The season has come to an end for 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman.
The 49ers announced today that Bowman suffered a season-ending Achilles injury in Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys.
That’s what it looked like at the time, as Bowman went to the ground without being contacted and immediately grabbed the back of his ankle. Tests today confirmed the worst.
Bowman has had to work his way back from a serious injury before: In the NFC Championship Game after the 2014 season, Bowman suffered a gruesome knee injury.
Now the 49ers will hope that the 28-year-old Bowman can recover again and come back in 2017.
