49ers’ NaVorro Bowman Suffers Nasty Leg Break During NFC Championship (GIF)
The San Francisco 49ers lost more than the NFC title to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. They also lost linebacker NaVorro Bowman, who would have been more than likely done for the season even if the 49ers had managed to clinch a victory against the Seahawks.
Unfortunately for the 49ers, that didn’t happen, and unfortunately for Bowman, his leg was broken in a very-hard-to-watch fashion (if you’re going to get injured, it’s always best if it’s in a way that people don’t gasp in horror while watching). On the Theismann scale, this probably clocks in somewhere between a 7 or an 8, but bear in mind that I’m not an officially licensed Theismologist.
If you’re interested in getting a more accurate reading, or if you’re just one of those people who can’t resist looking at disgusting football injury GIFs, you can take a look at NaVorro Bowman’s injury from Sunday’s game below. According to preliminary reports, Bowman’s injury is probably a torn ACL. As always with these kinds of things, hopefully it looks worse than it actually is, although I’m not sure that’s actually possible in this case.
Here’s the GIF (and this is your final warning, it’s a nasty one):
