Aldon Smith Could Have Suspension Reduced

Aldon Smith Could Have Suspension Reduced

Brian Bahr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- San Francisco 49er Aldon Smith could be returning sooner than later, according to a league source that confirmed Monday the linebacker's suspension may be reduced for good behavior.

Smith was initially suspended nine-games prior to the start of the season for violating the NFL's personal conduct and substance abuse policies. The suspension is set to be lifted on Nov. 10, following San Francisco's game against the New Orleans Saints.

However, a league source confirmed a report that the penalty may be reduced by one or two games. That means the linebacker could return prior to San Fran's matchup with the St. Louis Rams on Nov. 3. The 49ers have a bye-week in Week 8 and a Week 9 return would only improve a linebacking core that has been hampered with injuries and suspensions.

In order for the suspension to be reduced, Smith must maintain his good behavior. Under the terms of the suspension, the four-year veteran has been allowed at the team facilities for meetings and conditioning but has not been allowed to practice.

Manning Surpasses Favre in Broncos Victory

Manning Surpasses Favre in Broncos Victory

Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Once again, Peyton Manning finds himself in the record books. The Denver Broncos quarterback threw four touchdowns in Sunday night's 42-17 win over San Francisco, giving him 510 career touchdown passes and surpassing Brett Favre's NFL record of 508.

"It is quite an honor," Manning said. "I do have great appreciation for quarterbacks who played this game throughout the years. It's very humbling, has taken a lot of hard work, a lot of people helped me get to this point."

The record-breaking pass came late in the second quarter on an eight-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas that put the Broncos (5-1) up 21-3 over the 49ers (4-3). Upon setting the mark, Manning's teammates had a little fun with the 38-year old, playing keep-away with the momento before eventually congratulating their quarterback.

"I can't believe they actually did it," chided Manning. "They sort of joked about it during the week. I'm a little bit hurt by it. The fact that they thought they could do it."

It took just 246 career games for Manning to break the record set by Favre in 302 career games. The 16-year veteran has thrown 110 touchdown passes in his two-plus years with the Broncos, whom he signed with in 2012 following neck surgery that threatened his career.

49ers Defeat Rams 31-17

49ers Defeat Rams 31-17

NFL via Getty Images(ST. LOUIS, MO) -- The Rams came out fast taking a a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, but the 49ers dominated the other three quarters to win 31-17.

Colin Kaepernick took San Francisco on his shoulders and threw three touchdowns to push the 49ers record to 4-2.  Midway through the second quarter, Brandon Lloyd burned Janoris Jenkins in man coverage and Kaepernick threw it to him in stride. Lloyd outran Jenkins for an 80-yard touchdown that narrowed St. Louis's lead to 14-10. 

"We had Brandon Lloyd on a double move," Kaepernick said. "We liked the matchup. He did an amazing job."

Kaepernick and the 49ers came out in the second half on a mission.  The 49ers marched 80 yards down the field on a twelve-play drive that was capped off by an 11-yard touchdown grab by Anquan Boldin from Kaepernick. 

"Our receivers did a great job today," Kaepernick said. "Our offensive line did a great job, protecting us and giving us time."

The Rams were again held without a sack.  What was hyped in the offseason as one of the best four-man defensive fronts in the NFL has continued to struggle to generate a pass rush. 

The 49ers will now travel to Denver to face the Broncos on Sunday night.

Bears Score 21 in Fourth, Rally to Beat Niners

Bears Score 21 in Fourth, Rally to Beat Niners

Nick Laham/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- The debut of the new Levi's Stadium, the home of the San Francisco 49ers, went perfectly for three quarters. However, the Chicago Bears scored 21 points in the fourth to erase a 13-point deficit and beat the Niners 28-20 on Sunday night.

Colin Kaepernick threw three interceptions, and added a fumble, in the final period while Jay Cutler tossed three touchdowns to help Chicago (1-1) make the comeback on the road. San Francisco (1-1) led 17-0 early in the second quarter, and upped that advantage to 20-7 after three.

Rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller picked off Kaepernick twice in the fourth, giving the offense short fields to work with and plenty of time. His first interception, followed by an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the 49ers quarterback, put the Bears on the San Francisco three yard line. 

Cutler then found tight end Martellus Bennett in the endzone, giving Chicago a 21-20 lead. About four minutes later, Fuller intercepted Kaepernick again which eventually led to a three-yard touchdown pass from Cutler to Brandon Marshall. The wide out finished with three touchdowns on an ankle that was feared to keep him off the field.

49ers Ready to Host Bears

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- The San Francisco 49ers are looking to improve to 2-0 on Sunday when they will have their season opener at the new $1.2 billion Levi's Stadium against the Chicago Bears.

San Francisco is coming off a 28-17 win over the Cowboys and Chicago has not won in the bay area in almost three decades.

"I think everyone's focused on Chicago," 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepnerick said when asked about the pressure of getting a win in their first home game.  "I don't think we're worried about having our first game here, we're worried about trying to get this win."

The last time the Bears won in the Bay Area was in 1985 when they went on to win the Super Bowl.

"Scheme wise, they're just extremely sound, they know exactly what they want to do," Bears quarterback Jay Culter said of the 49ers defense.  "They're going to bring pressure; they've got very talented guys."

49ers’ LB Aldon Smith Suspended 9 Games

49ers’ LB Aldon Smith Suspended 9 Games

Brian Bahr/Getty Images(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has been suspended for the first nine games of the season after violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy.

Smith was sentenced in July to 11 days of work release in a Santa Clara County (Calif.) court after his September 2013 arrest for drunken driving.

On April 13, Smith was arrested at Los Angeles International airport for making a false bomb threat after an altercation at the security checkpoint, but the Los Angeles City Attorney's office declined to press charges.

"Our organization has known this decision would come and we have prepared for it as a team," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "Aldon has taken responsibility for his actions and has continued to show growth personally and professionally. We will continue to support him, but it is time to put this matter behind us and focus on the season ahead."

Smith is eligible to return to the 49ers roster on Nov. 10.

ESPN: 49ers’ Glenn Dorsey out for Season with Torn Biceps

ESPN: 49ers’ Glenn Dorsey out for Season with Torn Biceps

National Football League(NEW YORK) -- The San Francisco 49ers stout defense took a hit over the weekend as ESPN is reporting that defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey will miss the entire 2014 season after suffering a torn biceps.

It was stroke of bad luck for Dorsey, who was hurt on Friday during pracitce, which also happened to be his 29th birthday. He will undergo surgery on Monday.

Coming off a productive season with the 49ers in 2013, Dorsey is set to become a free agent at the end of the 2014 season.

Dorsey was the fifth overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008 but failed to live up to the lofty expectations placed on him. But with the 49ers, he became a key member of the defensive unit at nose tackle.

He recorded 41 tackles and 2.0 sacks in 16 games for the team in 2014.

Quinton Dial and Ian Williams are expected to see an increase in playing time in Dorsey's absence.

49ers Running Back Kendall Hunter Tears ACL

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- Just one day into training camp and the San Francisco 49ers are already dealing with a tough injury as running back Kendall Hunter will miss the entire upcoming season with a torn ACL.

Hunter hurt himself on Friday when he was catching a screen pass. He was able to walk off the field on his own, but the injury still proved to be serious.

Aside from Hunter, the team has veteran Frank Gore, LaMichael James, Marcus Lattimore and rookie Carlos Hyde.

In 16 games for the team last season, Hunter had 358 rushing yards on 78 carries while scoring three touchdowns.

Hunter is a free agent after this season.

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is still committed to the run game in 2014.

Coming off their Super Bowl run, the Seahawks have put their win over the Broncos in February in the past and are focusing on one practice and one week at a time headed into September.

"We want to run the football whenever we want to," Carroll said on Wednesday the team's annual Town Hall meeting with fans, according to the Seattle Times.  "We are an absolutely committed running football team."

The Seahawks will square off against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving in a rematch of last year's NFC Championship game and Carroll was asked about their head coach, Jim Harbaugh.

"[He's] a great coach and we love beating him," Carroll said.

The 62-year-old coach signed a contract extension in April that will keep him with the Seahawks through the 2016 season.
