Donnie Avery returned to practice Wednesday for the Indianapolis Colts, according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. Avery reportedly suffered a concussion Sunday against the New England Patriots.
There is no official word yet on Avery's playing status for this week's game against the Buffalo Bills. On the year, he has 41 receptions for 553 yards and a touchdown through 10 games played.
Fantasy Impact: Avery has yet to miss a game this season, and appears to be on his way to playing against the Bills, though you will still want to keep a sharp eye on his participation in practice this week. He has been a safe bet to see 6-8 targets per game from quarterback Andrew Luck.
The Bills secondary has been beat regularly this season, so Avery may be a better starting option this week than usual. Still, his limited upside makes him a WR3/Flex at best in most fantasy formats.
