Aldon Smith activated by 49ers from NFI list
Smith has been away from the team since their Week 3 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He was in rehab receiving treatment following a DUI arrest on the Friday morning before the Week 3 game against Indy. During the DUI arrest, Smith was found to have marijuana in his possession in addition to being drunk.
49ers GM Trent Baalke said last week that the team hoped to have Smith back after the bye week. They are currently on their bye after beating the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Sunday. They return to the field on Nov. 10 at home against the Carolina Panthers. He will have missed a month and a half of action while receiving treatment.
