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. Dec 18 - 2:49 PM

Date:

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.
Dec 16 - 3:18 PM

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.
Dec 15 - 4:09 PM

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.
Dec 14 - 8:04 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.
Nov 30 - 4:17 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.
Nov 28 - 6:23 PM

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.
Nov 26 - 7:34 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.
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.

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.
Nov 23 - 5:28 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.
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.
