NFL roundup: 49ers' Smith arrested after crash

The SportsXchange

San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Aldon Smith was arrested Friday morning for suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession after he was involved in a crash, according to the Santa Clara County Sherriff's Department.

Smith was the driver in a single-vehicle accident, according to San Jose Police. Nobody was injured in the crash. He was arrested at 7 a.m.

The Bay Area News Group reported that marijuana and pills were also found in the car Smith was driving when he crashed into a tree. He also reportedly had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.15.

An NFL spokesman told the Bay Area News Group that such an arrest could result in a suspension, per league policy.

It is Smith's second DUI arrest since the 49ers drafted him in the first round in 2011.

---Houston Texans running back Arian Foster said in a documentary, which airs in October, that he was paid while starring at Tennessee.

"I called my coach and I said, 'Coach, we don't have no food. We don't have no money. We're hungry," Foster said, in a three-minute clip previewing "Schooled: The Price of College Sports." "Either you give us some food, or I'm gonna go do something stupid.' He came down and he brought like 50 tacos for like four or five of us. Which is an NCAA violation. (He laughs). But then, I walk up to the facility and I see my coach pull up in a brand new Lexus."

Foster was at Tennessee from 2005-08.

--The Seattle Seahawks will place left tackle Russell Okung on the Injured Reserve-Designated to Return list with a torn ligament in his left big toe, the team confirmed Friday.

That designation means Okung, who was selected to the Pro Bowl last season, will be sidelined for at least eight games and cannot return until the Seahawks' Nov. 17 home game against Minnesota. However, Okung is not out for the rest of the season, which had been the Seahawks' fear.

---Houston Texans safety Ed Reed confirmed that he will start Sunday's game against his former team, the Baltimore Ravens, in his 2013 debut on Sunday.

Reed underwent offseason hip surgery after signing a three-year, $15 million contract in March to join the Texans and has missed the first two games.

---Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said that injured running back Ray Rice is considered a "game-time decision" for Sunday's game against the Texans.

He is listed as doubtful on the team's injury report because of hip injury.

---Green Bay Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy won't play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals as he recovers from a head injury he sustained early in last Sunday's win over Washington.

James Starks already has been named the starter.

---Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush practiced with the team for the first time this week, putting him in line to be in the starting lineup Sunday. He has been bothered by a knee injury.

---Indianapolis Colts starting safety LaRon Landry is ruled out for Sunday's game at the San Francisco 49ers because of an ankle injury. Landry, who leads the NFL with 26 tackles, was injured last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

---Atlanta Falcons left tackle Sam Baker was ruled out of Sunday's game for the Atlanta Falcons because of foot and knee injuries.

---New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was upgraded to questionable on the team's injury report.

Gronkowski, who has not played since he was injured in the regular-season finale in December 2012 against the Miami Dolphins, had been listed as doubtful. Gronkowski had multiple forearm and back surgeries in the offseason.

---The New York Jets and New England Patriots combined for $88,500 worth of fines stemming from their Sept. 12 game.

The fourth-quarter incident, in which two players were ejected, started after a low hit from Jets center Nick Mangold was delivered on Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib.

Jets offensive tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson was fined $15,000 for punching an opponent, and guard Willie Colon was fined $34,125 -- $26,250 for making contact with an official and $7,875 for punching an opponent.

---Outside linebacker Quinton Coples was deemed "100 percent" recovered from a hairline fracture in his ankle by head coach Rex Ryan and is listed as probable for the New York Jets on Sunday.

--- Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather plans to appeal the $42,000 fine levied against him for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy, reported.
