San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) may miss half of the 2014 season, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. Bowman tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in the NFC Championship Game against the Seattle Seahawks and had surgery Feb. 2. 'Realistically, halfway through the season, something like that would be more realistic. But I never underestimate NaVorro Bowman -- He's a supreme athlete, a world-class athlete among world-class athletes. The way he moves, his strength, his powers of healing.' LB Michael Wilhoite would likely enter the lineup without Bowman.
Huddle Up: Whatever length of time Bowman is out, it'll be a big loss for the Niners as the LB is the league's runaway leader in total tackles (474) over the last 3 season.

San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman's (knee) surgery may be delayed 2 to 3 weeks before doctors can repair his anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh said Bowman is facing a 'grueling rehab.' The Niners are hoping he'll be ready for the start of the 2014 season, but there is no way of knowing now.
Huddle Up: IDP league owners obviously will need to follow Bowman's progress over the offseason.

San Francisco LB Navarro Bowman reportedly suffered a torn ACL in the NFC
Championship Game on Sunday, Jan.19.
Huddle Up: It was doubly tough way to end the season for Bowman, the Pro Bowl inside LB
who recorded a career-high 166 total tackles this year. With the injury happening
so late, expect Bowman to miss some time early in the 2014 season.
