News: Avant (thigh), who was listed as questionable, had two receptions for 12 yards on six targets in Sunday's 37-19 loss to the Steelers. Impact: With Jerrico Cotchery (hamstring) inactive, the Steelers opted to use Philly Brown as the starter across from Kelvin Benjamin, leaving Avant in his usual No. 3 wide receiver role. Through three games, Avant has eight receptions for 60 yards on 14 targets.(RotoWire, )

News: Avant (thigh) is active for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: Avant is available if you need him Sunday. He could see added looks with Jerricho Cotchery out, but Kelvin Benjamin and TE Greg Olsen are the upside plays among Carolina's pass-catchers in Week 3.(RotoWire, )

News: Avant (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. Impact: Avant was able to log limited practices Wednesday and Friday, but the injury was significant enough to keep him shelved Thursday. It looks like Avant is a legitimate game-time decision for Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Ron Rivera expressed concern about Avant's (thigh) ability to take the field Sunday against the Steelers, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. Impact: Avant missed practice for a second consecutive day, and reportedly, his leg tightened up when he attempted to perform work on the side. As such, he's a question mark heading into the weekend, with Friday's injury report possibly clearing up his availability, one way or the other.(RotoWire, )

News: Avant (thigh) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, the Panthers' official site reports. Impact: With Cam Newton back under center in Week 2, Avant ranked third on the team with seven targets, after garnering just one look from Derek Anderson in the opener. Perhaps the veteran wideout provides Newton with a level of trust, but Avant appears poised for a decent first campaign in Carolina. Nonetheless, potential owners should monitor Avant's status as the week unfolds in order to understand his availability Sunday against the Steelers.(RotoWire, )

News: Avant caught 5-of-7 targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 victory over the Lions. Impact: Avant rebounded well from last week's one-catch debut for the Panthers by scoring the go-ahead touchdown in Carolina's home opener this Sunday. In doing so, the veteran wideout secured a 14-yard bullet pass from quarterback Cam Newton. Furthermore, Avant's seven targets were more than expected Sunday, but his pegging as Carolina's No. 3 wideout offers restricted fantasy value moving forward.(RotoWire, )
