Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery (groin) has been ruled out for Week 7, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: The bye week wasn't sufficient to get Avery healed up, and K.C.'s leader in WR targets (24) will miss a second straight game, meaning more looks for Dwayne Bowe, Junior Hemingway and the TE duo of Travis Kelce and Anthony Fasano.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia and will not play in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Avery is tied for the team lead in targets with 24, and his absence means A.J. Jenkins likely gets the start against his former team Sunday in San Fran. Expect more looks for WR Dwayne Bowe and rapidly emerging TE Travis Kelce as well.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery is still listed as a starter, but it remains to be seen whether he will remain atop the depth chart or even make the team. The team has high hopes for WR A.J. Jenkins, who could potentially take away some of Avery's playing time if Jenkins develops. The team also plans to draft at least one receiver, and if he is ready to help right away, Avery might be released.
Huddle Up: With only 2 TD catches and 72 total fantasy points this past season, Avery wasn't even rosterable in most fantasy leagues and that doesn't figure to change much, even if he sticks around for a second season in K.C.

The Kansas City Chiefs could release WR Donnie Avery, depending on what they do in free agency and/or the 2014 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Avery's debut season in K.C. lacked fantasy impact as he finished with only 40 catches, 2 scoring grabs and 1 100-yard game. Look for K.C. to prioritize getting a better weapon opposite Dwayne Bowe.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery (head) left the Wild Card playoff game early and is being evaluated for a concussion. He is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Avery scored a 79-yard touchdown prior to exiting the game. In his absence Junior Hemingway and A.J. Jenkins saw increased action.
