49ers put Bowman on reserve/PUP list

 

The Sports Network

Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman was officially placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list by the San Francisco 49ers as the team pared down its active roster to 75 players on Monday.

Bowman is recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee sustained during San Francisco's loss to Seattle in the NFC Championship Game back in January. By beginning the regular season on the PUP list, the two-time Pro Bowl selection will have to miss at least the first six games before being eligible to be activated.

Tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey were also moved to reserve/PUP, with running back Marcus Lattimore one of four 49ers sent to the reserve/non-football injury list.

Lattimore, a fourth-round selection of San Francisco in the 2013 draft, has yet to play in an NFL game due to a devastating injury to his right knee that occurred during his college career at South Carolina in October of 2012. The 22-year-old spent his entire rookie season on the NFI list.

Additionally, the 49ers released wide receiver/kick returner David Reed and waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punter Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie.

    INDIANAPOLIS - The prettiest pass that Nick Foles threw Monday night traveled in a perfect arc from his right hand to the left corner of the end zone, and although Riley Cooper had Colts defensive back Vontae Davis at his hip, the football still descended into Cooper's hands as if a parachute were attached to it.

FILE - In this February 2014 file photo, from a still image taken from a hotel security video released by TMZ Sports, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice drags his fiancee, Janay Palmer, out of an elevator moments after knocking her off her feet, against the elevator's railing at the Revel casino in Atlantic City, N.J. A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive five months ago, while league officers have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week. The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."

    Program that accepted Rice rare in domestic cases

    The offender-rehabilitation program former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice was allowed into after knocking his fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator is rarely used in domestic assault cases — but whether that means he got special treatment because of his stardom remains up in the air, depending on whom you ask.
