Bowman (shoulder) finished the season strong with nine tackles (all solo) in Sunday's overtime win over St. Louis. There was some concern heading into the season surrounding the health of Bowman and whether he would be able to bounced back from the horrific knee injury that held him out for the entirety of the 2014 season. He put those worries to rest in 2015, setting a new career-high in tackles (154) while also leading the entire league in that category as well. Bowman is under contract through the 2019 season, so he will continue to be the centerpiece in a San Francisco defense that will need more reinforcements this offseason. As long as he is healthy, he should be treated as one of the premier IDP options next season.
Bowman (shoulder/finger) wrapped up 10 tackles (eight solo) and also recorded a half sack in Sunday's loss to the Lions. A week after being named to the Pro Bowl, Bowman showed why he deserved that honor with another double-digit tackle performance. With 145 combined tackles on the year, he has been one of the better IDP players in 2015. The 49ers close out the season at home against the Rams next week, and Bowman should be busy against a Todd Gurley-led running attack.
Bowman (shoulder/finger) is listed as active Sunday at Detroit. After the 2014 season was wiped out due to ACL and MCL tears in his left knee, Bowman has resumed his status as one of the NFL's tackle machines, sitting one tackle out of the league lead through Week 15. He's powered the resurgence with six outings with double-digit stops, including 30 (23 solo) over the last three contests.
Bowman (shoulder/finger) bounced back after last week's five-tackle day with a dominant 12-tackle (eight solo) performance in the loss to the Bengals. The Bengals ran the ball 36 times Sunday, and Bowman was a big reason why they averaged under two yards a carry. While it didn't result in his team winning, he reestablished his presence as one of the top IDP options. With the 49ers having no rhythm on offense, opposing teams are likely to feature their run games after going up early, leaving plenty of tackles to be had by Bowman and company. Barring injury, he should finish in the top-5 for tackles in the NFL.
Bowman (shoulder/finger) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Bengals, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game San Francisco reports. Bowman posted his second-fewest tackles (five) of the season last Sunday, yet he still ranks third among all defenders in the NFL. With fellow tackle machine Michael Wilhoite (ankle) out of commission, Bowman may notch the sixth outing with double-digit stops of the current campaign.
