NaVorro Bowman's injury was gruesome on replay, his knee being bent the opposite way while holding onto a ball officials would later rule not in his possession.
And on Monday, what was feared became reality. The 49ers linebacker tore his ACL and MCL on the play.
With the injury occurring in mid-January, his status could be in doubt when the 2014 NFL season is set to start this coming fall.
However, a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter indicates the 49ers are expecting him to be ready by the season-opener.
