San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Green Bay 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.
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.
Bowman took a veteran rest day Wednesday, which he followed with unhindered showings in practice both Thursday and Friday. Through two contests, he's accrued 11 tackles (seven solo) and one sack.
Bowman's playing time at Houston on Saturday will be his first since suffering a serious knee injury in the 2014 NFC Championship game
