NaVorro Bowman chat wrap

Here are some highlights from the ESPN.com chat with San Francisco 49ers star inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman, which was held earlier Thursday:

Arnold from Texas: Thought you had an amazing season and looking forward to 2014. How is your knee doing? Do you think you have a chance to play at the start of the season?

NaVorro Bowman: The knee is doing great. I'm blessed to be walking. I think the first game of the season is out of the picture.

GreggisKhan from South Bend: You were ascending to the top LB in the game before your injury. How confident are you that you can get back to that level mentally and physically?

NB: Very confident.

Ed from Queens Village: What was feeling like scoring last TD in Candlestick history on MNF? What did you do with that football you scored for TD?

NB: It felt good. I covered my tail, because I missed the onsides kick right before that. I still have the ball.
