Titans RB Dexter McCluster declared himself 100 percent recovered from his late-season knee injury.
McCluster fractured his kneecap last December. An ineffective gadget player throughout his career, McCluster is entering his age-27 season. The Titans have spoken openly of increasing McCluster's role, indicative of a special kind of delusion that makes the Titans the Titans. McCluster has averaged 2.83 yards per carry the past two years and struggles in pass protection. Apr 17 - 3:42 PM

Speaking Monday, coach Ken Whisenhunt said the Titans need to get Dexter McCluster more involved next season.

To put it bluntly, this would not be one of our takeaways from the Titans' season. McCluster is a mediocre role player, one who averaged 3.27 yards per carry and 7.6 yards per catch in 2014. The fact that he was one of the jewels of the Titans' free agent class is emblematic of everything that's been wrong with the team during the Ruston Webster era at general manager. Webster has been a disaster in free agency, and scarcely better in the draft.

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

WR Rico Richardson was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. One of the crown jewels of the Titans' free-agent class, McCluster closes the book on 2014 having turned 66 touches into just 328 yards. He averaged an anemic 3.3 yards on his 40 carries. Signed through 2016, McCluster will be back to attempt to change the pace next season.

Dexter McCluster (knee) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Jaguars and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Predictably, McCluster proved to be yet another terrible free-agent signing by GM Ruston Webster. Yet, the Titans remain committed to Webster running the organization. They'll continue to toil in mediocrity. McCluster inked a three-year, $9 million deal that included $4.5 million guaranteed. He went on to rush 40 times for a measly 131 yards (3.1 YPC) and catch 26 passes for 197 yards (7.6 YPR) and one touchdown. He's set to count $3.35 million against the cap in 2015.

Dexter McCluster (knee) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

The Titans' supposed change-of-pace back is looking doubtful for Thursday's game against the Jaguars. A McCluster absence would mean more run for Leon Washington.

Dexter McCluster (knee) did not participate in Titans practice Monday.

McCluster's chances of playing Thursday night against Jacksonville are uncertain on a short week. Leon Washington is the Titans' reserve passing-down back.

Dexter McCluster rushed five times for 15 yards and caught two passes for eight yards Week 15 against the Jets.

McCluster appeared to be ahead of Bishop Sankey on the depth chart, out touching the rookie 7-to-4 and playing significantly more snaps. Despite the touches, McCluster is not worth owning in any leagues.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 08:04:00 PM

Dexter McCluster rushed nine times for 33 yards and caught two balls for 11 yards in the Titans' Week 13 loss to the Texans.

Because the Titans fell behind big early, McCluster saw more duty in place of early-down back Bishop Sankey. The 11 touches likely aren't a sign of things to come. Passing-down back McCluster has little to no fantasy value.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 04:17:00 PM

Dexter McCluster (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 13.

McCluster has been cleared to return from his Week 12 concussion. He's averaging just four touches per game behind Bishop Sankey and remains a fantasy non-factor.

Dexter McCluster (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It puts him on track to play in Week 13. McCluster still hasn't been fully cleared, but has a chance to return without missing time.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 07:34:00 PM

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.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 04:33:00 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.

McCluster's touchdown came with five minutes left in the game and the Titans down 40-17. The Titans' passing back is now averaging 4.1 touches per game on the year.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 05:28:00 PM

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

McCluster also dropped a would-be seven-yard touchdown on his other target. Entering the game questionable with a knee injury, McCluster looked no worse for the wear. He remains a fantasy non-factor.
Tue, Nov 18, 2014 12:02:00 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.
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 02:23:00 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.
