Broncos Coverage: Mile High Report
The 49ers head into Denver today to face the Broncos in a preseason week three contest. This is no simple preseason matchup to the rest of the world given the Alex Smith-Peyton Manning storyline. I would suspect Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will have a few comments about that. Hopefully they don't beat it into the ground too much.
For both teams, this is a last chance to see what the bottom end of the roster brings to the table before tomorrow's first roster cuts. Teams have until 1pm PT to cut down to 75 players. If I'm counting the 49ers roster correctly, they currently have 89 players (including injured Darius Fleming and Jewel Hampton). That means there are 14 players to be cut between now and tomorrow. Today's game gives folks at the end of the roster one last opportunity to show the coaching staff something.
