Avery (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Avery played just one offensive snap last Sunday and will sit out this game entirely. He was listed as probable on the final injury report of the week, so this seems like more of a coach's decision than an injury-related absence.

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

Avery's impact has been modest since his return from sports hernia surgery, and until he re-establishes a key role in the Kansas City offense, he's off the fantasy radar.

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.

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.

Avery caught one pass for 20 yards in his season debut Sunday against the Broncos.

Avery's return gives the Chiefs a deep threat they haven't had for most of the season. Alex Smith doesn't throw the ball down field very often, but Avery will likely be the main target when he does.
