49ers training camp live updates, 8/4: The pads go on!

The San Francisco 49ers have their first padded practice of training camp on Tuesday. We've got live updates on our Twitter list.

Fooch's update: 8/4 practice recap

The San Francisco 49ers are back at practice on Tuesday, and it is an important one. The team will don full pads for the first time in training camp. Tuesday's practice kicks off at 4:15 p.m. PT.

There will be plenty of updates from practice, and so, I have embedded the 49ers media list I have on Twitter. You can follow that below throughout practice. There will not be as much tweeting during the team drills as this practice is closed to the public. The practice will likely wrap around 6:15 p.m. and I'll have a recap of the recaps after that.

The first padded practice is always a big moment, as the teams gets significant live contact for the first team. There is contact in non-padded practices, but it is very limited. Now, the defense will have more bump-and-run from the cornerbacks, and offensive and defensive linemen can really get into it. It provides a little more context to the position competitions as the first preseason game approaches in 11 days.
