GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) -- Cincinnati Bengals running back Corey Dillon was the only player under contract that failed to report to the team's opening day of training camp Sunday.

"We haven't heard from him," said head coach Marvin Lewis at the camp at Georgetown College. "We hope and presume he's OK."

Dillon didn't show up for the team's 5 p.m. meeting and he and his agent could not be immediately reached. The Bengals did not say if Dillon would be fined.

In April, Dillon also caused a stir when he skipped a voluntary minicamp to spend time with family. After promising to act differently in the future, Dillon practiced with the team in May and June.

Dillon is the team's career rushing leader and only the fourth player in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons.
