ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl outside linebacker Aldon Smith is unlikely to rejoin the team this season as he deals with his rehab and recent felony gun charges.

Schefter writes: "With Aldon Smith in rehab and facing felony charges of possession of assault weapons, 49ers are not counting on him returning this year."

This is a big blow to the Niners defense, but it's an even bigger blow to Smith, as his NFL career could end up becoming jeopardized.
