ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs are still talking with the agent for No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher, but the right tackle has yet to sign a contract and has not reported to training camp.

Rookies, quarterbacks and injured players reported to the Chiefs' camp headquarters on the campus of Missouri Western on Monday, giving them a few days of extra work before the full squad reports on Thursday. The first full practice is Friday.

It's unclear when Fisher will join the mix, though coach Andy Reid said that GM John Dorsey and Fisher's agent, Joel Segal, were talking.

A rookie wage scale introduced in the latest collective-bargaining agreement took much of the drama out of rookie contract negotiations. Still, Reid said he's not surprised the negotiations with Fisher are ongoing.
