Posted · Add Comment

San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith has been added to the active roster as the team lifted its roster exemption.

Smith is no longer on the reserve non-football injury list.

Smith did five weeks in a rehab facility for alcohol treatment following a driving under the influence arrest.

Smith is dealing with felony weapons charges.

“I'm getting there,” Smith told The Associated Press this week. “Every day's just a step closer to getting to where I want to be. I've gotten a lot of support, from my family, friends, organization, teammates and everything. And it really says a lot that people care about me outside the field and they care about me as a person.”
