No, they don't. Some teams obviously devote more practice time to it than others. The Patriots practice it, and study film about how to force and recover fumbles, everyday single day at practice.
The Broncos don't do that.
When Shanahan was coaching the Broncos during the Superbowl years, the Defense was supposed to try to strip the ball from fellow Broncos Offensive players during plays (in practice), after plays, walking back to the huddle, and in the locker room.
