NaVorro Bowman visits accident victim injured on her way to 49ers game

Jan 10, 2017 at 9:21 PM--


It was New Year's Day and Sienna, a San Francisco 49ers fan from Santa Maria, California, was on her way up the coast to Santa Clara with two others, probably excited to watch her beloved team. Unfortunately, she never made it to the game. The vehicle that she was traveling in was involved in a car accident before they arrived. Two strangers, who were driving next to the vehicle as the accident occurred stopped and were among the people that helped until medical personnel could get to the scene. Sienna's mother, Kristina, called the good samaritans "two angels."

Thankfully, everyone in the car survived. While one within the car suffered a couple of broken ribs and the other a gash on the head, Sienna suffered a broken leg and fractured lower vertebrae. While in the hospital, she went through three surgeries pretty serious surgeries but was able to finally leave the hospital on Tuesday after remaining there for 10 days.



An experience like this has obviously taken its toll on the family and friends of Sienna, who we hope and pray recovers soon. Prior to being released from the hospital, Sienna received a visit from her favorite 49ers player, NaVorro Bowman, who heard about the tragedy and decided to bring her a new jersey to replace the one she was wearing during the morning of the incident.



While meeting with Sienna, Bowman told her, "When you get back up and walking, I've got sideline passes for whatever game you want to go to, okay? And I'll make sure they know you went through what you went through and you overcame it, okay?"

As of this posting, Sienna is making the three-and-a-half hour journey home with her mother. Stay strong Sienna. Like the 49ers and the Niner Faithful, we're rooting for you.

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about

Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens has some insight on the situation between the San Francisco 49ers and their current wide receiver star, Deebo Samuel. Owens recently told NBC LX that he spoke with Samuel but wasn't willing to disclose the details of that conversation. Owens did share the following, though, courtesy of NBC Sports Bay Area. "I've talked to him personally. I know what's going on," Owens said before his Fan Controlled Football game over the weekend. "I know what transpired. Until he's ready to say what happened with that situation, I just keep that between us. But it's



49ers' 2022 schedule among the toughest in strength-of-schedule rankings

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule



Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not
