Broncos begin joint practices with Rams today

The Denver Broncos are set to host the Los Angeles Rams for a pair of joint practices this week, beginning with Wednesday morning’s session.

The Broncos and Rams will practice behind closed doors from 10 a.m. to noon at the Centura Health Training Center in Englewood. Denver and L.A. will then face off again in practice on Thursday.

After practicing together on Wednesday and Thursday, the Broncos and Rams will likely have light walkthroughs on Friday (separately) ahead of their preseason showdown on Saturday at Empower Field at Mile High.

With his wife expecting a baby any day, L.A.’s star defensive lineman, Aaron Donald, did not make the trip to Denver this week. So Donald won’t face the Broncos in practice or in Saturday’s game. (That might be a good thing after Donald swung helmets at opponents during joint practices with the Cincinnati Bengals last summer.)

Saturday’s game will be nationally televised on NFL Network.
