49ers camp schedule features Texans, Broncos joint practices and early starts

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers officially unveiled their training camp schedule on Thursday afternoon, with a pair of joint practice sessions before preseason games on the docket.

The 49ers will have a joint practice with the Houston Texans on Aug. 12, two days before the teams meet in the preseason opener. The following week, the 49ers will travel to practice with the Denver Broncos on Aug. 17 and 18 before playing the Broncos in the second exhibition contest on Aug. 20.

With new coach Chip Kelly steering the ship, the 49ers will also have a bit of a departure from the recent past with morning start times set for each of the practices during the first two weeks of camp. Kelly's first 12 practices are slated to begin at 10:25 a.m. PT with run times of somewhere between 60 and 120 minutes, depending on the day.

Kelly has long been a proponent of working fast and efficient. The early starts should ensure that players aren't at the facility until all hours of the night as some other teams might be during camp.

Fans hoping to get a glimpse of the team before the start of the season will get a chance to do so on Aug. 10, when the team practices at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco. That event is already sold out, according to the team's website.

Here's a quick rundown of the 49ers' schedule for the next couple of weeks:
