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 have been trying to manage defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw's knee injury, but some extended rest might be necessary for the second-year player. Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Kinlaw is a candidate to land on injured reserve, which would force him to miss a minimum of three games. "Yes, definitely [have to consider injured reserve]," Shanahan said. "Yeah, it's something we're worried about and concerned about, something we'll probably decide here in the next week." What are the 49ers' options with the interior of the defensive line without Kinlaw? "We've got [Kentavius] Street, we've got D.J. Jones, we've got Zach Kerr," Shanahan responded.

The San Francisco 49ers started 2-0 but have since lost three consecutive games. No one inside the organization is panicking, though. Instead, the focus remains on one game at a time. That means looking toward the Indianapolis Colts, not backward at the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. At 2-3, San Francisco sits in last place within the NFC West. However, general manager John Lynch is confident he and head coach Kyle Shanahan have built a roster that can rebound. The 49ers are in their bye week, and a lot of football remains in this 17-game season. "I'm fully confident [the pieces are in place to turn things around] because of the people in our room and the character of the people in our room, because of the people we have in leadership
