Will Aldon Smith play soon?
After five games away from the San Francisco 49ers, Aldon Smith has been activated off the nonfootball injury list. Smith was released this week from an alcohol treatment center, where he went three days after an arrest on suspicion of drunken driving. The 49ers did not say the linebacker will play in San Francisco's next game, Nov. 10 vs. Carolina. But some expect Smith to play this season, even if the league chooses to suspend him.
