NAPA _ Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith has checked into a treatment center, the Web site TMZ reported Friday.

Smith, currently under suspension under the NFL program for substances of abuse, was to miss a minimum of nine games and would have been eligible in September to apply for reinstatement 60 days before the suspension ended.

A Raiders official at the club’s first training camp practice declined comment.

The story did not say why Smith was in treatment. In 2013, Smith had went into rehab following two DUI arrests.

A video surfaced last week of a man who was not shown firing up what appeared to be a joint with a voice that sounds like Smith talking about a “fire up session.”

Smith responded on Twitter with a post that said, “Good try, not me.”

Although the NFL has recently reinstated suspended players Josh Gordon and Dion Jordan, Smith may have put his 2016 season in jeopardy as well as his career if he has run foul of the provisions of his suspension.

    I did it last year. 100 bucks but it didn’t have the college requirement. Loved it and am renewing. Network broadcast in HD with no commercials, plus you can watch that game and any other you want all season long. You do have to wait until the game is over to watch it, but that works for me because I prefer do other things earlier then just kick back in the evening and watch.

    You just have to resist the temptation to check the score during the day, lol.

    I over rate drafted players and underate fas.
    So I wouldn’t be hurt. But he’s pretty good.
    When we drafted jihad, I thought he was dans eventual replacent though.
