The San Francisco 49ers are in Houston and ready to get started on a valuable part of training camp. The team is conducting a pair of joint practices with the Houston Texans in advance of Saturday’s preseason contest. It provides the two sides with some new competition, and for the 49ers offensive line in particular, a chance to face off against the Texans ferocious defensive front.
Practice gets going at 7:15 a.m. PT today, and will be followed by media availability. The session is expected to last two hours, after which Kyle Shanahan and players will likely be made available. The 49ers will stream the press conferences on their website, and you can also watch it on Periscope and the team’s app.
The 49ers beat writers will also have updates from the media sessions. I’ve embedded our beat writer Twitter list so you can follow along. Jennifer Chan will be on hand for today’s practice, and you can follower her for updates.
