Bowman (Achilles) is making good progress through his rehab but still doesn't have a timetable set for his return to full activity, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports. Bowman is currently working his way back from a torn left Achilles suffered in Week 4 against the Cowboys. That setback came after he suffered a horrible left knee injury during the 2014 NFL Championship, giving Bowman perspective for his rehab. According to the 28-year-old, his latest injury hurdle is far easier to approach than his knee rehab was, and although he's yet to receive a timetable, Bowman is confident he'll be back performing at a high level once healthy.
Bowman (Achilles) has reached the point in his rehab where he's running in a pool, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports. Bowman has spent the last three months recovering from a torn left Achilles, but a lengthy road awaits to be traveled. The 49ers aren't obligated to update his status with regularity, meaning the general public may not learn much about his progress until the offseason program commences in April, with OTAs and minicamp to follow in May and June.
Bowman had surgery done on his torn Achilles this week, Cam Inman of the Mercury News reports. After successful surgery on his torn left Achilles, Bowman will begin the rehab process and work towards a possible 2017 return to the field. The injury was a big blow to those who owned him in IDP leagues, as he was already on pace to match his league-leading tackle mark he set last season. The All-Pro linebacker bounced back from the gruesome knee injury he sustained in the 2013 playoffs and didn't skip a beat, so fantasy owners and fans of football alike are hoping that he can make a similar recovery when he returns to the gridiron.
The 49ers placed Bowman (Achilles) on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The tackle machine had already notched 35 stops upon suffering a torn left Achilles last Sunday against the Cowboys. As a corresponding move, the 49ers have activated the previously suspended Aaron Lynch, an outside linebacker. Filling the void on the inside for Bowman will be Nick Bellore.
Bowman will miss the remainder of this season after suffering an Achilles injury Sunday against the Cowboys. Bowman's injury is a crushing blow to the 49ers' defense, as he led the league with 154 tackles and was signed to an extension through the 2022 season just two months ago. After suffering a horrible left knee injury that prevented him from playing during the 2014 campaign, Bowman will now have to rehab a ruptured left Achilles, CSN Bay Area reports. With him sidelined for the rest of this year, Michael Wilhoite figures to occupy an expanded role alongside Gerald Hodges at inside linebacker.
