If anything comes of this incident, it seems unlikely Smith will ever see an National Football League field again as a player.

TMZ Sports reports suspended Raiders OLB Aldon Smith is under investigation in California for a "domestic incident".

The specifics of what exactly happened are unknown.

Not only has Smith continually violated the NFL's substance abuse policy, but now it appears domestic violence may a real possibility.

Smith is mentioned in a report about their response and described as cooperative, but no details about what led to the call for police help have been made public at this time.

Thomas Meunier surged forward from right-back and set up Cavani, who thumped home his 34th goal of the season in all competitions. It's fair to say no one saw that coming. "They have top quality players; they made some good signings in January", Gomes said.

The linebacker was allowed to apply for reinstatement after one year, which he did in November 2016.

Smith had been quiet in 2017, but was seen in an Instagram Live video recorded by Bay Area News Group saying, "I'm back, and there's nobody who can stop me".

During an interview on February 9, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie told 95.7 the Game that the team would welcome Smith back whenever he gets reinstated. The arrest was his third DUI since entering the National Football League in 2011.

He has played in only 27 of a possible 64 games since the start of the 2013 season because of suspensions and an earlier stint in rehab in 2013 after a DUI arrest.

A team spokesman said the Raiders had no comment.
