Bowman (Achilles) returned to the field for Wednesday's minicamp workout and ran without any extra support on his reconstructed knee, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports. "Guys are saying, 'What are you on? How are you moving like this so early?' I've put the work in and I thought God will bless me with a great season this year," Bowman said.

Bowman appears to have healed up from the torn Achilles he sustained last October remarkably fast. According to the report, Bowman looked "nimble" on the practice field Wednesday, but the 49ers still figure to exercise caution with the linebacker throughout the team's offseason activities. As the heart of a talent-deficient 49ers defense, Bowman could post huge tackle numbers in 2017 if he can stay out of the trainer's room.
