Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reported that 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will likely be suspended for San Francisco’s season-opener. He also mentioned that Smith likely won’t face any jail time.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Smith likely won’t receive jail time at his sentencing, if he can stay out of trouble over the next month. However, regardless of whether he receives simply an order of probation, the league office remains expected to suspend him for at least one game, possibly more.
This is great news for Smith and the Niners, but one more slip up and he’s likely done in the NFL.
