Dexter McCluster is currently in the NFL's concussion protocol.

If McCluster can't play Sunday against the Texans, the Titans might be forced to put more on Bishop Sankey's plate in obvious passing situations.
Nov 24 - 4:33 PM

Dexter McCluster rushed one time for two yards and caught three passes for 15 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 loss at Philadelphia.

Dexter McCluster rushed one time for five yards and caught a 17-yard pass in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

Nov 18 - 12:02 AM

Dexter McCluster (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night against the Steelers.

McCluster was only able to practice on a limited basis this week, leaving his status up in the air. Leon Washington (hamstring) is also listed as questionable. McCluster has just eight touches over the last three games and shouldn't be on PPR radars. Bishop Sankey will have an every-down role if McCluster and Washington are held out.
Nov 15 - 2:23 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) was limited in Friday's practice.

McCluster remains day to day with a knee bruise. He isn't a lock to play in Week 11. With McCluster and Leon Washington (hamstring) dealing with injuries, Bishop Sankey should take on an expanded role in the pass game.
Nov 14 - 8:11 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) was officially limited in Thursday's practice.

The Nashville Tennessean erroneously reported that McCluster was DNP. Either way, he's day to day, and not a guarantee to suit up for Monday's game against the Steelers. McCluster shouldn't be on PPR radars.
Nov 13 - 4:05 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) remained sidelined Thursday.

Dealing with a bruise, McCluster is trending in the wrong direction for Monday's game against the Steelers. He shouldn't be on Week 11 fantasy radars.
Nov 13 - 2:52 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

McCluster is day to day with a knee bruise. He should be considered questionable for Monday night's game with the Steelers. Bishop Sankey would see more passing-down work if McCluster is held out.
Nov 12 - 2:42 PM

The Titans are calling Dexter McCluster "day to day" with a knee bruise.

McCluster "bruised" the knee in Sunday's loss to Baltimore and didn't return. As Shonn Greene's snaps were limited following a first-drive lost fumble, Bishop Sankey operated as a clear feature back against the Ravens, finishing with 20 touches. Sankey could be in for a similar workload this week against Pittsburgh if McCluster does not play. McCluster is the team's passing-down back.
Nov 10 - 4:33 PM

Dexter McCluster will undergo further testing on his knee Monday.

McCluster was injured in the first half, briefly returned and then went to the sideline again. The Titans' No. 3 RB has swelling.

Nov 9 - 2:14 PM

Dexter McCluster caught four passes for 39 yards in the Titans' Week 8 loss to the Texans.

He added one yard on two carries. The six touches are about McCluster's weekly ceiling as the No. 3 back in the Tennessee backfield. He's lightyears away from fantasy relevance.
Oct 26 - 5:46 PM

Dexter McCluster managed five yards on two touches in Tennessee's Week 7 loss to the Redskins.

McCluster caught a six-yard pass and lost a yard on his lone carry. He fumbled away a punt return for a turnover. McCluster is a hail mary RB5.
Oct 19 - 6:59 PM

Dexter McCluster rushed twice for six yards and caught six balls for 52 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

As the Titans don't trust Bishop Sankey to be their passing-down back, McCluster filled that role admirably against Jacksonville, leading the team in receptions and securing all six of his passing-game targets. McCluster remains no better than a low-ceiling RB4 in PPR leagues entering a Week 7 date with Washington.
