Raiders’ Smith banned

OAKLAND Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith was suspended a minimum of one year by the National Football League on Tuesday violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

The Raiders voiced support for Smith, saying they were committed to back him “as he gets the help that he needs”. Smith, who can apply for reinstatement 60 days before the one-year ban is up, was released by the San Francisco 49ers in August after a string of off-field incidents. He pleaded not guilty in September to hit and run, drunken driving and vandalism. The 25-year-old was arrested in August on drunken driving charges in Santa Clara, California.
