Chargers placed RB Dexter McCluster (forearm) on the reserve/NFI list.
With only eight games remaining, he's done for the year. McCluster reportedly suffered the injury in a "household accident." It's an unexpected loss, but McCluster had been limited to punt returns since his Week 3 signing. The Chargers promoted WR Isaiah Burse from the practice squad. Sat, Nov 5, 2016 03:21:00 PM

Chargers RB Dexter McCluster (hamstring) is active for Week 6 against the Broncos.

McCluster was questionable after tweaking his hamstring in Tuesday's practice. McCluster has received vanishingly-few touches since arriving in San Diego, but that could change if Melvin Gordon continues to struggle. Inactive for the Chargers are CB Brandon Flowers, DE Darius Philon, SS Jahleel Addae, CB Pierre Desir, OT Tyreek Burwell, OG Max Tuerk and TE Asante Cleveland.

Dexter McCluster rushed once for two yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards Week 4 against the Saints.

McCluster did see a worrying number of snaps in the red zone including two screen attempts, but he predictably did little. This is Melvin Gordon's backfield.

Dexter McCluster caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards in the Chargers' Week 3 loss to the Colts.

McCluster also handled kickoff returns in his Bolts debut. He said he pretty much has the playbook down after playing for OC Ken Whisenhunt in Tennessee, but Melvin Gordon was still the preferred back on most passing downs. McCluster played in spots, but if Sunday is any indication, Gordon is going to play heavy snaps sans Danny Woodhead (torn ACL). McCluster is worth monitoring in PPR leagues, but he's not a must-add at this point.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams doesn’t expect Dexter McCluster to pick up Danny Woodhead’s snaps.

McCluster will get work in pass situations, but isn’t going to come close to Woodhead’s role. Melvin Gordon should be a near every-down back against the Colts.

Newly-signed Chargers RB Dexter McCluster is expected to be active for Week 3 against the Colts.

McCluster only signed two days ago, but he has long been well versed in OC Ken Whisenhunt's system after spending the last two years under Whisenhunt in Tennessee. "For the most part, I pretty much got it down already," McCluster said. Per the San Diego Union-Tribune, "there is faith at Chargers Park" that McCluster can "soften the blow" following Danny Woodhead's ACL tear. McCluster has a chance to become a PPR factor within a few weeks.

Chargers signed RB Dexter McCluster.

McCluster was released by the Titans at final cuts. McCluster has become something of a meme, but should actually slide in to Danny Woodhead's role fairly seamlessly. Woodhead is both a better runner and pass catcher, but McCluster does a decent imitation. He played for OC Ken Whisenhunt in Tennessee. Playing with better teammates for a better coaching staff than he did with the Titans, Dex could come into immediate PPR value. The Chargers want to be a two-back offense.

Jets worked out free agent Dexter McCluster.

It's his first known visit since his Titans release. McCluster isn't going to get a guaranteed deal, but should sign with a team after Week 1.

Titans released RB/KR Dexter McCluster.

This is a surprising move after coach Mike Mularkey talked all preseason about McCluster having a role in the offense, but it is the correct decision from a talent standpoint. A gadget and special-teams player who has never proven to be explosive, giving touches to McCluster with DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry in the backfield would have almost been malpractice. McCluster will likely latch on somewhere else as an option on special teams, but he remains well off the fantasy radar.
Fri, Sep 2, 2016 02:39:00 PM

Coach Mike Mularkey reiterated that Dexter McCluster is assured of a role in the Titans' backfield.

The Titans' website is pushing it as McCluster being the "lightning" portion of Tennessee's "thunder and thunder" backfield, which will be led by DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry. "I think I’ve said it before: He clearly has a role here," Mularkey said of McCluster. "The offense is multi-faceted, and he will be parts of many different packages to try and attack defenses." McCluster's presence will likely limit the receiving usage of both Murray and Henry.
Mon, Jun 13, 2016 04:23:00 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey suggested RB Dexter McCluster's roster spot is safe.

The additions of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry mean the Titans will have to make some tough decisions at running back, but Mularkey made it sound as if McCluster is safe. "We’re going to find as much balance as we can, and we’re going to try to keep people off-balance with personnel groupings," Mularkey said. "Dexter will have a role." With McCluster likely to make the team, David Cobb, Antonio Andrews, and Bishop Sankey are likely competing for one roster spot. Cobb is the early favorite to win that battle.

Titans placed RB Dexter McCluster on injured reserve with a fractured wrist, ending his season.

Coach Mike Mularkey said Bishop Sankey will replace McCluster as the Titans' passing-game specialist. McCluster flirted with PPR value behind Antonio Andrews this season, catching 31 passes in 11 games. McCluster still has more career fumbles (13) than touchdowns (9). The Titans have 27-year-old McCluster under contract for one more season at just below $3 million.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 04:47:00 PM

Dexter McCluster rushed four times for 12 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 38 yards Week 14 against the Jets.

McCluster actually led the Titans in rushing on a day the offense could barely stay on the field. McCluster has been an important factor in the passing game all season, but he is not a fantasy option even when healthy.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:00:00 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) is probable for Week 14 against the Jets.

McCluster is back after sitting out the last two weeks with a sprained MCL. He's played an important role in the passing game this year with 27 catches for 222 yards. McCluster's return will mean fewer snaps for Antonio Andrews and David Cobb.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 01:56:00 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) is expected back for Week 14.

He's practicing in full. With Kendall Wright (ribs) ailing, interim coach Mike Mularkey said McCluster may have to take on a bigger role in the passing game. With David Cobb now playing snaps behind Antonio Andrews, McCluster is an RB4, at best.
