Notes: Avery has a bruised shoulder and will be evaluated this week. … Fisher is still recovering from a concussion. … Pro Bowl LB Justin Houston took “a shot to the neck and head and everything else there,” Reid said. “He seems to be OK.” … TEs Anthony Fasano (ankle) and Travis Kelce (knee) are still dealing with injuries. “Making progress,” Reid said.
