49ers activate Bowman to 53-man roster, put McDonald on IR

Dec 9, 2014 at 11:25 AM--


Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have activated linebacker NaVorro Bowman to the 53-man roster.

Bowman has been recovering from an ACL and MCL injury suffered during last season's NFC Championship game.

The team has placed tight end Vance McDonald on injured reserve to make room for Bowman.

Don't expect to see Bowman this week against Seattle or perhaps anytime soon. 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has said that Bowman will need several weeks of practice before he is ready to play. With the 49ers playoff hopes close to an end, it is still possible that you may not see him this season.

49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line.

The 49ers won in a thrilling, yet somewhat alarming way Sunday, as they went to Detroit to face the Lions and wound up victorious with a 41-33 final score. During the first quarter and a half of the game, the Lions kept it fairly close, losing only 14-10, but the 49ers pulled away in the second and third quarters, leading 38-10 at one point. In fact, with just under six minutes remaining, the 49ers led by 24 points, but a collapse, influenced by multiple defensive injuries, gave the Lions a chance to tie the game, as they reached the SF 24 yard line down just eight points, but failed to score. After the game, George Kittle shared the lesson that he and the team learned from this surprisingly close win, speaking to the level of talent in the
