Bowman's playing time at Houston on Saturday will be his first since suffering a serious knee injury in the 2014 NFC Championship game
After passing his conditioning test Friday,
Bowman missed the entire 2014 season after a season-ending knee injury in the 2013 NFC Championship game. He is expected to participate in the first training camp practice Saturday and is eager to make his first hit.
"That's probably the only mental thing," Bowman said. "If I deliver the hit I want to deliver, once I do that, I'll be ready."
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.
