49ers play of the day for practice 15: Things finally boiled over after a relatively peaceful practice with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday. It happened when quarterback Brian Hoyer's pass intended for receiver Jeremy Kerley bounced off Kerley and into the hands of a Broncos defender. On the ensuing return, Niners receiver Pierre Garcon and Kerley started mixing it up with Broncos defensive backs including Chris Harris Jr. and it escalated into a bigger issue that took some time for the side to be separated. It was the first of a handful of skirmishes on the day.
