Game Day: San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos

Aug 29, 2015 at 12:00 AM--


Tonight, the Denver Broncos (2-0) will host the San Francisco 49ers (1-1) at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

The 49ers are coming off of a 23-6 home victory against the Dallas Cowboys. The Broncos are coming off of a 14-10 road victory against the Houston Texans.


The 49ers hit the road for their third preseason game. The team has been in Denver for most of the week, taking part in joint practices with the Broncos at their training facility, the Paul D. Bowlen Memorial Broncos Centre. Unlike some NFL teams that attempt to do the same thing, the joint practices have mostly gone without an incident with both teams feeling that they have been beneficial.

You can view the day one practice notes and the day two practice notes from numerous team beat writers, many of whom traveled to Denver for the week.

Last week, the 49ers defense recorded a trio of interceptions from S Craig Dahl, CB Dontae Johnson and NT Mike Purcell. Purcell took his interception 37 yards to the end zone for a touchdown. San Francisco's defense also recorded 4.0 sacks on the day in their home win over the Cowboys.

On special teams, WR Quinton Patton blocked a punt and recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. RB Jarryd Hayne returned three punts for 84 yards (28.0 average).

Of course, OLB Ahmad Brooks stole the headlines this week after returning home to California to face a charge of misdemeanor sexual battery. A number of outside linebackers will attempt to fill his role as the regular season quickly approaches.

Today will be the exhibition debut of running backs Reggie Bush and Kendall Hunter. Bush was a free agent acquisition while Hunter is returning from an ACL injury suffered in 2014.

DB Craig Dahl, TE Vance McDonald, LB Philip Wheeler, CB Tramaine Brock, LB Desmond Bishop will not play against the Broncos.

What Kyle Shanahan said the day after 49ers-Broncos

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a conference call on Monday, the day after the team's 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Opening comments: "Alright, guys. Injuries from the game, [T] Trent Williams ended up having a high-ankle sprain. He'll be out some time. [LB] Azeez [Al-Shaair] had an MCL sprain, it's very similar to what [RB] Elijah [Mitchell] did, so most likely won't require surgery, but probably the same time. We'll see, but I know we gave Elijah, our guess was around eight weeks. [TE] Ross Dwelley has ribs, he'll be day-to-day with those. Go ahead guys." Any



17 quick, aggravating observations from the 49ers loss in Denver

By Marc Adams
Sep 26

Well, that was about as aggravating as a loss can get. The San Francisco 49ers defense was dominant. The offense was offensive. Disgusting. Predictable. I could go on, but I'm guessing you already have a plethora of words to describe last night's offensive performance for yourself. So I won't add any more. At halftime, this game seemed strikingly familiar. Dominating a team on the road, but barely having any points to show for it. And just like that stormy game in Chicago, the 49ers sank in the second half, giving up the lead, and then failing to take the lead back. One difference was the quarterback. This one was more aggravating because you expect Trey Lance to struggle. We all knew he'd have some bad moments. But Jimmy Garoppolo should be better by now. And



49ers work out several quarterbacks, receivers, and tight ends ahead of Broncos game

By David Bonilla
Sep 20

On Monday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted that the team would look to work out running backs after losing rookie Ty Davis-Price to a high-ankle sprain for several weeks. The team will also seek another quarterback, with Trey Lance's season over due to a broken ankle. Those weren't the only injuries from Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Tight end Tyler Kroft suffered an MCL sprain and will also miss several weeks. That prompted the 49ers to work out former North Carolina tight end Garrett Walston, who signed with San Francisco as an
