Draft Scout *Aldon Smith News
01/10/14 - OLB Aldon Smith briefly left Sunday's game after experiencing cramps, but returned to action. He had finished the day with 1.5 sacks and two hits on Rodgers.
Smith, who missed five weeks in the middle of the season while attending a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, appears at mid-season form after taking time to re-acclimate himself physically. Week 10's game against the Panthers was his first game back and he played just 12 snaps.
"He's probably not as worn as some of the other guys. But, he's playing good. And we're thrilled to have him back," Fangio said. "He played very well in that game against Green Bay and we need to have him play good this week also."
12/17/13 - LB Aldon Smith had two sacks against Tampa Bay, which was the 12th time the third-year player has done that.
11/27/13 - LB Aldon Smith (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday. He is expected to play against the Rams.
10/22/13 - LB Aldon Smith could return to the 49ers at some point this season; something that has appeared to be in jeopardy at times since he left the team to enter a substance-abuse treatment facility. The 49ers are expected to meet with Smith during the bye week following their trip to London this week, according to CSNBayArea.com. "I hear things are going very well," coach Jim Harbaugh said of Smith's rehab.
10/13/13 - The San Francisco 49ers are not depending on linebacker Aldon Smith to come back to the team this season, according to ESPN.
Smith is on indefinite leave from the team because he is receiving treatment for substance abuse at an in-patient rehabilitation facility after a DUI arrest in September.
He is also facing three felony charges of possessing illegal assault weapons stemming from a 2012 party at his home.
The 49ers believe Smith has a significant amount of work to do to turn his life around before returning to the football field. The team hopes the 24-year-old will benefit from the help he is receiving so that he can salvage his life and career.
