49ers Activate LB Aldon Smith

The 49ers have activated linebacker Aldon Smith from the team's NFI list.

The San Francisco 49ers have activated linebacker Aldon Smith from the NFI List.

Smith, the third-year linebacker, currently leads the team with 4.5 sacks despite not playing in the team's current five-game winning streak.

Smith, the former first-round pick in 2011, visited team headquarters on Wednesday and spoke with 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. The 49ers coach discussed the meeting on a Bay Area radio station.

Harbaugh didn’t say when the 49ers third-year linebacker would return to the field.

“I think the prudent thing to do is look at it day-to-day and have a goal of having a great day,” Harbaugh said. “He’s been taking that approach, really over the last five weeks. And it’s served him well and he’s quite a bit of progress.”

The 49ers return to the field to host the Carolina Panthers on Nov. 10.
