Kansas City, MO (SportsNetwork.com) – Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Donnie
Avery will not play this weekend following sports hernia surgery, the team

Patriots. He is set to undergo surgery in Philadelphia on Friday and will not
be with the Chiefs as they take on San Francisco in Week 5.

to miss at least four weeks.

Former 49er A.J. Jenkins is expected to start in his place on Sunday.
