NaVorro Bowman (shoulder) led the team with eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
Bowman didn't reach double-digit tackles, but he still led all San Francisco defenders against a tough and diverse offense. He came into the matchup with a "probable" designation, and he will likely do the same for next week's matchup against Chicago. With Matt Forte (ankle) back in the lineup, the Bears may feature a more balanced attack next week, which would increase Bowman's chances of putting up a big game.
NaVorro Bowman (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday versus the Cardinals.
Sitting in a tie for second with 97 tackles this season, Bowman must be utilized on a weekly basis. However, the Cardinals' diverse offense may not afford Bowman a typical amount of opportunities.
Bowman continues to pop up on the injury report for a minor shoulder injury, but it didn't seem to affect the veteran linebacker, as he was on the field for all 78 of the team's defensive snaps. With the opposition running the ball 44 times, you would think Bowman would have notched more than nine tackles, but Thomas Rawls was getting into the secondary consistently, which didn't benefit Bowman. A matchup against the Cardinals' potent air attack looms next week, so the tackle totals could be held in check for Bowman yet again.
NaVorro Bowman (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
Bowman's status was never really in question, with his Wednesday absence from practice largely maintenance-related. His team may not be playing for anything besides pride, but Bowman has still re-established himself as an elite player, and he has a real shot to lead the NFL in tackles.
NaVorro Bowman (shoulder) returned to practice as a full participant Thursday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Bowman has regularly missed Wednesday practices throughout the season, and while he may be a bit nicked up, there's no reason to think he's in real danger of missing Sunday's game in Seattle. He has seven or more tackles in eight of his nine appearances this season.
