49ers’ Aldon Smith stabbed during party

49ers fans got some troubling news about their 2011 leader in sacks today when they found out that Aldon Smith, who had 14 sacks last year, was stabbed during a house party in nearby Santa Clara last night. This was originally reported by Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee and confirmed by several other sources. Meanwhile, the 49ers have confirmed that Smith was injured, but will not confirm that he was stabbed. Smith was said to have escaped with only “minor injuries.”

Smith is an incredibly talented pass rusher. As only a part time player in 2011, Smith had 17 sacks, 17 quarterback hits, and 43 quarterback pressures on 441 pass rush snaps, including playoffs, good for a 17.5% rate. He’ll have a full time role in 2012 and the 7th pick of the 2011 NFL Draft has an incredibly bright future, but he’ll need to start making better decisions off the field and not putting himself in so many dangerous situations. Earlier this offseason, he was arrested for DUI and now this incident, as the result of his off the field lifestyle. He needs to focus more.
