With a banged up secondary and a returning to full strength linebacker corps, the 49ers released LB Terence Garvin and promoted DB Tyvis Powell from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday. The Niners got LBs Reuben Foster (suspension) and Malcolm Smith (hamstring) back in the fold, making Garvin expendable.

49ers LB Reuben Foster is officially back with the team after his two-game suspension. Foster was activated to the roster on Wednesday and participating in practice. The team released OL Matt Tobin to make room for Foster's return. Kyle Shanahan has said he's still unsure who will start at the two inside linebacker spots this week against KC but a Foster and Fred Warner pairing still seems to make the most sense.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan on the team's interest in WR Josh Gordon, who was traded to the Patriots on Monday: "Any time a good player becomes available on the open market, you look into all that stuff," Shanahan said. "By no means is it something you ever want to get desperate for. Like I said last night, I feel very good with the guys on our team but that's something that we looked into. Obviously, it went a different way... (The Patriots) did more than we did."
