Golden Nuggets: Bowman Ahead of Schedule

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Monday, April 7, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

We all know NaVorro Bowman as a tough warrior and an elite athlete. That's why it's no suprise that just 2 months after he tore both the ACL and MCL in his right knee, he is already going around without crutches. It's clear his desire is to miss zero games this upcoming season, but of course, it is highly doubtful the team will allow him to play at the start of the season, because there is solid depth at the ILB position and they have multiple years invested in him. Still it would be amazing to see him on the field and performing at his own elite level earlier rather than later. Adrian Peterson set a high bar last year with his comeback, and it's nice to see Bowman use the same trainer Peterson used. Clearly he has the same goal of returning just as strong as Peterson did.
