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.
