Bomani Jones believes Aldon Smith should not be blamed for his whereabouts.

After Aldon Smith's stabbing last week, some writers suggested that the former Missouri player should have known better than to be out that late at night.

Bomani Jones believes that such an assessment of the incident is unfair to Smith.

Rather than being glad a 22-year-old wasn't hurt while trying to defuse a situation, more folks want to figure out why it's his fault he got cut. As more details emerge, maybe we'll find out Smith should have used better judgment Saturday night. Until then, can't we just be happy things didn't end worse?

Smith suffered minor injuries after the incident. Smith was at a house party in San Jose, Calif., that over 100 people attended. There also were allegedly gunshots at the party.

The injuries are not supposed to jeopardize his status for training camp with the San Francisco 49ers.

He led all NFL rookies with 14 sacks last season.
