman did not practice Wednesday and has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Seattle. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday that Bowman, who was added to the 53-man active roster Tuesday, has a chance to play in one or both of the team's final two games against San Diego and Arizona. The 49ers hope to have him back at practice next week.
12/09/14 - LB NaVorro Bowman was activated from reserve/physically unable to perform by the 49ers Tuesday (Dec. 9). Bowman had to be put on the 53-man active roster no later than Tuesday in order to be eligible to play this season.
The two-time Pro Bowler tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee during last season's NFC Championship Game against the Seattle Seahawks. Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery on Feb. 4.
Bowman has not returned to practice with the team, but that might happen this week. He's not expected to make his season debut Sunday at Seattle.
In four seasons with the 49ers, Bowman has played in all 64 games and started every game the past three years.
Last season before the injury, Bowman had career highs in tackles (192), sacks (5.0), forced fumbles (four) and interceptions (two). He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2012 and 2013 and selected as first-team All-Pro in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
12/08/14 - The 49ers' braintrust huddled late Monday in an effort to make an important decision regarding the immediate future of standout inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman.
The club has until Tuesday afternoon to either place Bowman on the 53-man active roster or declare him out for the season.
The 49ers had hoped to use some on-field evaluation in their decision-making process when they opened a 21-day window on Bowman on Nov. 18. But while he has been able to work out with 49ers trainers on the side and in the weight room, Bowman has not been cleared to return to practice during the three-week period that ends Tuesday.
"We're going to discuss that this afternoon," Harbaugh said during his noon press conference Monday. "All the medical (staff will) weigh in today and make the decision."
Bowman tore both the MCL and ACL in his left knee in the NFC Championship Game last to Seattle last January.
12/03/14 - ILB NaVorro Bowman is not expected to practice with the 49ers this week, coach Jim Harbaugh indicated Monday. The 49ers have until Dec. 9 to add Bowman to their 53-man active roster or declare him out for the season. The club had hoped to assess him on the field before making the decision, but that now appears unlikely. Bowman has not played this year after undergoing major knee surgery at the end of last season.
