The San Francisco 49ers are finally back in action at Levi's Stadium, hosting the Denver Broncos at 5:30 PM on Saturday for their second preseason game of the year.

After not playing last weekend, quarterback Brock Purdy could see a series or two of action against the Broncos, according to Kyle Shanahan, but the gameplan is expected to be flipped from last weekend, with backup Sam Darnold getting a majority of the first half, while Trey Lance plays in his relief during the second half.

However, the quarterbacks aren't the only ones in the spotlight, as there are several players to keep an eye out for at a number of positions on the roster.

Stay tuned with our live updates throughout the game!
