The Denver Broncos (1-1) will host the San Francisco 49ers (1-0) in their third of five preseason games in 2019. They held two joint practice sessions at UCHealth Training Center on Friday and Saturday, with the latter session being fairly chippy with some fighting between the two teams.
Former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan was on hand this week with ties to both teams as his son Kyle is currently the head coach of the 49ers. He knows current head coach Vic Fangio quite well and his impressions of Fangio seem to align with the Fangio we’ve come to know throughout Broncos training camp.
The San Francisco 49ers face the Denver Broncos tonight on Monday Night Football. We should see the starters for a few series, but there are still plenty of positional battles that need to work themselves out. Last week it was clear that Kyle Shanahan wanted to see Richie James and Kendrick Bourne. Who will it be tonight? Here are the top position battles to watch:
We have talked about so many position battles that are lower on the depth chart, but we still don’t know who the leading back on the team is, and we likely won’t until after next week’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Having lost to the Atlanta Falcons in the Hall of Fame Game, the Broncos tasted defeat again in their second preseason game, going down 22-14 to the Seattle Seahawks in front of their fans.

If losing in preseason isn’t necessarily worrying, the number of penalties the Broncos have given away in the first two games will certainly be cause of concern for coach Vic Fangio.
Denver was flagged eight times against the Falcons and 15 times against the Seahawks, with 11 of those penalties being accepted. In his first season as head coach after leaving the role of defensive coordinator in Chicago, Fangio has a sizeable job on his hands as he looks to cut out the gratuitous mistakes that have cost his team valuable yards in their first two outings.
The 49ers have problems of their own after losing two players to injuries. Wide receiver Trent Taylor underwent surgery to fix a broken toe and will miss the remainder of preseason, while tackle Shon Coleman will be sidelined for the entire campaign with a broken fibula, as per The Athletic’s Matt Barrows. It is a tough blow for Coleman, who did not play last season.
