ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The NFL office clarified Wednesday the status of suspended Oakland Raiders outside linebacker Aldon Smith, stating that while there could be a decision on reinstatement by Friday, there does not have to be one.In short, Smith remains in limbo almost two weeks after his yearlong suspension ended on Nov. 17 and nearly 60 days after he applied for reinstatement on Oct. 3.In an email from NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, Smiths suspension falls under the collectively bargained substances of abuse policy and many steps have to be satisfied within 60 days of the players application for reinstatement before it can be granted.Also, the player must provide all documentation and follow the procedures set forth in the policy, McCarthy wrote. The application should include all pertinent information about the Players:a) Treatment;b) Abstinence from Substances of Abuse throughout the entire period of his banishment;c) Involvement with any Substances of Abuse related incidents; andd) Arrests and/or convictions for any criminal activity, including Substances of Abuse-related offenses.Per a report by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Sunday, Smith spent 120 days at a rehabilitation facility in Carbondale, Colorado, after a Periscope video on an account purportedly belonging to Smith posted an unidentified man and woman talking about a hand-rolled cigarette.Smith has denied it was him in the video, which was posted over the summer. The NFL was going to investigate the video, according to ESPNs Ed Werder, since it may have violated the terms of Smiths suspension, as noted above.Smith has had issues before, going to rehab in 2013 and serving a nine-game suspension in 2014 for violating the leagues personal conduct and substance abuse policies while with the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners cut him in training camp in 2015 after his fifth arrest since entering the league in 2011. ?He signed with the Raiders in September 2015 before being suspended that November.And despite being under suspension, and not allowed to have formal contact with the team as part of the suspension, the Raiders re-signed him to a two-year contract in April following his 3.5 sacks in nine games for Oakland.Below are the procedures used when an application is received by the NFL commissioner, per McCarthy:1. Within 45 days of receipt of the application, the Player will be interviewed by the Medical Director and the Medical Advisor, after which a recommendation will be made to the Commissioner with regard to the Players request for reinstatement.2. The Player will execute appropriate medical release forms that will enable the Commissioners staff and NFLPA Executive Directors staff to review the Players substance abuse history, including but not limited to attendance at counseling sessions (individual, group and family); attendance at 12-step and other self-help group meetings; periodic progress reports; and all diagnostic findings and treatment recommendations.3. The Player will submit to urine testing by an NFL representative at a frequency determined by the Medical Advisor.4. The Player will agree in a meeting with the Commissioner or his representative(s) to comply with the conditions imposed by the Commissioner for his reinstatement to the status of an active Player.5. All individuals involved in the process will take steps to enable the Commissioner to render a decision within 60 days of the receipt of the application. Jordy Mercer Jersey .

STORRS, Conn. -- UConn made an effort to get inside against North Florida and ended up with its most lopsided win of the season.Kentan Facey scored a career-high 20 points to lead five Huskies in double figures and UConn beat the Ospreys 80-59 on Sunday.The 6-foot-10 senior added nine rebounds and four of the teams 13 blocked shots as UConn evened its record at 5-5.Christian Vital and Jalen Adams each had 13 for UConn. Rodney Purvis and Amida Brimah added 11 apiece.Adams also had 10 assists and Brimah hit all five of his shots and blocked four of North Floridas.UConn (5-5) dominated the game down low, outscoring the Ospreys 40-10 in the paint.Coach has been emphasizing that we needed to get some more points in the paint, some more touches in the paint so we could play inside-out and I think we did a good job of that tonight, Facey said.Dallas Moore led North Florida (4-10) with 18 points, but had just three after halftime. Garrett Sams added 16 points and for the Ospreys, who were held to 33.3 percent shooting.UConn led by five at halftime. Purvis scored nine points during a 13-3 second-half run that pushed a 55-50 lead to 68-53.The Huskies trailed 7-2 early, before it found the inside game. A baby hook by Steven Enoch gave the Huskies their first lead at 8-7.A steal and driving layup by Vital gave the Huskies their first double-digit lead at 28-17.Moore had been averaging more than 23 points a game.

When the best player on the floor has to deal with that constantly and then make shots over shot-blockers like that and do those things, it wears on you.The Huskies average margin of victory in their previous four wins was 4.5 points, and that included an 11-point victory over Division II Chaminade.Our bigs pretty much dominated thhe game, said UConn coach Kevin Ollie.ddddddddddddBIG PICTUREUConn: The Huskies are holding teams to just over 38 percent shooting for the year and held their three previous opponents to 30.3 percent. Boston University shot 31 percent, Syracuse was held to 26 percent and Ohio State beat the Huskies despite shooting just 34 percent.Facey said the team has made defense its focus, especially after losing two key offensive cogs, guard Alterique Gilbert and forward Terry Larrier to injury for the season.We knew we had to change our mindset to give ourselves a chance to win games, he said.North Florida: The Ospreys have played a tough nonconference schedule. Their losses this year include road games at Auburn, Syracuse, LSU, and Arkansas. They fell to Miami and Florida at home. But Driscoll said he doesnt buy into the theory that playing those teams will help his guys when they face Atlantic Sun opponents.We do this because we have to bring in a large amount of money for our athletic department, he said. That wears on you. Wouldnt you rather play a lesser of a schedule and have more wins and give your guys confidence that way?MORE ON MOOREMoore had scored 30 or more points in in four of his last five outings . Adams said he and the other UConn guards were determined not to let that happen against them.We knew we just had to lock in on him, Adams said. If you can cut the head off the snake then we can more likely get the `W.
