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.

49ers-Saints: Still no sign of Deebo Samuel at practice, Kendrick Bourne returns

Reporters did not see San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during today's practice, which is the last of this week before the team boards a plane bound for New Orleans. That means the second-year wideout did not practice at all this week, making his availability for Sunday's game against the Saints very unlikely. Samuel is attempting to return from a hamstring injury suffered during the 49ers' Week 7 win over the New England Patriots. General manager John Lynch had hoped Samuel might be able to get onto the practice field today but noted that his availability for this weekend remained a long shot. "I think the final challenge or opportunity for Deebo to show that he can go is out here on Friday,"
