49ers activate Aldon Smith


The San Francisco 49ers have activated linebacker Aldon Smith from the non-football injury list.

The 24-year-old Smith entered an alcohol rehabilitation program after playing for the team in Week 3.  He still leads the team with 4.5 sacks.

Coach Jim Harbaugh didn’t say when the 49ers third-year linebacker would return to the field.

“I think the prudent thing to do is look at it day-to-day and have a goal of having a great day,” Harbaugh said. “He’s been taking that approach, really over the last five weeks. And it’s served him well and he’s quite a bit of progress.”

The 49ers host the Carolina Panthers on Nov. 10.
