NaVorro Bowman may not play this season

Nov 14, 2014 at 9:05 AM--


This morning, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that there is a "real possibility" that San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman will not play this season.

Bowman has been recovering from a torn ACL and MCL that he suffered in last season's NFC Championship game in Seattle.

Yesterday, an MRI revealed that Bowman's knee looked fine. However, he has still experienced pain which has stalled the decision to activate him and allow him to start practicing.

The 49ers have until Tuesday, November 18th to clear Bowman or he will be lost for the season.

The 49ers have been struck hard by injuries and were hoping for Bowman, one of the league's best linebackers, to return to form and contribute before the end of the season. The team has already lost linebacker Patrick Willis, who opted to have surgery on a muscle strain in the big toe on his left foot, ending his season.

Steve Young says 49ers' late game fade in Detroit may be "a sign of immaturity"

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, and current ESPN analyst, Steve Young spoke on KNBR Radio on Wednesday, as he does each week during the NFL season. Among the other things he discussed on the Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show, which included labeling the 49ers quarterback situation as "fraught with terror," considering how it plays out, was how the 49ers finished the game against the Detroit Lions last Sunday. Specifically, how they went from having such a huge lead to almost losing that lead. Much has been discussed on this topic already, and debates have been held around the question of whether coach

Is recent history repeating itself? The San Francisco 49ers have already lost two starters for the season in cornerback Jason Verrett and running back Raheem Mostert. In addition, a report surfaced today that linebacker Dre Greenlaw will undergo core muscle surgery and miss six to eight weeks. The early losses have to remind players, coaches, and fans of the nightmare that was 2020 when the 49ers suffered through one of the most injury-plagued single seasons in two decades. Even in 2019, when San Francisco earned a trip to the Super Bowl, it had to endure several in-season injuries



Jimmy Garoppolo shares thoughts on 49ers future, may seek Aaron Rodgers' advice

Aaron Rodgers, for now, looks like he is holding off his eventual successor in Green Bay — Jordan Love. Rodgers' counterpart for the San Francisco 49ers, Jimmy Garoppolo, is trying to do the same. The Niners and Packers will clash on Sunday night as the former tries to remain undefeated in what is expected to be a tight NFC West race. Garoppolo joined The Rich Eisen show today and was asked about his NFL future and what he wants to come out of the 2021 season. Does he want to remain in San Francisco? It might take a superb season for that to happen, much like Rodgers did in 2020 or Garoppolo's mentor in New England, Tom Brady, did with him. "I don't know. To be completely honest, I haven't thought that far ahead yet," Garoppolo said. "It's one of



Breaking down the 49ers' CB depth chart if Emmanuel Moseley can't play vs. Eagles

The injury bug has hit the 49ers hard over the first week of the NFL season, especially in the secondary, as CB Jason Verrett is already ruled out for the season with a torn ACL and CB Emmanuel Moseley seems unlikely to play again in Week 2 vs Philadelphia. Moseley, who was in uniform Friday, was listed as doubtful on the injury list for the game with a knee injury. The injuries to the top corners on the team have prompted the 49ers to sign two new faces over the past two weeks: CB Josh Norman and CB Dre Kirkpatrick. Norman was signed on September 6th and was listed as an inactive against the Lions in Week 1, although head coach Kyle Shanahan said that the corner was ready to play if needed. He is expected to take on a much larger role in Week 2 with
