Tight end Sean McGrath reported to Chiefs training camp Wednesday with the rest of the Chiefs’ veterans.

But when those veterans took the field Thursday for the first full team practice, McGrath was nowhere to be found. McGrath also was not at practice on Friday.

On Thursday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid declined to provide specifics regarding McGrath’s absence.

“Sean is working some things out, personal things,” Reid said. “I’ll have an answer for you on that later.”

When asked if McGrath was considering retirement, Reid said, “We’ll see on that. He’s contemplating some things right now, going through some things.”

McGrath, 26, appeared in 16 games, including nine starts, for the Chiefs last season. He finished with 26 catches for 302 yards and two touchdowns.

McGrath entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Seattle in 2012. He was put on the practice squad for the 13 games before being activated in December and appearing twice for the Seahawks.
