Seahawks' Aldon Smith: Jailed for alleged battery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith turned himself in at St. Bernard Parish Prison in Chalmette, La. on Tuesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest in connection with an alleged battery that occurred Saturday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

According to the St. Bernard Parish District Attorney, Smith allegedly choked a victim unconscious during a confrontation that occurred in a coffee shop. He's scheduled to be arraigned July 14 on a second-degree battery charge, and if convicted, Smith would face a fine of up to $2,000 and/or eight years in prison. The Seahawks -- who signed Smith to a one-year, $1.13 million contract two days before the alleged incident occurred -- announced Monday in a statement that they are aware of the pass rusher's arrest and are still in the process of gathering more information on the matter.

Seahawks' Aldon Smith: Wanted on battery charge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is wanted for a second-degree battery that occurred Saturday in Chalmette, La., Travers Mackel of WDSU New Orleans reports.

Mackel notes that law enforcement has video of the alleged incident involving Smith, who has yet to turn himself into police. Since entering the NFL in 2011, Smith has endured numerous legal issues that sidetracked his career and notably kept him off the field for four full seasons before he played in all 16 games for Dallas in 2020. Smith came to terms on a one-year deal with Seattle two days before the alleged incident in Louisiana occurred, but that contract could be in jeopardy now that he's facing a battery charge.

Seahawks' Aldon Smith: Joining Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is signing a one-year contract with the Seahawks, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Smith returned from a four-year absence to start all 16 games for the Cowboys in 2020, recording 47 tackles, 14 QB hits and five sacks on 809 defensive snaps. It was a far cry from his peak production with the 49ers back in 2011 and 2012, but Smith should nonetheless be helpful in Seattle, where the pass rush has been lackluster since the heyday of Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril in the early-to-mid aughts. Depth at DE shouldn't be an issue in 2021, with Smith joined by Carlos Dunlap, L.J. Collier, Kerry Hyder, Darrell Taylor and Benson Mayowa.

Aldon Smith: Won't be back in Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys don't intend to re-sign Smith, Ed Werder of ESPN reports.

Smith logged an impressive comeback season with the Cowboys in 2020, recording 48 tackles and five sacks while playing the full 16-game slate in what was his first NFL action since 2015. Though he opened the season on a high note, he lost some steam down the stretch, going without a sack from Weeks 9 through 17. Now a free agent and with Dallas having decided to move on, Smith will likely have to settle for a rotational role with another club regardless of where he lands next.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Incredible comeback in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded 48 tackles (31 solo) with five sacks, two passes defended and two fumble recoveries over 16 games in 2020.

Were it not for Alex Smith, Aldon would have been a shoo-in for the Comeback Player of the Year Award. The 31-year-old edge rusher hadn't played in an NFL game since 2015, but after getting his life in order off the field he made his return and demonstrated that he still retained a lot of his elite athleticism, posting a three-sack day against the Seahawks in Week 3 and returning a fumble 78 yards for a touchdown against the Bengals in Week 14. The Cowboys and new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn likely will make every effort to bring Smith back next season, but the veteran will be looking for a significant raise on the $2 million he made in 2020.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Returns TD to house Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded three tackles (one solo) and returned a fumble for a 78-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Cincy fumbled on each of its first three possessions, leading to 17 first-half points for Dallas -- including Smith's second career TD, and first since 2012. The 31-year-old has had a remarkable comeback campaign in Dallas, and he now has 47 tackles with five sacks through 13 games.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Ready to face Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Smith was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, but his availability for Sunday's game doesn't appear to be in any danger. The veteran linebacker stands to draw his usual start versus Cincinnati.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Pops up on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Smith wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report at all, but he's now managing a foot injury. Friday's practice should be telling as to the veteran linebacker's chances of suiting up in Cincinnati on Sunday.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Ready for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (illness) is active for Tuesday's game at Baltimore.

The 31-year-old was considered questionable due to the illness, but it's not a surprise he's suiting up after putting in a full practice Saturday. Smith has 44 total tackles and five sacks through 11 games in his first season of NFL action since 2015.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Ravens, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

After consecutive missed practices, Smith returned to the field as a full participant Saturday, signaling that he should be good to go Tuesday, barring a setback. The 31-year-old was a menace to start the season, producing four sacks through three games. However, he has recorded just one sack over the last eight outings.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Misses consecutive practices
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (illness) didn't participate in Friday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Smith didn't practice with the team for a second straight day. There's no indication that his current illness is related to COVID-19, but he'll likely stay away from the team until fully healthy. With a rare Tuesday night game on tap, Smith has four more days to recover before a matchup with the Ravens.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 31-year-old was considered questionable for Week 9, but his availability never appeared in serious doubt. Smith has been a bright spot on the Dallas defense this season with 35 tackles and five sacks through eight games in his first NFL action since 2015.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Should play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Steelers, despite being listed as questionable for the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith's availability will be confirmed when the Cowboys release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. He was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but Smith likely won't face any restrictions if he's active for the contest. The edge rusher has recorded 35 tackles and five sacks through Dallas' first eight games.

Smith (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Gehlken also reported Thursday that Smith is expected to play Sunday, and Friday's limited practice session bodes well for that notion. Smith has been excellent in his return to the NFL, as he's produced five sacks and two pass breakups through nine games. His official status likely won't be revealed until 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 kickoff.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Expected to play through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice but is expected to suit up against the Steelers on Sunday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Smith began the week with back-to-back limited practices, but it doesn't look as though his availability is in any serious danger. As long as he's able to suit up, the veteran pass rusher will look to provide key pressure against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers on Sunday.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck) isn't listed on the final injury report heading into Sunday's game against Washington, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

This news backs up coach Mike McCarthy's assertion that the pass rusher would be out there come Sunday. Smith has a great opportunity to build on his season total of four sacks against a Washington team that has allowed 11 sacks in its last two games.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Smith (neck) will be limited in practice but is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Football Team, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

McCarthy also noted that Smith, who missed Wednesday's practice, "jammed" his neck versus the Cardinals on Monday. Barring any setbacks, it looks like Smith is set to draw his usual start at Washington, though it remains to be seen whether his injury could limit him to a snap count.

October 21, 2020 06:24 PM
Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Smith logged his lowest snap share of the season (66 percent) in Monday's loss to the Cardinals, so he may have been feeling the effects during the game. Regardless, his status is uncertain for this Sunday's matchup against Washington, and he'll need to get on the field by Friday to have a chance to suit up. Smith started the season on fire with four sacks over the first three games, but he's been blanked over the last three contests. If he misses time, Dorance Armstrong is expected to start at strong-side linebacker.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Three sacks in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded four solo tackles, including three sacks, in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Shifted into more of a purely pass-rush oriented role after he took on additional linebacking duties in Week 1, the 31-year-old turned back the clock with a performance reminiscent of the backfield havoc he caused for the 49ers his first two seasons in the league, when he piled up 33.5 sacks in 32 games. Smith now has 20 tackles and four sacks through three weeks despite not having played in an NFL contest since 2015, and he's well on his way to making one of the most remarkable comebacks in history.

Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Excellent debut for Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith totaled 11 tackles (six solo), one sack and two quarterback hits against the Rams on Sunday.

Smith looked great by any standard, but especially for a player who had been out of the league for five years. Even with his 31st birthday coming up later in September, Smith seems to have quite a bit left in the tank. Although his tackle rate will fall off in upcoming games, he's a candidate to emerge as one of the top IDPs in leagues where he's eligible on the defensive line.
