According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the 49ers are working to linebacker Aldon Smith to get him help for his problem with drugs and alcohol. The hope is to get him into rehab soon.
49ers are working with Aldon on this totally independent of league punishment. There is genuine concern. It’s up to Aldon to decide this week if he goes or not.
Aldon Smith could enter rehab as early as this week. Those close to him and team are concerned about him and are pushing for it in order for him to get help. Has already been discussed.
It’s obvious that Smith has been living a reckless life with his previous run ins with the law regarding his involvement with guns, drugs and alcohol.
