Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid was absent from the start of the Eagles' walkthrough practice at Lehigh University on Sunday morning, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
According to the Eagles, Reid absence was due to a "personal issue".
In a press conference following the walkthrough, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman announced that Reid's son, Garrett Reid, had been found dead in his room at Lehigh University.
"He's been strong for us, we're going to be strong for him right now," Roseman said before turning the press conference over to Lehigh University's Chief of Police, who said there was no evidence of foul play.
An investigation by the coroner's office is underway. No cause of death had been determined.
"What I can tell you is this morning we were contacted by the Lehigh campus police department and (were) requested to respond for the discovery of a deceased male," Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek told the Associated Press. "We are conducting an investigation with the cooperation of the Lehigh campus police department and I personally pronounced Mr. Reid deceased at the scene."
McLane noted this morning that the last time Reid was believed to have missed a practice was when he was attending a court date for Garrett, who had been arrested on drug and weapons charges.
