REPORT: MRI SHOWS NAVORRO BOWMAN SUFFERED TORN ACL, MCL - An MRI has revealed that San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman tore the anterior and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee Sunday during the 49ers 23-17 loss at Seattle in the NFC Championship game, ProFootballTalk.com reports.A torn ACL was the preliminary report coach Jim Harbaugh gave after the game. Bowman hasn’t commented yet about his injury. He was seen briefly Monday walking on crutches to an awaiting car at the team facility, while the 49ers held their final team meeting, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.If Bowman needs support as he recovers this offseason, cornerback Chris Culliver knows first-hand the challenges ahead that await the 49ers’ star linebacker. “I’ll be there every step of the way and help him out in anything he needs,” Culliver, who missed this season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in training camp, said via the Chronicle.Safety Eric Reid said Bowman was “surprisingly optimistic” on Sunday night’s flight home. “He sacrificed his body for this team,” Reid said. “He’s our leader and arguably the best player that we have. To see him go down, it hurts.”Bowman won the team’s most prestigious honor, the Len Eschmont Award, while making a team-high 192 tackles and career-high five sacks in the regular season. He also repeated on the AP All-Pro and NFC Pro Bowl teams. (Photo: Elaine Thompson/Associated Press)
