Garvin brings depth to a 49ers linebacker corps currently missing Reuben Foster (suspension) and Dekoda Watson (hamstring), and with Malcolm Smith (hamstring) considered questionable. The former Dolphin is expected to serve as a reserve option behind starter Mark Nzeocha, and remains a longshot for IDP relevance.
Garvin appeared in 15 games for Seattle in 2017 -- starting three of them -- and ultimately played a career-high 198 defensive snaps, which he translated into 25 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. He'll need to carve out a more significant role with the Dolphins in order to attain IDP relevance, however.
Garvin will not return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to a concussion, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Garvin will enter the league-mandated concussion protocol and must clear the five necessary stages before return to game action. The Seahawks are still fighting for a potential playoff berth against the Cardinals on Sunday, but Garvin would have plenty of time to recuperate from the head injury if the teams fails to qualify.
