Avery will be released by the Chiefs, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.With the decision expected to save them $3.4 million against the 2015 cap, the Chiefs probably didn't have a hard time with this one. The team is badly in need of superior talent at wide receiver, as Avery will likely get attention from interested teams as merely a third, fourth or fifth option at the position.

Avery was inactive for the season finale against the Chargers.

Avery began the season as the Chiefs' number two receiver, but the combination of a groin injury and poor performance upon return knocked him out of the active lineup in favor of Albert Wilson. While he came into 2014 locked into the no. 2 spot after 40 receptions for 596 yards and two touchdowns in 2013, the veteran wideout will now have to compete to earn back his spot ahead of the rookie in Wilson. Avery finished his disappointing 2014 campaign with 15 receptions for 176 yards and no touchdowns.

Avery played just one offensive snap Sunday against the Cardinals.

Avery was previously dealing with a groin injury, but was active for the second week in a row Sunday. Albert Wilson saw most of the offensive snaps, indicating either that Avery is still injured or that he has fallen out of favor in Kansas City. The injury report and next Sunday's game against the Raiders should provide a little more clarity on the situation.

Avery (groin) is active for Sunday's game at Arizona, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

The outing marks Avery's second in a row following a lengthy absence due to sports hernia surgery. However, Alex Smith has yet to connect with a wideout for a touchdown this season, making his limited usage untenable for fantasy purposes.

Avery (groin) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, the Chiefs' official site reports.

With just one catch on two targets for 20 yards in his return to action last week, Avery is off the fantasy radar until he starts seeing more targets from QB Alex Smith.

Avery (groin) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Chiefs' official site reports.

With no reported setbacks in his return to action in Week 13, we suspect that Avery's limitations Wednesday were maintenance-related, though with just one catch this past Sunday, he's a speculative play in Week 14, in any case.
