Jed York: ‘Aldon Smith is taking an indefinite leave of absence’
Update: It is an indefinite leave of absence, not a team suspension.
#49ers will place Aldon Smith on the non-football injury list Monday or Tuesday, per source, as soon as he registers at treatment facility

Owner Jed York spoke to the media today after the loss to the Colts. The main topic of discussion was Aldon Smith. Jed York told the media that Aldon Smith will not play Thursday against the St. Louis Rams and that Aldon was suspended indefinitely.
The 49ers have said that it is a personal matter and that there is no timetable for Aldon’s return. Aldon spoke with the media as well and apologized and vowed to ‘fix’ the problem.
