SANTA CLARA – The 49ers made the expected move to place All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman on the physically-unable-to-perform list upon reporting to training camp on Wednesday.
Bowman underwent surgery on Feb. 4 to repair a torn ACL he sustained in the NFC Championship game Jan. 19 against the Seattle Seahawks. Players who open camp on PUP are eligible to activated at any point in training camp.
However, Bowman is expected to open the regular season on PUP, which would make him ineligible to participate in the first six games of the season.
Wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who sat out most of the offseason program with a hamstring strain, passed his conditioning test Wednesday and was cleared to begin practicing on Thursday, he said.
Here’s a list of 49ers players who are current on the physically-unable-to-perform or non-football injury lists.
Physically unable to perform – LB NaVorro Bowman (knee), NT Ian Williams (lower leg), LB Aaron Lynch (hamstring), Kaleb Ramsey (NA).
Non-football injury – RB Marcus Lattimore (knee/hamstring), WR Bruce Ellington (NA), C Marcus Martin (NA), FB Trey Millard (knee), CB Keith Reaser (knee) and G Brandon Thomas (knee).
