Eagles' Genard Avery: Packs bags for Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns traded Avery to the Eagles in exchange for an 2021 fourth-round draft pick Monday.

Avery suited up in just two games for the Browns this year, playing five total defensive snaps and making one tackle. He was far more productive last year, averaging 43 defensive snaps per game en route to 40 tackles and 4.5 sacks. That experience could allow the Eagles to leverage Avery into a useful depth asset while also deploying him on special teams.

Browns' Genard Avery: Back practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery (ankle) has returned to full participation in practice, Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Avery missed a little over a week of action due to his ankle injury but he appears to be fully recovered. He recorded a virtual sack in Thursday's practice session and has resumed his role as a starting linebacker.

Browns' Genard Avery: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery (ankle) missed Saturday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Avery has missed every practice since July 28 with this injury. It's unclear how much longer it'll keep him sidelined.

Browns' Genard Avery: Misses practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery sat out Sunday's practice with an ankle injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

It's unclear how severe the ankle injury is or how much longer it'll keep Avery sidelined. The 24-year-old logged 40 tackles (30 solo), 4.5 sacks, four pass breakups and a forced fumble over 16 games last season.

Browns' Genard Avery: Potential starter in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager John Dorsey mentioned Avery as an option to start at linebacker in 2019, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

The Browns' decision to let Jamie Collins walk in free agency created a void that needs to be filled considering Collins logged over 1,000 defensive snaps last year. After logging nearly 700 defensive snaps of his own as a rookie fifth-rounder, Avery currently seems like the favorite to take Collins' spot in the starting lineup. That could change if Cleveland takes an outside linebacker early in the draft, though whoever ultimately ends up with the first-stringers come Week 1 will undoubtedly benefit from an absolutely loaded Browns defensive line that could consistently keep opposing offensive lineman from reaching the second level.

Browns' Genard Avery: Participates in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Avery, who dealt with numerous injuries throughout the preseason, was able to fully practice this week. However, with Christian Kirksey and Joe Schobert available, it's unclear how much playing time Avery will receive, even if the rookie is able to suit up for Sunday's season opener against Pittsburgh.

Browns' Genard Avery: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery (hip) participated in Monday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Avery suffered a hip injury during Cleveland's preseason matchup with the Eagles on Aug. 23 and hasn't been able to practice. However, his quick recovery bodes well for his status for Week 1 against Pittsburgh, though it remains to be seen how often the rookie will be used behind Christian Kirksey and Joe Schobert -- both of whom played every snap for the Browns in 2017.

Browns' Genard Avery: Nursing hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery is dealing with a hip injury, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Head coach Hue Jackson said that Avery will miss "some time" due to the injury, but did not rule the 2018 fifth-rounder out for Week 1. Avery has repeatedly earned praise throughout the preseason, and he's expected to contribute within Cleveland's loaded linebacker corps this season. Jermaine Grace and B.J. Bello should see increased snaps in Avery's absence.

Browns' Genard Avery: Return questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery suffered a hamstring injury and is questionable to return to Thursday's game against Philadelphia.

Avery was forced to exit in the third quarter of Thursday's game, recording two tackles, including a sack, prior to his departure. The specifics of his injury are unclear, and the team may rest him for the remainder of the came as a precautionary measure. Look for Jermaine Grace and B.J. Bello to get a few extra snaps with Avery sidelined.

Browns' Genard Avery: Returns for second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery logged one tackle during Friday's preseason game against the Bills.

Avery seems to be over the groin injury that forced him to miss the Browns' preseason opener. The fifth-round rookie is competing for a depth role in advance of the 2018 campaign, but snaps could be hard to come by in Cleveland's loaded linebacker corps.

Browns' Genard Avery: Out for Thursday's preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery (groin) will miss Thursday's preseason opener against the Giants, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Avery returned to practice Monday after previously missing time due to a groin issue, but it appears he's not out of the woods yet. His next opportunity to state his case for a depth role at linebacker arrives next Friday against the Bills.

Browns' Genard Avery: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery (groin) returned to Browns practice on Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Avery missed a week of practice due to a groin injury, but the fifth-round rookie appears to have recovered fully. Linebacker remains one of Cleveland's deepest positions, so Avery will continue working to establish himself in a depth role.

Browns' Genard Avery: Nursing groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery missed Monday's practice due to a groin injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The extent of Avery's injury isn't clear, and it isn't certain when he'll return to the field. The fifth-round rookie is competing for a depth role at middle linebacker behind entrenched starter Joe Schobert.
