Donnie Avery back at practice Tuesday

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 he 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.

Avery became the Rams' No. 1 receiver after Torry Holt left for the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency.
