The San Francisco 49ers activated troubled All-Pro outside linebacker Aldon Smith from the non-football injury list.
Smith has been in rehab for alcohol treatment since late September, missing five games.
Smith turned himself in on felony weapons charges on Tuesday and is free on bail.
Smith could potentially play as soon as a Nov. 10 game against the Carolina Panthers following the 49ers' bye.
He has met with 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh this week.
Smith has court dates on Nov. 12 and Nov. 19 on a driving under the influence charge and the weapons case.
Smith, 24, has been on an indefinite leave of absence.
