49ers | Aldon Smith faces suspension
Tue, 24 Sep 2013 09:42:39 -0700
San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith faces an automatic two-game suspension if he is convicted on suspicion of driving under the influence. Smith has checked himself into a rehab facility and is expected to miss at least a month of the season, if not longer. "The only timetable on this is him getting well," a source said. "I know football fans don't care about this, but he's 23 years old and he has a full life beyond football. How he recovers from this can literally be the difference between life and death."
Smith won't return to the 49ers anytime soon, it looks like. Drop him in your IDP leagues but keep him on your radar if he returns later this season.
