DENVER -- Rookie defensive tackle Nick Eason returned to the Denver Broncos training camp on Thursday after disappearing for two days, but neither he nor coach Mike Shanahan would talk about his absence.

Eason was unavailable for comment. Shanahan met with him Thursday afternoon but declined to talk about what was said until after speaking with the team.

"I had a good conversation with him. We had a lengthy visit and he is all right," Shanahan said.

Eason participated in the first four days of camp but didn't show up Tuesday or Wednesday and didn't tell team officials where he was.

Gene Krcelic, one of Eason's agents, has said Eason was dealing with personal problems.

"I can't get into it much more than that right now," Krcelic said Wednesday.

Eason, one of Denver's three fourth-round draft picks, is expected be a backup after being drafted out of Clemson with the 114th overall pick.
