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.

The 49ers already have a slew of established veteran standouts on defense, with players such as Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Jason Verrett, Jimmie Ward, and Arik Armstead leading what should be a talented mix. But there may be three more players ready to join that group this season, according to defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans. Ryans was asked during a media session on Wednesday which players he feels are in a position to make a big leap once the season gets underway. The first player he singled out was defensive tackle Kevin Givens, who has shown some flashes in a reserve role since joining the 49ers as an undrafted rookie out of Penn State in 2019. Givens had 19 tackles and a sack in 13 games last season after playing in just one game as a rookie. "I look at a
