Some more thoughts on Aldon Smith as he has been activated from the non-football illness list:No rush: Yes, technically, the San Francisco 49ers were forced to activate Smith form the NFI list because he left treatment this week. But there was no rush here. It all revolved around substance-abuse treatment. He could have stayed in treatment for an unlimited amount of time. The fact that Smith was released from treatment was a signal from his physicians and treatment experts that he is ready to resume football activities.
