PFT on NBC Sports Network: Aldon Smith, Week 8 previews


49ers linebacker Aldon Smith doesn’t have to play until Monday so he’s using a little of his extra time to drop by Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network on Friday.

Smith will speak to Erik Kuselias during the program about the 5-2 49ers and where things will go over the final nine games of the schedule. We’ll also find out if there are any major differences in his second professional season and anything else Smith cares to share about his 2012 season.

After that, it is time to look ahead to the teams that will play on Sunday. Mike Florio, Peter King and Pete Najarian will join Kuselias for a look at all the biggest news and injuries impacting Week Eight. They’ll make some picks, preview some games and even squeeze in a little time to look back at Tampa’s Thursday night win against the Vikings.

Everything gets going at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
