Avery intends to switch from defensive end to linebacker in 2021, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Avery only has handled about 150 defensive snaps across 19 games with the Eagles over the last two seasons, but perhaps he can be more productive at linebacker. The positional shift could allow him more opportunities to rack up tackles, but until Avery is able to earn more consistent playing time, he won't be worth much fantasy consideration in IDP formats. The 25-year-old is entering the final year of his rookie deal, making 2021 a pivotal season in his career.
Avery (elbow) was activated from injured reserve Monday. The 25-year-old received the return designation last week and apparently looked good during his first week of practice since late October. Avery should return to his rotational role on the defensive line for Philadelphia.
Avery (elbow) has been activated to the Eagles' 21-day practice window, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Eagles will now have three weeks to decide if they want to bring the defensive end back to the active roster. If that is the case, they will need to clear a roster spot for Avery. In six games this season, Avery has recorded five tackles, 1.5 sacks and a pass defensed.
Avery (lower body) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report. Avery suffered a lower body injury during the late portions of training camp, but he's returned to full health to kick off the regular season. He's slated to handle a reserve role at defensive end against Washington on Sunday.
Avery was carted off the field at Wednesday's practice due to a right knee or leg injury, Reuben Frank and Dave Zangaro of NBCSports Philadelphia report. The details of Avery's injury remain undisclosed, but at this point it looks like a significant issue is within the realm of possibilities. He played a depth role in eight games for the Eagles in 2019, while also suiting up for two contests in Cleveland.
