Bowman seems to be progressing well in his return from an ACL tear, claiming that he is "back in playmaking mode" after Friday's OTAs.

Bowman made an interception in the back of the endzone during Friday's OTA session and seems well on his way to returning to All-Pro form. He did mention that he doesn't enjoy playing with a knee brace, as it limits his mobility, but he understands that it is there to protect his knee. The 49ers are hoping that Bowman can return to his former self after losing two starters at middle linebacker this offseason.

Bowman (knee) resumed practicing Tuesday during the 49ers' minicamp, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

It's the first time Bowman has been able to take the field since suffering a gruesome ACL tear during the NFC Championship Game in January 2014. Despite missing the entire past season, Bowman is still viewed as the 49ers' anchor in the middle following the offseason retirements of Patrick Willis and Chris Borland, though it remains to be seen if the 26-year-old can rediscover his pre-injury form. He was exceptionally productive during his last full season in 2013, recording a career-high 145 tackles and two interceptions over 16 games.

Bowman is expected to be ready for on-field team activities at the end of April, CSN Bay Area reports.

Bowman spent the entire 2014 season rehabbing from a gruesome knee injury in the 2013 NFC Championship game, but it appears as though he is finally ready to make his comeback to the field. Coach Jim Tomsula said that he expects Bowman to participate in 49ers' mini-camp at the end of the month. With both Patrick Willis and Chris Borland retiring this offseason, Bowman will be asked to be the team's defensive leader from the middle linebacker position this season.

Bowman (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Bowman's gruesome knee injury from last year's NFC Championship game ended up costing him the entirety of 2014. He will hopefully be at 100 percent health well in advance of next year. His absence means that Chris Borland might be the top IDP option at linebacker until the year's conclusion.
