NaVorro Bowman Attends Day 1 of 49ers Workouts

Posted Apr 21, 2014

San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman was one of many noticeable participants in the team's opening day of voluntary offseason workouts.


NaVorro Bowman continues on his road to recovery.

The San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker has been rehabbing his surgically-repaired left knee and decided to join his teammates on Monday for the start of the team's voluntary offseason strength and conditioning program.

Bowman, who suffered a torn ACL in the team's NFC Championship game loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Jan. 19, only took part in upper-body weight lifting during the opening workouts.

Even so, Bowman joined fellow starting linebacker Patrick Willis in the weight-room portion of the training session led by the 49ers strength and conditioning staff.

Earlier this offseason, Jim Harbaugh said that Bowman is expected to be ready by the middle-to-late stages of the 2014 regular season.

"I’m not really thinking about practice or anything," Bowman recently told the San Jose Mercury News. "I’m happy to be walking and happy to be able to play again.”

On the same day Bowman worked out at team headquarters, the 49ers also announced that third-year linebacker Michael Wilhoite signed his exlcusive rights tender. Wilhoite will compete with second-year linebacker Nick Moody to start next to Willis.
