Bowman (shoulder) had a relatively quiet game by his standards, recording nine tackles (four solo) in the 29-13 loss to the Seahawks. Bowman continues to pop up on the injury report for a minor shoulder injury, but it didn't seem to affect the veteran linebacker as he was on the field for all 78 of the team's defensive snaps. With the opposition running the ball 44 times, you would think Bowman would have notched more than nine tackles, but Thomas Rawls was getting into the secondary consistently which did not benefit Bowman. A matchup against the Cardinals' potent air attack looms next week, so the tackle totals could be held in check for Bowman yet again.
Bowman (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game at Seattle, Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News reports. With the third-most tackles in the NFL with 88, Bowman is a must-start in IDP circles, especially against a Seahawks defense that may attempt to control the clock, despite an inactive Marshawn Lynch (abdomen).
Bowman (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Bowman's status was never really in question, with his Wednesday absence from practice largely maintenance-related. His team may not be playing for anything besides pride, but Bowman has still re-established himself as an elite player, and he has a real shot to lead the NFL in tackles.
Bowman (shoulder) returned to practice as a full participant Thursday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Bowman has regularly missed Wednesday practices throughout the season, and while he may be a bit nicked up, there's no reason to think he's in real danger of missing Sunday's game in Seattle. He has seven or more tackles in eight of his nine appearances this season.
Bowman (shoulder) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game San Francisco reports. The practice routine followed by Bowman in the two games before the 49ers' bye week have extended to the second half of the season. If he doesn't return on a limited basis Thursday, some worry could set in regarding the NFL's second-leading tackler. However, an appearance would all but clear him for Sunday's game at Seattle.
