Golden Nuggets: Bowman Ahead of Schedule

Monday, April 7, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. We all know NaVorro Bowman as a tough warrior and an elite athlete. That's why it's no suprise that just 2 months after he tore both the ACL and MCL in his right knee, he is already going around without crutches. It's clear his desire is to miss zero games this upcoming season, but of course, it is highly doubtful the team will allow him to play at the start of the season, because there is solid depth at the ILB position and they have multiple years invested in him. Still it would be...

49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman says he’s ahead of schedule

49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman has been making the rounds without the aide of crutches. Bowman’s knee buckled at an horribly awkward angle when players fell on his left leg in the 49ers NFC title game loss in Seattle. Bowman tore his anterior cruciate ligament and his medial cruciate ligament after falling on the ball for what appeared to be a 49ers turnover. At the bottom of the pile, the Seahawks recovered. After surgery in January, Bowman now says he’s ahead of schedule in his media interviews with ESPN, CSNBayArea and Bay Area Newspaper Group. Bowman told ESPN he will begin running...

How do young linebackers fit in Seahawks’ plans?

How do young linebackers fit in Seahawks’ plans?

One of the notable moments of last season was when San Francisco linebacker NaVorro Bowman was hurt during the NFC title game. Bowman was down with the ball after a Jermain Kearse fumble at the goalline. San Francisco safety Eric Reid had come in and hit a falling Kearse, whose weight and momentum ended up pushing into Bowman’s planted left leg. It was a gruesome buckle that tore his anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament. The Seahawks were able to wrestle the ball away from the injured Bowman before the referees could sort out who had possession. … Read more »

49ers depth chart 2014: What's next at inside linebacker in free agency and the 2014 NFL Draft?

The San Francisco 49ers face an important question with NaVorro Bowman sidelined for the near future with ACL and MCL damage. Are Michael Wilhoite and Nick Moody the answer opposite Patrick Willis, or will there be additions? San Francisco 49ers inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman was in town on Tuesday for an autograph session and a visit to the 49ers headquarters. Naturally this resulted in some media availability for the rehabbing linebacker. Steve Corkran and 49ers.com each put together some of his comments, and are both worth a read. Given the timing, I thought we'd move on to the next...

49ers notes: Harbaugh supports ‘NaVorro Bowman rule’

49ers notes: Harbaugh supports ‘NaVorro Bowman rule’

NaVorro Bowman became the unofficial face of the new rule proposal when, during the NFC Championship Game, he recovered a fumble by Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse at San Francisco’s 1-yard line. Although replays clearly showed Bowman was down by contact with the ball in his possession, Harbaugh was unable to challenge the ruling, and the Seahawks ended up with the ball because it was a non-reviewable play. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (3) is stopped by San Francisco 49ers inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman (53) during the NFC championship game between the San...
