07:10 AM ET 10.28 | Niners linebacker Aldon Smith, while not on the field, has been in the news quite a bit this week. G.M. Trent Baalke has said that he's "hopeful" Smith could return after the Week Nine bye. Commissioner Roger Goodell has said that Smith's decision to enter rehab will be regarded as a positive factor when the NFL determines the proper discipline for Smith, who was arrested in September for DUI. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there's still no timetable for Smith's return. Per the source, Smith remains in rehab, nearly five weeks after entering an in-patient treatment program. There could be developments on Smith in the near future. For now, though, no one knows with any certainty when Smith will be back with the team.

He has a gun charge hanging over his head as a result of another incident in 2012.

He was invited to the Santa Clara Counties Sheriffs Firing Range to help raise money to update their facilities, he was able to shoot many types of weapons including automatic weapons.

Although if found guilty he could end up in jail for 4 years. Because of California's crowded prison system he will more than likely end up being put on probation and paying a hefty fine of somewhere between $250,000.00 and $500,000.00 spread out over 5-6 years.

The Ginger God will make it difficult for him to rake in $250K through his current job.

He's got to to get his head screwed back on to his shoulders!

His career is toast. It's not just the boozing and DUI. He's going to face serious charges from the party he held at his house when he charged a cover-charge, charged for booze, and then discharged an assault rifle to get his "guests" to leave, wounding two people. He could spend upwards of 4 years in jail if convicted.
