Preseason football is filled with gaffes. Coaches want to get young, inexperienced players enough playing time to adequately evaluate them, veterans are rusty, and the wins and losses don’t count, so it’s really not that big of a deal. The 49ers and Broncos, though, took preseason football to a whole new level with not one, not two, but three fumbles in the 45 seconds before the half.
On fumble one, Mark Sanchez got sacked by Tank Carradine, and Sanchez lost the ball in the red zone.

The hits kept coming for Williams when he was hit with a four-game suspension in July for violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
When training camp rolled around in August, Williams still hadn’t shed the extra pounds. Unable to pass a conditioning test, Williams started training camp on the Non-Football Illness list until he finally passed the test and was cleared to practice on Monday.
