    CBS post Avery makes early return

    From CBS:

    Donnie Avery, WR STL
    News: St. Louis Rams wide receiver Donnie Avery had been expected to miss up to the first two weeks of the season with a left foot stress fracture, but was back on the practice field Tuesday. "Like I tell my teammates, you know, I run fast but I heal faster," Avery joked after the workout at Rams Park, where he appeared on his way to a quick recovery. Avery was hurt during an Aug. 7 night scrimmage when a defensive back landed on his foot. After doing some individual drills Monday, Avery jumped into the team drills Tuesday.
    Analysis: Avery became the Rams' No. 1 receiver after Torry Holt left through free agency. He burst on the scene last year after being bothered early by a hip injury. His speed forced defenses to account for him, and he had 53 catches for 674 yards and three touchdowns. On Tuesday, it looked like Avery didn't miss a step. In working with the reserves during a red zone drill, Avery made a great catch in the corner of the end zone by leaping and stretching his arms to haul in the ball and then getting his feet down in bounds. "Yeah, my hands still work," Avery said. "My feet still work."

    E X C E L L E N T! As long as he and his coaches are absolutely sure that he is, in effect, healing before expected.

    Thanks DD for the good news!

    Great news for the offense. This shows what kind of character he is.

    You know Spags won't let him go if he's not ready. When I see him on the field, the coaches know he's ready and Donnie knows he's ready.

    That's great news! We need him back, I just hope he's 100% when he returns.

    Great way of putting it Moose. It's the preseason, both the trainers and the coaches wouldn't let him out there unless they were sure he was ready.

    DA's also right, he might be fast but his healing is even faster! I wonder if he laughed when he was told he might miss the start of the regular season? He got over a 4-6 week injury in 3 weeks, that's just awesome! Now just don't re-injure it!

    Avery's 'run fast, but heal faster' is a classic line.

    Watching Robinson play may have helped him heal faster too.

    That's fuuny.

    From what I've read, Avery has not been cleared to play just yet and is not expected to play against Cincy. Avery himself has said he'll play in the season opener, guaranteed.

    Even if he's fit, I wouldn't play him until the season opener for sure... If they do then they're stoooopid!

    Yeah, I wouldn't expect him to play at all tonight, though I'll be watching his facebook page just in case he spills the beans. If Bulger was playing and he could get some reps in with him, I would say they might let himtest the foot out, but with what seems to be another sub par offensive line and Boller in as opposed to Bulger, it wouldn't make sense to risk further injury. They'll keep him shelved until the opener for certain.
