San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said the team still has LB Aldon Smith in their long-term plans. Smith will miss his fifth straight game in Week 8 after checking himself into in-patient treatment for substance abuse. He's signed through the 2014 season, and the team can start to negotiate a long-term extension with him after this season. Baalke and head coach Jim Harbaugh are both hopeful that Smith will return this season. "There's no timeline on it," Baalke said. "We would expect to be meeting with him in the near future, but that can change."
