The San Francisco 49ers will officially be without two of their most valued defensive players for the remainder of the 2014 NFL season.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter (per an official team release), the 49ers have placed linebacker NaVorro Bowman and defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey on season-ending injured reserve:

Bowman (knee) was selected First-Team NFL All-Pro in 2011, 2012 and 2013, as well as having made the NFL Pro Bowl following the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Dorsey (biceps) appeared in all 16 games (13 starts) and three postseason contests for San Francisco during the 2013 season, posting a career-high 100 tackles and two sacks.
In two corresponding moves on Saturday, the San Francisco 49ers promoted cornerback Marcus Cromartie and guard Andrew Tiller to the active 53-man roster from the team’s practice squad.
