It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
Avery, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Browns back in 2018. He was later traded to the Eagles last year for a 2021 fourth-round pick.
Avery is in the third of a four-year, $2.7 million rookie deal and is set to make a base salary of $660,00 for the 2020 season.
In 2020, Avery has appeared in six games for the Eagles and recorded five tackles, 1.5 sacks and a pass defense.
