San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman was a full participant during the team's minicamp practice today, per the San Francisco Chronicle.



"Bowman, 28, showed no obvious limitations from the injury during the high-speed session," wrote Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

"Bowman roamed the non-contact session looking for the ball and nimbly racing to it," wrote Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group.

With the 2017 NFL Draft just a day away, Bowman's return is huge for the 49ers. The team would love to have a healthy Bowman available for the start of the season and address other positions in the draft. Bowman, the heart of the 49ers defense, suffered a torn Achilles during an October 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He was placed on the injured reserve list four days later.

Through the first four games of the season, Bowman had 35 tackles, a sack, an interception, a forced fumble, and two passes defended. In 2015, he was in on 1,126 defensive snaps. 627 of those were against the pass while 499 were against the run. During that time, Bowman compiled 154 tackles – which led the league – 2.5 sacks, and two passes defended.
