Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 3/91 -- Navorro Bowman, ILB, 6-0, 242, Penn State: The 49ers expect Bowman to be a backup at inside linebacker. He appears best-suited to be a backup to Patrick Willis in the middle. He should be a core special-teams player. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout *Navorro Bowman News
08/24/15 - ILB NaVorro Bowman started, was on the field for three plays, and recorded three tackles, two for losses, in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys, his first action since suffering a knee injury in the 2013 NFC Championship Game
08/21/15 - ILB NaVorro Bowman is expected to make his preseason debut in front of the home fans Sunday when the 49ers host Dallas. Bowman sat out the preseason opener at Houston as a precaution and hasn't played in a game since suffering a serious knee injury in the NFC Championship Game at the end of the 2013 season. 49ers coach Jim Tomsula indicated Bowman will be a game-time decision.
08/17/15 - ILB NaVorro Bowman was held out of Saturday's loss at Houston as a precaution. 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula initially had said Bowman, who missed the entire 2014 season with a knee injury, would return for the preseason opener. But the coach took a conservative route and changed his mind on game day.
08/13/15 - ILB NaVorro Bowman will start and see "limited" playing time in the preseason opener at Houston on Saturday. Bowman hasn't played in a game since suffering a serious knee injury in the NFC Championship Game at the end of the 2013 season.
04/29/15 - LB NaVorro Bowman practiced with the 49ers on Wednesday -- his first action with the team since he suffered a gruesome knee injury in the NFC Championship Game in January 2014.
"I'm out there," Bowman said. "I'm putting my jersey on just like everyone else and doing as much as I can do and that my knee allows me to do.
"I'm passing all the tests. My knee is still stable and holding up the way they expected. Just continue to work through the little bit of aches that I have, but it's going to be there for at least another year and I just have to figure out how to deal with it."
Bowman did not practice or play last season as he rehabilitated the left knee that incurred tears of the ACL and MCL in the 49ers' loss to the Seattle Seahawks leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII.
