SANTA CLARA, Calif. – One of the positive outcomes from the situation surrounding linebacker Aldon Smith is rookie Corey Lemonier is getting a chance to play for the San Francisco 49ers.Lemonier has played a lot the past two games while Smith is in rehab for substance abuse. He is splitting time with Dan Skuta, is getting a lot of work in passing situations, and has also shined on special teams. Smith could be back on the field sometime next month, but even then I think Lemonier will have a role.
