KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs will have to wait at least another week for wide receiver Donnie Avery’s return.

The Chiefs list Avery (groin), cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring) and linebacker Jerry Franklin (hamstring) as out for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Avery, who returned to the practice field the last two days in a limited fashion, did not practice Friday and will miss a fifth straight game since undergoing a sports hernia procedure on Oct. 3.

Fleming will miss a second straight game since suffering the hamstring injury in Week 8, while Franklin was injured in Week 9.

The Chiefs list cornerbacks Chris Owens (knee) and Phillip Gaines (groin), and linebacker Josh Martin (hamstring) as questionable.

Gaines put in a full practice all week, so he should be fine for Sunday barring a setback.

Owens looks to make a return to the lineup after missing three straight games.

Strong safety Eric Berry (ankle), linebacker Tamba Hali (knee), running back Cyrus Gray (hand), wide receiver Junior Hemingway (hamstring), tight end Travis Kelce (ribs) and cornerback Sean Smith are probable.

Meanwhile, the Bills list two important pieces on offense as questionable.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (groin) did not practice for a second straight day, but running back Fred Jackson (groin) put in a limited practice for a third straight day.
