Donnie Avery Out 4-6 Weeks

Rotoworld lets us know that Rams wide receiver Donnie Avery has a sprained foot that'll keep him out for 4-6 weeks.

They note that sprained feet tend to linger; a good example would be Arnaz Battle last year, who sprained his foot in Week 9 and never made it back onto the field. Deion Branch sprained his foot in Week 5 of the 2007 season in a game against the Steelers and missed five weeks; he averaged 86 yards per game in the four games before the injury (110 if you don't include the Steelers game that he was injured in), but only 53 yards per game in the six games he participated in after his return.

Sooooo... KUBIAK's optimism going to be reduced a little I'd imagine?

aaarrrrgggghhh. Drafted him at the weekend. thought I'd got myself a steal. Bernard Berrian's or Nate Burleson are about to get an early promotion to the starting line up.
