Niners Expect NaVorro Bowman Back by Week 9


Slowly but surely, linebacker NaVorro Bowman is working towards returning to the field for the San Francisco 49ers. After suffering a gruesome ACL tear during the NFL title game against the Seattle Seahawks, it was feared that the All-Pro would be missing the entire 2014-15 NFL campaign.

Fear not Niner fans, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Bowman is expected back just in time for the mid-season push.

NaVorro Bowman (ACL recovery) is expected to go on the physically-unable-to-perform list when he reports to camp this week. The smart money on his return is after the team’s Week 8 bye.

This is welcome news for San Francisco, as the team hopes to push past the Seahawks en route to a Super Bowl title.
