The 49ers will participate in joint practices with the Denver Broncos prior to their Aug. 29 exhibition game in Denver, the 49ers confirmed on Thursday.
The final details are still being worked out, but the Broncos announced the clubs would practice against each other on the Wednesday and Thursday before the Saturday night game.
The 49ers last summer had practices against the Baltimore Ravens after the teams met in the first week of the exhibition season. The practices took place at the Ravens’ practice facility in Owings Mills, Maryland, and featured no issues with fighting or escalated emotions.
First-year Broncos coach Gary Kubiak was the Ravens' offensive coordinator last season. Kubiak and 49ers coach Jim Tomsula have likely been in direct contract, working out the plan for the two days of practices.
The Broncos hold training camp at their Dove Valley team headquarters, where the practices will take place.
The practices will not be open to the public, the Broncos announced, as they will take place after the official conclusion of training camp.
