Commissioner Roger Goodell has said that Smith’s decision to enter rehab will be regarded as a positive factor when the NFL determines the proper discipline for Smith, who was arrested in September for DUI. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there’s still no timetable for Smith’s return. Per the source, Smith remains in rehab, nearly five weeks after entering an in-patient treatment program.
