Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery (ankle) injured his ankle during organized team activities Tuesday, May 14, and has been limited the past few days.
Huddle Up: This doesn't help the cause of the free-agent signee who is battling Jonathan Baldwin and Terrance Copper for the Chiefs' No. 2 WR job.

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Donnie Avery. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Kansas City's receiving corps was in dire need of a makeover, and Avery gives the Chiefs a speed guy to go along with Dwayne Bowe. Andy Reid has culled productivity from lesser talents, so if Avery can stay healthy he's an intriguing low-end fantasy option in 2013.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donnie Avery (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Avery tailed off in a big way last week (3 catches for 31 yards) following his 5-91-2 TD showing in Week 13, but it should be noted that performance was the exception rather than the rule for Avery, whose only other TD catch this season came way back in the season opener.

Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson would reportedly like to keep WR Donnie Avery on the team next season after he is in the midst of a career season.
Huddle Up: Avery has failed to catch more than 50% of the balls he has been targeted on this season, and terribly inconsistent from a fantasy perspective. Partially due to a rookie QB and not much talent outside the skill positions. But the numbers aren't a ringing endorsement for Avery becoming anything special.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donnie Avery (concussion) suffered a concussion in the Week 11 game against the New England Patriots. He was unable to return. Avery finished with three receptions for 34 yards.
Huddle Up: Avery sustained the injury in the first half, robbing rookie QB Andrew Luck of one of his top targets. Avery will have to clear the post-concussion hurdles this week to be able to play in Week 12.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donnie Avery (hip) and RB Donald Brown (knee) are both active for the team's Week 10 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Nov. 8.
Huddle Up: Adjust your starting lineups accordingly as both figure to play and share in the targets and touches.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donnie Avery (hip) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Avery should be good to go this week. He has been a great contributor for Andrew Luck and the Colts, a sneake

Indianapolis Colts WR Donnie Avery (hip) participated in practice Tuesday, Nov. 6, and there is a chance he will play in the team's Week 10 game. It's expected to come down to a game-time decision Thursday night, according to coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: Avery led the Colts this past Sunday with 108 yards on 5 catches, but if he can't go, bump up the values of Reggie Wayne and rookie T.Y. Hilton.

Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said he has liked WR Donnie Avery since he entered the league and is happy with how he has performed so far this season. "I had him rated as the highest receiver coming out of the draft that year. Sometimes hard luck hits a guy, injuries, he's not in the right system, but ever since he's been here, his confidence has grown, his speed is back, he's healthy. It hasn't been a surprise to me. It might be a surprise to him. I think the sky is the limit for this guy. He's still young. I think we've got a diamond," Arians said.
Huddle Up: Staying healthy has always been the bugaboo with Avery. Healthy, with his speed back, he's a quality second target for Andrew Luck--and a fantasy contributor so long as he's able to continue ducking the injury bug.

Indianapolis Colts WR Donnie Avery has been one of the bright spots of the team's offseason program and organized team activities (OTAs). Avery has shown impressive speed.
Huddle Up: Avery is an injury-marred journeyman who still has major quicks when healthy. He could actually end up being the Colts No. 3 WR behind Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie. Avery's competition reads like a UFL roster: LaVon Brazill, Jeremy Ross, Jabin Sambrano, and Ty Hilton.
