Aldon Smith had an amazing rookie season for the San Francisco 49ers in 2011.
Smith almost suffered a sophomore slump early Saturday morning through no fault of his own.
The 49ers released a statement through a team spokesperson that stated, “We are in contact with Aldon, and thankful that his injuries were not more serious and that he is recovering comfortably. The 49ers are also in communication with local authorities as they gather information regarding the incident, and will reserve further comment at this time.”
Smith was the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft.
Even tho he wasn’t a starter he still set a rookie team record with 14 sacks in the regular season. That was the most for an NFL rookie since Jevon Kearse set the mark for incoming players in 1999.
Smith will need to reeled in some by the franchise.
In January, Smith was arrested for driving under the influence in Miami.
