“>per Adam Schefter. Tough break for Bowman and the 49ers.

If you didn’t witness the injury on television, Bowman made a play on a ball carrier to rip out the football and force a fumble near the goal line. While he was reaching to pick up the football, he had his knee rolled up on and it was scary looking. They really didn’t have to instant replay it so often.

Bowman had to be taken off the field on a cart (where some Seahawks fan decided to throw some popcorn at him) and miss the rest of the game. Tough break for Bowman.
