Add possession of marijuana to Aldon Smith’s list

As the news stacks up regarding this morning’s DUI arrest for 49ers outside linebacker, there’s plenty of reason to wonder if he’ll play this week.

According to Matt Maiocco of, Aldon Smith was also charged with possession of marijuana in addition to suspicion of DUI. He was arrested at 7 a.m., which means he was ostensibly on his way to work when he crashed his car.

The 49ers have issued the usual boilerplate statement, but they have also provided precedent.
Last season, when defensive tackle DeMarcus Dobbs was arrested on similar charges after a single-car accident, they left him at home while the rest of the team traveled to St. Louis.

Then again, DeMarcus Dobbs doesn’t have 37.0 sacks in 34 career games, and the 49ers don’t have to board a plane this week, as they host the Colts.
