NaVorro Bowman suffered torn ACL & MCL, reports

Published Add your comment

The 49ers feared that linebacker NaVorro Bowman injured both his ACL and MCL against the Seahawks on Sunday and those fears have been realized.

According to ProFootballTalk, Bowman tore both ligaments when wide receiver Jermaine Kearse fell on his leg while Bowman was stopping Kearse short of the end zone. The ball came loose and fell into Bowman’s arms, but the Seahawks retained possession because the officials made the wrong call on the field.

Bowman suffered no dislocation and will have surgery to repair the ACL after giving the MCL some time to heal. It’s the same course of action as the one Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski followed after his knee injury during the season and Gronkowski had the operation a little more than a month after getting hurt.

Bowman is expected to miss most, if not all, of training camp and his rehabilitation could even extend in to the regular season which would be a huge blow for him and the 49ers.
