49ers await Aldon Smith decision

Oct 27, 2014 at 8:19 AM--


According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers expect to hear from the NFL today whether linebacker Aldon Smith will be reinstated for this week.

Smith is currently serving a nine-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policies.


Over the summer, Smith pleaded no contest to three counts of illegal weapons possession and two counts of drunken driving. In July, Smith was sentenced to 12 days of work release and three years probation.

In April, Smith was arrested for making a false bomb threat at Los Angeles International Airport. The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office ultimately decided not to charge Smith.

49ers sticking with Jimmy Garoppolo wasn't a tough decision, says Kyle Shanahan

There was a lot of pressure for the San Francisco 49ers to play rookie Trey Lance more. Not just at the start of the season but throughout the entire 2021 campaign. That included the week leading to the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, especially with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo dealing with a pretty concerning right thumb injury. Garoppolo did play through the pain of his torn ligament and chipped bone in that thumb. He put in a gutsy performance, leading the 49ers to a playoff-clinching 27-24 overtime victory over the Rams. Head coach Kyle Shanahan did what he could to block out the outside noise, never giving in to the pressure to start Lance. It ended up being the right call, but the coach understands why everyone wanted to see the

Few expected San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to start the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams this past weekend. Reports gave the impression that he wouldn't be able to properly grip the football, much less throw it downfield to his receivers. Ian Rapoport reported that Garoppolo is expected to have offseason surgery. Head coach Kyle Shanahan acknowledged that as a possibility. The quarterback has a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. Still, Garoppolo delivered a gutsy performance, fought through the pain, and led his 49ers to a thrilling 27-24 overtime win at SoFi Stadium. It wasn't until the Tuesday



49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to



Fred Warner on 49ers-Cowboys: 'It's going to be a battle'

Everyone is getting pretty excited for Sunday's playoff clash between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys. Players on both teams are too young to know what this rivalry once meant to fans. However, they know that one team's season will end this weekend. Many are saying that no team—not even the NFC East champions—wants to face the 49ers right now. They could be among the playoffs' most dangerous teams. "They're very confident," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Tuesday. "They've won some big games. They've won it against some good teams. They play in a tough division over there. … They'll be a real, real mess to deal with out here Sunday." Star linebacker Fred Warner knows none of that matters regarding Sunday's game. The
