49ers LB Bowman returns to practice


The Sports Xchange

Pro Bowl linebacker NaVorro Bowman practiced with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday — his first action with the team since he suffered a gruesome knee injury in the NFC Championship Game in January 2014.

“I’m out there,” Bowman said. “I’m putting my jersey on just like everyone else and doing as much as I can do and that my knee allows me to do.

“I’m passing all the tests. My knee is still stable and holding up the way they expected. Just continue to work through the little bit of aches that I have, but it’s going to be there for at least another year and I just have to figure out how to deal with it.”

Bowman did not practice or play last season as he rehabilitated the left knee that incurred tears of the ACL and MCL in the 49ers’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII.
