Bowman led the Raiders in tackles with 11 (seven solo) during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Bowman has now led the Raiders in tackles through his first two games with the team since signing a one-year deal in mid-October. He remains solidified as Oakland's starting middle linebacker heading into a Week 9 matchup on the road against the Dolphins, who expect quarterback Jay Cutler to return from his rib injury.

Bowman logged 11 tackles (six solo) during Thursday's win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Bowman led the Raiders in tackles during his debut with the team after signing a one-year deal earlier in the week, solidifying his role as a starter in Oakland. He played 60 of 62 defensive snaps and should play a similar role in Week 8 against the Bills.

Bowman is in line to start Thursday night against the Chiefs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bowman, who previously logged 38 tackles in five games for the 49ers this season, has been brought up to speed quickly by Oakland's coaches and is evidently ready for a key role with his new team. Once it's established that he's in store for a steady workload in the Raiders defense, Bowman has a chance to re-emerge as a lineup option in IDP formats.

Bowman is expected to play in Thursday's game against Kansas City, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Just days after signing with Oakland, the veteran linebacker figures to take the field. It's reasonable to assume he doesn't have the entire defensive playbook memorized which could suggest he won't be an every down asset at least until he becomes more familiar with Oakland's system.

Bowman is signing a one-year deal with the Raiders, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by the 49ers on Friday, the 29-year-old linebacker will stay in the Bay Area to join an Oakland team with a clear need at his position. It's probably a best-case scenario for his potential to retain IDP value, but there's no guarantee Bowman will handle a three-down role. He shouldn't be deployed in lineups until his role is clarified.

The 49ers released Bowman on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The 49ers reportedly wanted to trade Bowman but likely discovered that no team was willing to take on his contract. With rookie first-round pick Reuben Foster (ankle) slated for a three-down role and the 29-year-old Bowman past his prime, it makes sense for the rebuilding Niners to save some cap room that can be rolled over to future seasons. Bowman now has the chance to play for a contender, though he may have to settle for a limited role that ends his tenure as a useful IDP option.

The 49ers are shopping Bowman, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bowman was arguably the league's best inside linebacker at his peak, and while he's piled up 38 tackles in five games this season, the 49ers might limit him to an early down role once 2017 first-round pick Reuben Foster (ankle) is available. Even if a trade comes to fruition, Bowman's days as a top IDP option likely are numbered. A trade would make a lot of sense for a rebuilding Niners team, though Bowman's sizable contract could make it tough to work something out.

Bowman did not practice Wednesday but it was not injury related, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was just a rest day for Bowman, which is good news after sustaining a stinger during Sunday's loss to the Colts. The veteran middle linebacker looks to be all clear for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Bowman sustained a stinger in Sunday's overtime loss to the Colts, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bowman saw a more limited workload Sunday, partially due to the stinger and head coach Kyle Shanahan also indicated there was a plan to provide him more rest throughout the game. The veteran linebacker never received an in-game injury designation and will likely be okay for next week's matchup with the Redskins.
