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.

Bowman went down with a non-contact injury during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Afterward, he was seen in the 49ers' locker room wearing a boot on his left foot. The All-Pro linebacker is feared to have suffered a torn Achilles tendon, but Monday's testing will clarify his situation and upcoming availability.
