With the conclusion of the Chiefs’ mandatory minicamp on Thursday, coach Andy Reid addressed the status of the four players recovering from significant injuries: quarterback Tyler Bray, tight end Demetrius Harris and running back Cyrus Gray.

Reid said all three might start training camp on the physically unable to perform list, though nothing has been decided yet.

“(General manager John) Dorsey will take care of that,” Reid said. “He’s evaluating all that now.”

Bray, who tore his ACL in January and was not present during the 10 voluntary organized team activities workouts, was present at this week’s mandatory minicamp, although he did not participate.

“We brought him back just to evaluate him and give him a physical,” Reid said. “We did our physicals this past week, so he was a part of that. He sat in the meetings and we kept him in-tune, a little bit, on the offensive stuff.”

Reid said Harris (foot) and Gray (torn ACL) continue to improve. Neither player practiced at all during organized team activities.

Smith a no-show

Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was not present at practice Thursday. He was present on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“Sean had a personal matter that he had to deal with,” Reid said. “He was excused for that.”

Wilson warms up

Receiver Albert Wilson, who is recovering from a strained hamstring, went through warm ups for the second straight day but did not practice. He did not practice on Tuesday, the first day of mandatory minicamp.

He originally strained the hamstring during the Chiefs’ fifth OTA practice on June 3.
