San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was released from jail on Friday after he crashed his pickup truck into a tree and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana possession, authorities said, via the Associated Press. After he made bail, he later joined his teammates in practice and will most likely play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts at home. While Smith delcined comment on his arrest, head coach Jim Harbaugh said that he "expect[s] Aldon — like today — he'll be back to work and playing on Sunday," Harbaugh said, while deferring to the league on any punishment as a result of the incident. "There will be consequences. There always is," he added. "Good or bad, we all have consequences." Tight end Veron Davis also spoke about Smith's arrest to reporters: "Some guys listen, some guys don't. You can take the horse to the water, but you can't make him drink. It's all about doing the right thing," Davis said. "I'm sure he'll come around. It's just a matter of time. Hopefully, he'll learn from this situation that he got himself into, and maybe it will come out positive instead of negative." Per the AP: 'San Jose police arrested Smith after officers received a call from a resident about the crash in the city's Silver Creek area around 7 a.m., Sgt. Heather Randol said. Officers gave Smith breath tests and other tests after his pickup apparently struck a tree, hit a curb and left streak marks on a driveway and sidewalk. "They conducted an investigation and determined he was under the influence," Randol said about Smith. "He was the only person inside the vehicle." '
