Avril (not injury related) is active Sunday against the Ravens. Avril missed the first two days of practice this week, but that was likely maintenance-related, as he logged a full day of work Friday. The pass rushing specialist did not record a tackle after playing just 37 snaps Week 13, but had collected four total sacks in the three games prior to that outing.
