Maiocco speculates that there's no timetable for Bowman's return just yet. The 49ers linebacker injured his knee in the team's NFC Championship game loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

"It's possible - but certainly not guaranteed - that he could be available for the start of the regular season," Maiocco wrote.
