  • Colts' Genard Avery: Lands on IR

    The Colts placed Avery (knee) on injured reserve Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Avery requires surgery to address a season-ending knee injury involving the LCL and meniscus. The veteran defensive end inked with Indianapolis in early June, but he will now need to set his sights on making a recovery for the 2024 campaign.

  • Colts' Genard Avery: Headed to Indianapolis

    Avery (abdomen) agreed to terms with the Colts on Thursday, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    After missing the final four games of the 2022 NFL season with an abdomen injury, Avery must be healthy or close to it once again due to his signing. Throughout his five-year career, the veteran defensive end has tallied 106 tackles and 8.5 sacks while also being an experienced special teamer.

  • Buccaneers' Genard Avery: Lands on IR

    Avery (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Scott Smith of Tampa Bay's official site reports.

    Avery suffered an injury to his abdomen in Week 14 and has been sidelined since. He'll now miss the rest of the regular season, but he could return in the postseason should the Buccaneers advance to the divisional round. Anthony Nelson should get all the snaps he can handle at outside linebacker in the absence of Avery.

  • Buccaneers' Genard Avery: Joins active roster

    The Buccaneers signed Avery to their 53-man roster Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official website reports.

    Avery arrived in Tampa Bay during the latter portion of August but ultimately failed to make it through final roster cuts. He subsequently landed on its practice squad but actually suited up for the season-opening victory over Dallas, seeing 16 special teams snaps. He then reverted back to the practice unit until getting called up again Tuesday. He'll likely see a primary special teams role in the Bucs' Week 6 matchup with Pittsburgh.

  • Genard Avery: Let go Tuesday

    Avery was cut by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Avery initially signed with Tampa Bay on a one-year, $1.04 million deal last week after being dropped by Pittsburgh two days prior. The 27-year-old linebacker played 35 games over the past three seasons with the Eagles, and he will likely look to catch on in a reserve role with a new team this regular season.

  • Buccaneers' Genard Avery: Signs with Buccaneers

    Avery signed with the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 27-year-old was just released by the Steelers on Tuesday, but given Avery's solid body of work last season in Philadelphia, it's unsurprising he found a new home in short order. Avery finished the 2021 campaign with the Eagles having amassed a career-high 43 tackles over 16 games (12 starts), and he should serve as solid outside linebacker depth for the Buccaneers if he sticks on the final 53-man roster.

    Avery suffered a groin injury in practice Monday, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.
