NaVarro Bowman of the San Francisco 49ers will have ACL ligament surgery at some point today as he looks to push ahead with the steps of his recovery from tearing both his ACL & MCL.

The horrific injury happened late in the 49ers' NFC Championship Game 23-17 defeat against the Seattle Seahawks in January. 

Bowman took a picture of himself heading into surgery today as he looked ready for the fight, whilst sporting a hospital gown, surgical cap, and a fearless look on his face. 

"Time for surgery." Was the caption on the photo that he uploaded, and it appears that there is still hope that he might fully recover. 

The injury occurred when Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse, was forced into Bowman's standing left leg, and it was harrowing to watch. 

It's understood that the blood flow around the knee is still good, which means there is a chance for a successful surgery. 

Doctors have said that Bowman should be back in action within eight months, which means he will most likely miss the start of the 2014 regular season.
