Broncos bogged down by poor special teams play

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Broncos coach Vic Fangio is absolving left tackle Garett Bolles of his latest infraction, a holding penalty that wiped out a 45-yard catch by Emmanuel Sanders against the 49ers, but he has no excuse for Denver's continued dismal special teams performances.

Fangio said Wednesday that the Broncos won't bring in another quarterback after rookie Drew Lock sprained the thumb on his throwing hand, which is expected to sideline him into the regular season. That leaves incumbent Kevin Hogan as Joe Flacco's backup.

The big blemishes in Denver's 24-15 preseason loss Monday night were Lock's injury, the holding call on Bolles and more bad plays on special teams, including Nick Williams' muffed punt that went off his chest and 49ers kick returner Richie James Jr.'s 40-yard average on two returns.
