49ers' Aldon Smith arrested on suspicion of DUI

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker Aldon Smith was released from jail Friday after his pickup truck apparently struck a tree and he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana possession, authorities said.

Smith later took to the practice field with his teammates Friday afternoon at team headquarters in Santa Clara. He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 4.

Smith declined to comment when reporters asked about his arrest.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters Friday that he expects that Smith will play Sunday when the Niners host the Indianapolis Colts at Candlestick Park.

"I expect Aldon — like today — he'll be back to work and playing on Sunday," Harbaugh said. "I anticipate that, yes."
