NaVorro Bowman a full participant in minicamp practice

Apr 26, 2017 at 2:41 PM--


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.

NFL teams are allowed to sign players to their practice squads starting Sunday at 10 a.m. PT. This is following the 9 a.m. PT deadline to claim a player off of waivers. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NFL is allowing each team to carry up to six players with an unlimited amount of NFL experience. Each week during the regular season, teams can protect up to four practice squad players, preventing other teams from signing them to an active roster. The remaining practice squad players can be claimed by any NFL team but must be placed on that team's active 53-player roster. Teams can elevate a practice squad player to the active roster up to 90 minutes before kickoff. Below is a list of players who the 49ers are reportedly signing to their

Johnathan Cyprien has a change of heart, is among 16 players to sign with 49ers practice squad

By David Bonilla

It would appear that safety Johnathan Cyprien had a change of heart. He was among the 16 players signed to the San Francisco 49ers practice squad on Sunday. Cyprien was asked during training camp if he would consider signing to a practice squad, should he not make the 53-man roster. "To be honest with you, no," he responded. "I wouldn't be on the practice squad." Maybe Kyle Shanahan was able to convince Cyprien to reconsider. The 49ers head coach was asked about the safety's comments shortly after they were made. "I think one of the hard things with practice squad is the stigma of what those words are, practice squad," Shanahan said. "Practice squad to me is that sometimes it's one injury away from playing.
