49ers Rumors: San Francisco "Very Confident" In NaVarro Bowman's Health

San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVarro Bowman is still recovering from a torn ACL and MCL he suffered in the 2013 NFC Championship Game, and the team is confident he'll be ready to go in 2015.

Head coach Jim Tomsula said Bowman has been in the 49ers facility rehabbing his knee every day, and all signs point to him making a positive recovery.

"I'm not a doctor, I'm not going to tell you I know exactly where he's at and all that," Tomsula said. "I know his rehab is going real well, and all the information I have is extremely positive from doctors, trainers and Bow."

“We’re very confident with where he’s at with his recovery," echoed San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. “I think he feels good. He’s really starting to feel like it’s coming back to where he wants it. And that’s always the most important thing. ... I've said this before, there's the physical response to coming back to an injury, and then there's the psychological. Sometimes they don't coincide with one another. Sometimes physically you're ready, but psychologically you're not. But I think he's in a real good place right now."

The unexpected retirements of Patrick Willis and Chris Borland have depleted San Francisco's linebacker depth, increasing the need for Bowman to return healthy this year.
