Pro Bowl pass rusher Justin Houston was a no-show Tuesday on the first day of the Kansas City Chiefs' mandatory three-day minicamp.
Houston, who is entering the final year of his contract, also skipped three weeks of voluntary workouts.
He is due to make about $1.4 million this season.
In other news, tight end Travis Kelce, wide receiver Kyle Williams and cornerback David Van Dyke did individual workouts but were mostly limited.
Kelce is coming off knee surgery, Williams a torn ACL and Van Dyke a hamstring injury.
Cornerback Sean Smith was absent with an illness, and rookie running back De'Anthony Thomas appeared to overheat in the hot, humid weather.
He spent several minutes slumped in the shade before being escorted to the locker room.
