Tight end Demetrius Harris and inside linebacker Ramik Wilson did not practice Wednesday due to injuries.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Harris, who underwent a second foot surgery in the spring, is still recovering and will begin training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list.

“He had surgery on his foot and he’s coming back from that,” Reid said. “He’s made great progress from that and we’ll just see how he does.”

Reid said Wilson, a fourth-round pick out of Georgia, suffered a back strain while training during the players’ month-long break and is currently on the non-football injury (NFI) list.

“We’re going to let that calm down for a couple days,” Reid said. “He did that in his workouts getting here.”

Reid said quarterback Tyler Bray, who suffered an ACL injury in January, is also on the NFI list, but is still undergoing testing to determine his potential return to the field.

“Tyler Bray is actually doing some work out here today with the trainers, and we’re trying to get him on the field doing this part of his physical exam,” Reid said. “He’s on NFI now but we’re going to see where he’s at and see if he can progress and get off it.”

Etc.

Rookie third-round pick Chris Conley left practice early Wednesday. Reid said Conley, a receiver, had a knee strain, but there were more tests pending.

“We’ll check and see exactly what it is here,” Reid said.
