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.

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.

Avery (groin) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Avery is out there for the first time since Week 4, though a wait-and-see approach is in order in most cases, given the Chiefs' run-first approach.

Avery (groin) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.

The probable designation suggests that Avery has a pretty good chance to return this week, though a wait-and-see approach is in order, given that coach Andy Reid has yet to confirm Avery's Week 13 availability. "There's a chance," Reid said with regard to Avery being active Sunday. "He's practiced this week and he looked pretty good this week. We'll see how things go."

Avery (groin) was limited at practice Thursday, BJ Kissel of KCChiefs.com reports.

We'll have to see how the Chiefs officially list Avery on Friday, but coach Andy Reid indicated Wednesday that Avery "has a pretty good shot" to play Sunday night against the Broncos, a notion that would be solidified by a probable injury designation upon the release of the team's Week 13 injury report.

Coach Andy Reid indicated Wednesday that Avery, who has missed the last seven games following sports hernia surgery, "has a pretty good shot" to play Sunday against the Broncos, the Kansas City Star reports.

Per ESPN's Adam Teicher, Avery practiced fully Wednesday, though a wait-and-see approach is in order in most cases, considering the Chiefs' run-first approach.

Avery (groin) won't play Thursday against the Raiders, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.com.

A.J. Jenkins won't play either, which sets the stage for the Chiefs' Week 12 receiving corps to be headed by Dwayne Bowe, who caught two passes for 18 yards this past Sunday, with the likes of Frankie Hammond and Junior Hemingway also potentially in the mix.

Avery (groin) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' website reports.

It's not clear how much work Avery was able to get in Tuesday, but he did more than he did the day before, when he was listed as a non-participant. Avery sat out last week despite getting in a few limited practices, so his status for this week's game remains in question despite him taking the field Tuesday.
