Six players were absent from the 49ers' OTA practice on Thursday, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
Those not present were wide receiver
OTA practices are voluntary and players are not required to attend.
"Bowman is looking great," coach Jim Tomsula said, per 49ers.com. "I’d say we’re treating Bow more like a vet than a post-injury vet."
“I’m passing all the tests,” Bowman said Wednesday, midway through a voluntary minicamp, per the San Jose Mercury News. “My knee is still stable and holding up the way they expect it.
“I continue to work through the little aches I have, but that’s going to be there for at least another year, and I’ve got to figure out a way to deal with it.”
In 2013, Bowman totaled 120 tackles, five sacks and two interceptions.
"When we can get on the field, Bow is going out on the field," Tomsula said, per the Bay Area News Group. "I haven't gotten into the specifics on how much. Obviously we're not going to throw somebody out there and go 100 reps. My understanding is, yes, he's moving great."
Bowman missed the entire 2014 season after he suffered a torn ACL in the NFC Championship game against Seattle during the 2013 season.
