ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Alvin Kamara Womens Jersey . -- A couple of fights broke out, the Broncos suffered another key injury and ongoing quarterback questions for Denver and the San Francisco 49ers marked the joint practice Wednesday ahead of the exhibition game Saturday night between the teams.Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe sustained a left ankle injury while pass rushing during 11-on-11 scrimmaging against the 49ers first-team offense. He limped off the field to the locker room, leaning on team trainers walking on either side of him.Coach Gary Kubiak said after practice that Wolfe rolled his ankle. There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury.Thats scary, especially with Vance going down, Broncos safety T.J. Ward said. I hope hes all right, but, man, that was a tough one.On Monday, the Broncos lost starting defensive end Vance Walker to a season-ending knee injury. Walker tore his right ACL during team drills when he became entangled with a pass blocker.The controlled scrimmaging between the teams, played out before a large crowd on hand for the last Broncos practice open to the public, included some heated moments between Denvers offensive units and the 49ers defensive units. Twice, the sides got into it, fighting and shoving and grabbing each other, though a combination of players and coaches from both teams quickly got the scrums under control.There were a couple of situations, Kubiak said. Its usually when they start talking too much. Thats what usually causes things, not so much the football.The fights notwithstanding, Kubiak said the joint practice was beneficial for both teams.Thats real football, what you saw today, he said. A lot of things going on, a lot of competition.Quarterback Christian Ponder practiced for the first time since signing Tuesday with the 49ers, whose passer corps has been depleted by injury.Ponder was released by the Raiders in training camp last year and did not play last season but offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins expressed confidence Ponder would get a handle quickly on the 49ers scheme.Hell be fine, Modkins said. Hes smart. Hes athletic. Hell be able to do things that we ask him to do and I expect to catch-up to speed pretty quickly.San Francisco lost backup quarterback Thad Lewis to a season-ending knee injury Sunday in the exhibition opener against Houston.Colin Kaepernick, who has not been throwing any passes in practice since Thursday because of tightness in his right shoulder, was on the practice field for mental reps and took three running-play snaps, handing off every time. His competition with Blaine Gabbert for the starting job is on hold.After practice, Kaepernick, who met with Broncos general manager John Elway and Kubiak last spring about possibly coming to Denver in a trade, stopped to sign autographs for fans and even posed with one for a selfie.Gabbert was 4 of 7 in team drills and his last pass was intercepted by Broncos rookie safety Justin Simmons.Broncos defenders ended up picking off passes from each of the 49ers succeeding quarterbacks during the 11-on-11 session. Cornerback Lorenzo Doss intercepted a deflected pass by the 49ers Jeff Driskel, and cornerback Kayvon Webster made a diving interception along the sideline of Ponder.The Broncos quarterback competition among Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch remains unresolved though Kubiak has hinted a decision is coming soon. Whenever it happens, it wont be easy.Its a tough, tough decision for us, Kubiak said. But thats a good thing because theyre doing their job.Game notes Broncos tight end Jeff Heuerman was not able to finish practice because of tightness in his hamstrings. ... Sanchez completed a deep pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders for a touchdown during team drills against the 49ers defense, bringing a roar from the partisan crowd, which numbered about 5,000. ... Kaepernick signed autographs and interacted with fans for about 20 minutes. ... The teams get together for another joint practice on Thursday.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Bobby Hebert Jersey . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.

Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korvers school record for 3-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. Luke Woodcocks 98, and a half-century from captain Michael Papps helped Wellington chase down 275 with six wickets to spare for a win in their opening game of the 2016-17 season of the Plunket Shield against defending champions Auckland. With his 57 in the second innings, Papps became the first player to score 10,000 runs in New Zealands first-class competition. This after he had become the 25th New Zealand batsman to register 10,000 overall first-class runs in the 2014-15 season.It is a bit of a milestone for all players, and when you play for a long time, it is something you aspire to and its nice to tick that off, since only 25 New Zealanders have done it, Papps said after the game. I think the first to get to 10,000 Plunket Shield runs is a special thing, too. Its obviously a prestigious competition and its been going on for a long time now. And to be the first person to get to 10,000 is a real honour.Woodcock and Papps opening partnership of 106 ensured a comfortable chase for Wellington. Woodcock took the lead, scoring 11 fours and a six in his 235 ball-knock, before falling two runs short of a century with the target only 10 runs away.Another key player for Wellington was seamer Brent Arnel, who had match returns of 8 for 104, with four-fors in both innings. Arnel carved out Aucklands middle order in the first innings, after they had opted to bat, taking four wickets to reduce them to 173 for 7 from 151 for 3, after which they were bowled out for 269. In the second innings, he paired with Jeetan Patel, who took 4 for 76, to ensure that Aucklands score was limited to 278, leaving Wellington with 275 to win.Wellington had managed a first-innings lead of four runs, their first innings score of 273 propped up solely by Stephen Murdochs 109 and Tom Blundells supporting 42. Aucklands fast bowler Lachie Ferguson took the only five-for of the match, which included Murdochs wicket.Auckland were let down by their batsmen in both innings. In the first, openers Michael Guptill-Bunce (50) and Jeet Raval (47) gave the side a good start but the middle order failed to build on that. They reached 269 thanks to a tenth-wicket partnership of 70 runs between Dane Hutchinson (48) and Ferguson. The lower order rescued Auckland again in the second innings as the last three wickets added 121 runs to lift them from 157 for 7. Hutchinson (38) was a key contributor, along with Tarun Nethula (39) and Donovan Grobbelaar (40).Scott Kugggeleijns career-best 6 for 60 proved decisive in Northern Districts five-wicket win over Canterbury. Michael Thomas Womens Jersey. Kuggeleijns six-for skittled Canterbury out for 165 in the second innings, leaving Northern Districts with a target of 196, which they achieved on the fourth day in Christchurch. It also helped him finish with a career-best match haul of 9 for 190.Todd Astles 195 had led Canterburys recovery in the first innings, helping them post 445 after they were struggling at 60 for 4 at one stage. Tim Johnston (66) and Kyle Jamieson (40) supported Astles effort at No. 8 and 9 respectively. Kuggeleijn took 3 for 130 while seamers James Baker and Zac Gibson took two wickets each.Northern Districts fell 30 runs short of Canterburys total, following a middle-order slump that somewhat negated the 174-run opening stand between Daniel Flynn and Dean Brownlie, who scored 104. Northern Districts lost five wickets for 58 runs in the middle stages, reaching 248 for 6, before the lower order rallied around captain Tim Seifert (81) and pushed the score past 400.Kuggeleijn then struck twice on the third evening to leave Canterbury at 93 for 4 at stumps, and came back on the fourth morning to plough his way through the lower order. He plucked four of the last five Canterbury wickets, including two in the 41st over, to end their innings ten overs into the final day. Northern Districts lost a few wickets in their chase but were eventually shepherded by Daryl Mitchells unbeaten 51. Otago captain Brad Wilson struck a century in each innings in a high-scoring draw against Central Districts. Wilson was the first batsman to do so for Otago since Aaron Redmonds twin centuries against Canterbury in the 2012-13 season.Wilsons 111 and 117 not out were complemented by his opening partner Hamish Rutherfords knocks of 143 and 73. The pair added 227 runs in the first innings to set up Otagos total of 479 for 5 declared, with contributions from Neil Broom (93) and Josh Finnie (56).Central Districts responded with a score of 365 for 5 declared, built on opener Greg Hays 136 and half-centuries from Mitch Renwick (57) and Tom Bruce (78). Otago then stretched their 114-run lead to 352 by stumps on the fourth day, scoring 238 for 2 in the second innings, after Rutherford and Wilson had added 133 in their opening stand. ' ' '
