Chiefs coach Andy Reid said last week he was uncertain whether Orlando Brown Jr. would report to training camp. Translation: The left tackle simply hadn’t yet told Reid officially of his plans to stay away.

Indeed, Brown will not show up at St. Joseph tonight when the entire team is due to arrive at training camp, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.

Brown’s absence was expected after he and the Chiefs were unable to reach agreement on a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline for franchise tagged players. He has not signed the one-year, $16.66 million tag, so he is not subject to fines for staying away from camp.
