49ers hurt from serious injury to NaVorro Bowman
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - San Francisco linebackers coach Jim Leavitt says he remains optimistic that NaVorro Bowman will be playing when the 49ers open new Levi's Stadium next season.
Coach Jim Harbaugh said after Sunday's NFC championship game that the All-Pro linebacker is believed to have a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. There was no word Monday on potential surgery.
Left guard Mike Iupati also broke his left ankle in the 23-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He says he doesn't know whether he will need surgery but is scheduled to be further evaluated Tuesday.
