NaVorro Bowman on if it was an Achilles injury: “Yeah, it is”

Oct 3, 2016 at 9:39 AM--


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area joined Joe, Lo & Dibs on 95.7 The Game this morning to talk about the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and the highly likely loss of ILB NaVorro Bowman to an Achilles injury. Bowman went down with the non-contact injury in the third quarter while rushing the line of scrimmage.

"The MRI will be performed today," Maiocco said. "But, as I saw NaVorro as he left the locker room – this was probably an hour and a half after the game – I went up and talked to him and he said that. He said that 'I'll know a little but more after the MRI.' But he had the orthopedic boot and I did ask him, 'Is it your Achilles?' And he looked at me and he said 'Yeah, it is.'

"As you would expect, he was pretty downcast in talking to people afterward. Certainly the expectation for the – I should say the fear is that it's a season ending injury."

Maiocco was asked how big a loss this is for the 49ers. "I don't think the 49ers, with NaVorro Bowman or without NaVorro Bowman are going to win a lot of football games this year," Maiocco answered. "But this is one of those things that's kind of bigger than football. I think NaVorro Bowman has just been an extraordinary presence in that locker room helping the young guys. He's a guy that wants to be here. He wants to be with the 49ers. Last year was difficult for him but he's all 49ers. He's totally bought in to being part of this organization. And so to me, that's bigger. That's bigger than getting 12 tackles a game.

"With a lot of young guys around, there are going to be some really bad weeks to come into work on a Monday this season. There already have been. This might be the worst week for that. And NaVorro Bowman is the kind of guy that says, 'Hey, you're a professional. Whatever happened, put it out of your mind and let's get to work for this upcoming opponent.'"

You can listen to the entire interview on 95.7 The Game.

Official news on the injury will be announced once the results of the MRI are known.

Players react to loss of Bowman


Following the 49ers loss to the Cowboys, a number of San Francisco players shared their thoughts on the loss of their defensive leader, giving the impression that they already knew that it is a serious injury.

"It is tough to see anyone go down," said FS Eric Reid. "We will see what happens and the next guy has to step in and that is what we have to do. That next guy has some big shoes to fill."

"It stinks," said OT Joe Staley. "It's really, really bad. NaVorro is a captain for us, one of our team leaders. We're going to have to have a guy step up. That's a huge role to fill. You can't really replace a guy like NaVorro, but we have to have guys step up and be ready to go."

"Nothing changes, but he is definitely a big key on our defense," said SS Jaquiski Tartt. "Hopefully he will feel better and get back soon. We just have to keep getting better."

Kyle Shanahan discusses the ups and downs of the 49ers' injury-plagued season

"Injury-plagued" probably doesn't begin to describe what the San Francisco 49ers have gone through this season. Injury-ravaged? Snake-bitten? Cursed? Whatever you want to call it, head coach Kyle Shanahan knows it is unprecedented. Just look at the different sets of offensive weapons he's had available from week to week this season. It's a challenge to find consecutive games during which San Francisco has enjoyed consistency on the depth chart. That has made it difficult for the 49ers to maintain chemistry and build upon any momentum. "I thought we had that going a little bit at the Rams week into the New England week," Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "That was about three weeks in a row where we got Deebo

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Both wide receiver Deebo Samuel and running back Tevin Coleman are ruled out. Neither practiced this week. Two other receivers, River Cracraft and Trent Taylor, are listed as "questionable." Sunday will be Samuel's third consecutive missed game due to a hamstring injury. He also missed the first three games of the season after suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan noted that cornerback Richard Sherman would not be activated from injured reserve before this weekend's game. The 49ers opened his practice windows this week. Sherman's most-likely return will be on November

49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan says RB JaMycal Hasty broke his collarbone, provides other injury updates

San Francisco 49ers running back JaMycal Hasty went down with an injury in the fourth quarter of today's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He later left for the locker room to be examined. The injury left the 49ers with Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter as the only available running backs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game and said that Hasty suffered a broken collarbone. That means he'll probably miss a significant amount of time and will likely become yet another 49ers player to land on injured reserve. Shanahan is hoping to get running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) back after the bye week. "I'm hoping they are," Shanahan said of their chances to return in time for the 49ers' Week 12
