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 will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injured left Achilles, CSN Bay Area reports.

Bowman (leg) may have a torn Achilles, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Bowman suffered a non-contact injury during Sunday's game against the Cowboys, and he wasn't able to put any weight on his injured leg. A torn Achilles would rule him out for the rest of the season, which would be a massive blow to both IDP owners and the San Francisco defense. Bowman previously missed the entire 2014 season after tearing an ACL in the 2013 playoffs, but he returned last year and was one of the few standouts on a poor 49ers defense.
