San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman hasn’t played a snap of football since Oct. 2. That day, he suffered a torn Achilles that cost him the rest of the season.
Bowman has unfortunately grown accustomed to missing large chunks of time, but those absences haven’t killed Bowman’s desire to play. In fact, they’ve only strengthened his resolve to get back better than before.

“I believe he’s going to be Cheap Jerseys cleared when we get going on the field,” coach Kyle Shanahan said. “I know that’s something him and [head athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson] are still working out. Right now, he was in the weight room doing the testing and stuff.

“It was good,” Bowman said. “We took it slow. In the last month, started ramping it up, doing a bit more things, jumping around, it’s been great, there’s been no setbacks or anything, just looking forward to getting back out there and showing what I have.”
Upon his return, Bowman will be Customized Jerseys jumping into a 4-3 defensive scheme under new coordinator Robert Saleh.

The goal will then be to get back to the elite level of play he’s known for.
“I was telling the guys today, I’m hungry,” Bowman said. “I’ve been out of the game since Week 4 so any accomplishment that I had before, none of that San Francisco 49ers Jerseys matters. I really want to get back to prove myself and get back to that level and guys were saying ‘What are you on? How are you moving like this so early?’ So I’ll put the work in and I think God will bless me with a great season this year.”
