Los Angeles Rams running back Tre Mason has not yet reported for mandatory team training camp, and on Monday head coach Jeff Fischer said the team is worried about the 22-year-old’s well-being.
“I haven’t personally spoken with Tre since the season ended,” Fisher told the media, according to CBS Sports. “I tried numerous times to reach him. Tre has made a decision not to communicate with us, not to talk. Not talking to his teammates. Right now we’re more concerned about Tre Mason’s well-being than we are his football career.”
The Rams aren’t the only ones who don’t know where Mason is:

In March, Mason was tasered by police and was arrested on charges of reckless driving, marijuana possession, and resisting arrest. According to TMZ, he has allegedly had four encounters with police in the last five months. Deadspin notes that during the most recent encounter with police, on July 23, Mason’s mother said that her son was “acting unusual.”
According to the report, filed by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office … cops say Tre’s mother had called because her son was “acting unusual and making irrational statements.”
When Tre saw the cops, he threatened to call the White House and have them all fired — and made bizarre statements about Al Qaeda … so says the report.
Mason was drafted out of Auburn by the Rams in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
