Tennessee Titans edge rusher Vic Beasley Jr. will report to training camp after already missing the opening two days of COVID-19 testing without permission.

"I have been in contact with Vic, he is not here, he understands his absence is unexcused, and he told me he will be reporting to camp in the near future," general manager Jon Robinson said Thursday in a statement. "Our current focus is on the players that are here now, getting everyone acclimated to the protocols, our building, and our football program. We will have the same acclimation process with Vic when he reports."

Beasley, who signed a one-year, $9.5-million contract with Tennessee in March, was an unexplained no-show to begin camp. The Titans placed him on the reserve/did not report list Tuesday, and he is subject to $50,000 fines for every day he misses.

The 28-year-old reportedly never communicated his absence to the Titans as the rest of the team assembled in Nashville.

Beasley was the eighth overall pick of the Atlanta Falcons in 2015. He led the NFL with 15.5 sacks in 2016, but he's picked up just 18 since.
