San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Justin Smith and linebacker Aldon Smith are working back from offseason surgeries, and general manager Trent Baalke expects each to be full strength and ready for the start of training camp this summer.
Justin Smith underwent surgery shortly after the team's 34-31 Super Bowl loss to the Baltimore Ravens on his partially torn left triceps muscle, which he played with late in the season while wearing a bulky brace. Baalke says Smith has no restrictions and has resumed weight lifting and other offseason training. The team's voluntary conditioning program began Monday and has near full participation.
Aldon Smith needed a shoulder operation to repair a torn labrum. He finished his second NFL season with 19.5 sacks, 66 tackles, three forced fumbles and an interception.
