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. Jun 13 - 4:23 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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 02:50:00 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

He's missed the past two games with a knee sprain. McCluster should be back to handle some pass-game work behind Antonio Andrews and David Cobb.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 03:31:00 PM

The Titans are hopeful that Dexter McCluster (knee) can play in Week 14 against the Jets.

McCluster was able to run on Monday and will likely jump back into practice on Wednesday. McCluster has averaged around eight touches per game when healthy this season. His return would cut into the playing time of Antonio Andrews and rookie David Cobb, particularly in passing-down situations.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 04:35:00 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Jaguars.

He suffered a sprained MCL in Week 11 and has no known timetable for return. Antonio Andrews and rookie David Cobb have been handling backfield duties.
Fri, Dec 4, 2015 12:06:00 PM

Dexter McCluster (knee) has yet to resume practicing.

McCluster is going to miss Week 13, leaving theoretical change-of-pace duties for David Cobb behind Antonio Andrews. McCluster is week to week.
Thu, Dec 3, 2015 02:29:00 PM

Titans declared RB Dexter McCluster, CB Cody Riggs, OT Jeremiah Poutasi, WR Andrew Turzilli, OLB Derrick Morgan, DT Mike Martin and DT Al Woods inactive for Week 12 against the Raiders.

McCluster is week to week. His absence leaves a change of pace role for David Cobb behind Antonio Andrews, but Cobb isn't worth rolling with in any format of fantasy.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 11:32:00 AM

Dexter McCluster will miss 2-to-3 weeks with a sprained right MCL.

It's the same injury teammate Kendall Wright suffered a few weeks ago. With McCluster facing a multi-game absence, Antonio Andrews will absorb more carries while rookie David Cobb should see a handful of touches as a change-of-pace option. Bishop Sankey, a healthy scratch the past few weeks, might also get some run.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 03:43:00 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Dexter McCluster is believed to have suffered a sprained right knee Thursday against the Jaguars.

He's headed for more tests but the injury doesn't look too serious. McCluster is second on the team with 235 rushing yards this year. Antonio Andrews and David Cobb will see more work if McCluster ends up missing time.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 11:16:00 AM

Dexter McCluster was forced from Tennessee's Week 11 game against the Jaguars with a right knee injury.

McCluster dove headfirst into three Jaguars, and took a thundering hit. He spent a good deal of time trying to get loose on the sideline before hitching a cart to the locker room. The gadget player had 18 yards on four touches before going down.
Thu, Nov 19, 2015 10:53:00 PM

Dexter McCluster rushed three times for 25 yards and a touchdown and caught 4-of-5 targets for 27 yards Week 10 against the Panthers.

McCluster scored the Titans' only touchdown of the day on a 25-yard sprint through a gaping hole on the right side in the first quarter. The run was easily the highlight of his and the offense's day, and his lost fumble in the fourth quarter officially ended the contest. No matter what happens in the early-down timeshare, McCluster projects to have a role the rest of the season. Still, he is not worth rostering in any formats.
