Aldon Smith continues the process of dealing with his multiple legal entanglements.
Smith immediately posted $75,000 in bail after he was processed. Smith is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 12. He has an additional court date on Nov. 19 to face misdemeanor DUI and drug charges.
Smith's self-surrender was part of an agreement with authorities after he was charged with possessing illegal assault weapons on Oct. 9. Smith had been in rehab at the time of the charge, stemming from his DUI arrest on Sept. 20. Smith has been on an "indefinite absence" from the 49ers.
The weapons charges stem from an ill-fated house party Smith threw at his home in 2012. Two people were shot at the party, and Smith was stabbed. Investigators searched the home and found three illegal assault weapons amid a cache of firearms.
"The best approach is the day-to-day approach," said Harbaugh, who wouldn't speculate on a Smith return date. "And just focusing on having a good day today. Getting the most out of today and avoid the 'if this, if that, in a week, in two weeks, in a month' timetable type of talk."
