The 49ers are on a bye this week. If Smith's suspension gets cut, he could return as early as Week 9 against the Rams, the report said.
The NFL has announced that
Smith has been charged with a DUI and also made a bomb threat at an airport. He has also dealt with a felony firearms issue.
The suspension is a bit longer than what had been anticipated for Smith, who racked up 8 1/2 sacks in just 11 games a year ago after recording 19 1/2 in a full season in 2012.
Smith met with the commissioner on Thursday to discuss his pending suspension for facing multiple charges including a DUI, a felony firearms issue and making a bomb threat at an airport. A ruling is expected to be made by Goodell in the near future.
Smith is still expected to be suspended for at least one game following his sentencing for pleading no contest to May DUI and felony weapons charges.
Smith served a five-game suspension last season.
