KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs wrapped up organized team activities Friday without running back Jamaal Charles.

But there is no reason for concern surrounding Charles’ absence.

“It’s a voluntary camp,” coach Andy Reid said. “Jamaal was excused; he has a camp today.”

Defensive lineman Vaughn Martin (ankle) and wide receiver Albert Wilson (hamstring) did not practice, while offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif missed a second straight practice with an illness.

Martin and Wilson were present on the field without their helmets.

Running back Charcandrick West left practice with what Reid called a “stinger.”

“I’ll know more as we go there,” Reid said of West.

Defensive tackle Dontari Poe (back) participated in warm-ups, but did not participate in individual position drills and practice.

Inside linebacker Derrick Johnson (knee) participated in warm-ups and individual position drills.

Inside linebacker Dee Ford, who was excused from Thursday’s practice for personal reasons, returned Friday.

Also practicing was wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who missed Wednesday’s practice with inflammation to his foot.
