49ers | Aldon Smith not making excuses

San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith (shoulder) said last year's shoulder injury, which required offseason surgery, played a big role in him going the final six games (including the postseason) without a sack. "I'm not a man of excuses, but being hurt doesn't make anything easy," Smith said Sunday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is healthy and focused heading into this season, and is working to improve his footwork, technique and coverage. He wants to make another run at the NFL single season sack record. That's music to the ears of potential fantasy owners in leagues which use individual defensive players (IDP leagues).
