Denver Broncos- The Broncos have placed their Director of Video Operations on leave while the NFL investigates whether the team broke league rules by filming the San Francisco 49ers' walk-through in London last month.
The Broncos confirmed a report in the Denver Post on Saturday, telling The Associated Press that Steve Scarnecchia is on a "personal leave of absence." Scarnecchia and Broncos coach Josh McDaniels previously worked for the New England Patriots, who were found to have videotaped New York Jets coaches sending in signals during a game four years ago. The NFL bans such videotaping, and issued $750,000 in fines against the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick. The league did not immediately reply to an email from the AP.
The Broncos will host the St. Louis Rams Sunday afternoon. We'll have the game for you live on AM 1410 KWYO beginning at 1 o'clock with the pregame. Kick off is slated for shortly after 2pm.
