    49ers LB NaVorro Bowman totals eight tackles Week 4

    49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Packers.Bowman has been fairly vanilla in 2015, failing to reach double-digit tackles in a single game this season. On a positive note, he didn't appear to be limited by the minor knee injury suffered last week.Bowman isn't playing at the level we were used to prior to his gruesome knee injury in the 2013 NFC Championship, but owners have to give him a bit more leash in case he is simply shaking off the rust.

    49ers' NaVorro Bowman leads team with nine tackles Sunday

    49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman (knee) led all San Francisco defenders with nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 47-7 loss to the Cardinals. Bowman tweaked his surgically repaired knee Sunday, but he was able to stay in the game and stated that his knee was fine after the contest. He missed the entire 2014 season with an ACL tear, so any setback with his knee is an obvious concern. What may be more concerning for his owners is the face that he has yet to record double-digit tackles or a sack this season. The 49ers' have been blown out these past two weeks, so there hasn't been a whole lot of tackling going on with anyone on this team, but expect Bowman to end up near the top of their total tackle list as long as his knee holds up.

    49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman collects four tackles Sunday

    49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman was limited to just four tackles (none solo) in Sunday's blowout loss to the Steelers. A poor IDP showing from Bowman, who had a promising week 1 against the Vikings. While he didn't look as explosive Sunday, the main reason for his lack of stats was an aerial assault by Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and company. Next week's opponents - the Arizona Cardinals - should have a slightly more balanced attack, but they have shown early in the year that they are not afraid to air it out either. This could be another game where the opposition avoids Bowman in the middle of the field and airs it out to test the 49ers' inexperienced corners.
