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.
Garvin (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans.
After missing Week 2, Garvin will return to his starting role at outside linebacker. The 26-year-old recorded three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Week 1, and he'll have to battle against a strong offensive line in Tennessee.
