Dexter McCluster
Dec 18: The Titans have placed McCluster (knee) on IR. Meanwhile, the Titans promoted wideout Rico Richardson from their practice squad to the team's active roster in advance of Thursday's game against the Jaguars. McCluster -- who signed a three-year, $9 million deal with the Titans back in March -- thus concludes his first season with the team with 40 carries for 131 yards and 26 catches for 197 yards and a TD in 14 games.

Dec 17: McCluster (knee) won't play Thursday against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports. With the Titans down to their last two games, the report suggests that McCluster could be done for the season after suffering a knee injury this past Sunday against the Jets. If that's the case, he'd finish the season with 40 carries for 131 yards and 26 catches for 197 yards and a TD in 14 games. Bishop Sankey and Shonn Greene are in line to head the Titans' Week 16 backfield, with Leon Washington on hand in a change-of-pace role.

Dec 16: McCluster (knee) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports. McCluster has missed the first two practice sessions of the week, which does not bode well for his chances of playing in Week 16, particularly with the Titans playing Thursday.

Dec 15: McCluster has a knee injury and was listed as a non-participant on Monday's posted practice report, the Tennessean's Jim Wyatt reports. It's not clear how serious the injury is, but nobody has been effective in the Titans' backfield this season, so McCluster's value was already low. Consider his status up in the air for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

Dec 7: McCluster failed to record a carry but had two catches on four targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Giants. One week after getting nine rushing attempts, McCluster was held without a backfield touch, while fellow backup Leon Washington rushed twice for nine yards. The Titans fell behind 17-0 after 15 minutes, so there weren't many rushing opportunities anyway, and the few carries mostly went to starter Bishop Sankey. McCluster isn't likely to get a big workload in Week 15 either, as the Titans will face off against a Jets defense allowing the third-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

Nov 30: McCluster (concussion) had nine carries for 33 rushing yards and two catches on three targets for 11 receiving yards Sunday against the Texans. McCluster reportedly suffered a concussion last Sunday against the Steelers, but was able to pass through the league's concussion protocol quickly enough to play against the Texans. His nine carries were just one fewer than starter Bishop Sankey, though the Titans were dominated throughout the game and had to abandon the run fairly early, after falling behind 24-0 at the half. Despite the increased workload, McCluster remains a limited fantasy producer, even with a Week 14 matchup against a Giants defense allowing the second-most rushing yards per game this season.

Nov 30: McCluster (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Texans. McCluster is available if you need him, though with limited touches in the Titans' offense these days, his fantasy utility is limited to deeper PPR leagues.

Nov 24: McCluster is dealing with a concussion, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports. McCluster will thus need to go through the NFL's concussion protocol in order to be cleared for Sunday's game against the Texans. He carried once for two yards, caught three passes for 15 yards and, and recorded a touchdown reception in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Nov 24: McCluster had one carry for two yards and three catches (on three targets) for 15 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Despite reaching the end zone for the first time this season, McCluster's usage in the Tennessee offense is spotty at best. He can safely be avoided in a majority of fantasy leagues.

Nov 17: McCluster (knee) had one reception for 17 yards and one carry for five yards in Monday's 27-24 loss to the Steelers. McCluster didn't have to miss a game because of the knee injury, and his small role in the offense was the same as ever. He has 25 carries and 17 receptions in 10 games, but nine of the carries came in Week 1 alone.

Nov 17: McCluster (knee) is active for Monday's game against the Steelers, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports. Given that McCluster is seeing limited touches in the Titans' offense these days, he's only an option in the deepest of fantasy formats.

Nov 15: McCluster (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Steelers, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports. According to Glennon, McCluster took part in the portion of Saturday's practice that was open to the media, marking a third consecutive day of participation. If he suits up, he'll still only be an option in the deepest of leagues.

Nov 14: McCluster (knee) was limited at practice Friday, the Titans' official site reports. We'll revist McCluster's status for Monday's game against the Steelers on Saturday, though given the quantity of touches he has been seeing in the Titans' offense of late, McCluster is only an option in deeper fantasy formats.

Per John Glennon of the Tennessean, McCluster indicated Thursday that his knee issue is improving and that he's optimistic about his prospects for Monday's game against the Steelers.

Nov 10: McCluster (knee bruise) is considered day-to-day, TitanInsider.com's Terry McCormick reports. McCluster will be evaluated throughout the week, with a chance that he'll take the field Monday against Pittsburgh.

Nov 9: McCluster (knee) will have an MRI on Monday, even though his injury is not believed to be serious, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. McCluster left Sunday's game against the Ravens and wasn't able to return, finishing with no carries or receptions. He has three or fewer carries in each of the last six games, but he did catch four passes last Sunday against the Texans. In McCluster's absence, Leon Washington got added work on passing downs.

Nov 9: McCluster was forced out of Sunday's game against the Ravens with a knee injury. Heading into Sunday's contest, McCluster was averaging just three carries and two catches a game, with his fantasy utility thus limited to deeper formats.

Oct 27: McCluster had two carries for one yard and four catches (on four targets) for 39 yards in a Week 8 loss to Houston on Sunday. McCluster got more involved in the passing game against the Texans, but still wasn't able to contribute much for fantasy owners. Through eight games this season, the 26-year-old has 24 carries for 76 yards and 16 receptions for 136 yards. He has also yet to reach the end zone.

Oct 12: McCluster had two carries for six rushing yards and six catches on six target for 52 receiving yards Sunday against the Jaguars. Rookie Bishop Sankey got the start in place of the injured Shonn Greene (hamstring), and while he dominated the carries (18 for Sankey vs. two for McCluster, one for Leon Washington and one for fullback Jackie Battle), McCluster finished with twice as many receptions as the next highest Titans players. It was a bit of a surprising output, given that McCluster's previous season-high was two catches, which he set in Week 3. What should be noted is that he doesn't appear likely to get an increase in carries if Greene is unable to play in Week 7 at Washington, and it's tough to rely on so much production in the passing game given his history.

Sep 29: McCluster had two carries for one yard in Sunday's loss to the Colts. McCluster was targeted once in the passing game but didn't record a catch in the blowout defeat. Starter Shonn Greene was held to three carries for 10 yards, while rookie Bishop Sankey was more involved, running six times for 34 yards and a touchdown to go with two receptions for 23 yards. Low on the totem pole in the Tennessee backfield, McCluster can be safely be avoided in a vast majority of leagues.

Sep 21: McCluster (foot) had one carry for zero rushing yards and two catches on two targets for 15 receiving yards Sunday against the Bengals. Bishop Sankey and Shonn Greene each finished with 10 carries, as the Titans continue to say they'll give the ball to whoever has the hot hand. Unfortunately for McCluster, it looks like he's third for touches, which leaves him with a very limited fantasy upside.

Sep 21: McCluster (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. After taking part in practice in only a limited capacity Wednesday, McCluster was a full member in sessions Thursday and Friday, suggesting his foot isn't much of an issue. In addition to his punt returning duties, McCluster has seen 15 touches as a runner or receiver through the Titans' first two games. He should continue to fill a jack-of-all-trades role for the team again Sunday.

Sep 19: McCluster (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports. McCluster has been a full participant in practice to close out the week, and is therefore on track to play in Cincinnati this Sunday. McCluster has tallied 13 carries for 59 yards and two receptions for 26 yards so far this season.

Sep 18: McCluster (foot) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Limited Wednesday, McCluster appears on track for Sunday's game against the Bengals after returning to a full practice workload Thursday. However, if McCluster ultimately can't go, Bishop Sankey could see added work, particularly on passing downs.

Sep 17: McCluster (foot) was limited at practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports. More on McCluster's status for Sunday's game against the Bengals as the week continues. Through two games, McCluster has 13 carries for 59 yards, and if he is out or limited at this weekend, it's possible that Bishop Sankey (eight carries to date) could see added Week 3 touches in tandem with Shonn Greene.

Sep 15: McCluster (foot) has a sore foot, and his status for Sunday's game against the Bengals remains unclear, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.

Sep 14: McCluster had four rushes for 30 yards and caught the lone pass thrown his way for nine yards in Sunday's 26-10 loss to Dallas. Considering Tennessee had the ball for just 19 minutes, McCluster didn't perform too badly. Starter Shonn Greene had limited opportunities as well, rushing for 40 yards on just five carries. Meanwhile, rookie Bishop Sankey appears to be the third option for now, as he received just two carries for three yards.

Sep 7: McCluster had nine carries for 29 rushing yards and one catch on two targets for 17 receiving yards Sunday against the Chiefs. McCluster finished with six fewer carries than Shonn Greene but three more than rookie Bishop Sankey, and he was the only running back to have a pass thrown his way. The Titans appear to be using a running-back-by-committee approach early in the season, though McCluster isn't likely to end up with a bigger workload than Greene or Sankey.

Sep 2: McCluster is listed as the Titans' No. 3 running back on the team's latest posted depth chart, the team's official site reports. McCluster has been supplanted by rookie Bishop Sankey, who's listed as the No. 2 back behind starter Shonn Greene on the updated depth chart. McCluster will likely be involved on third downs and in the return game as well, but his overall fantasy value will remain limited so long as he's the third option in the backfield.

Aug 23: McCluster had three carries for eight yards and one reception for eight yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons. McCluster and Leon Washington both saw work with the first-team offense, while Bishop Sankey didn't play until the second half. It seems unlikely that Washington will actually have a role in the offense, but that would undoubtedly be an unwelcome development for McCluster's owners.

Aug 9: McCluster ran three times for 19 yards in Tennessee's preseason opener against Green Bay on Saturday. McCluster did most of his damage on a 10-yard burst up the middle to end the first quarter. He'll be battling Shonn Greene and rookie Bishop Sankey for backfield touches this season, but the elusive McCluster figures to be involved regularly in the passing game as well, giving him some added fantasy appeal.

Aug 6: McCluster is listed as the No. 2 running back and primary punt returner on the Titans' initial depth chart in advance of Saturday's preseason opener against Green Bay, The Tennessean reports. McCluster, who signed with Tennessee during the offseason, will be competing for snaps alongside the likes of Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey and Leon Washington. His fantasy value remains limited, however, with the 5-foot-8, 170-pound McCluster needing space in order to be most effective. Greene and Sankey are the favorites to get most of the work out of the backfield.

Aug 2: McCluster did not practice Saturday due to soreness, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports. It sounds like McCluster is simply dealing with some minor bumps and bruises, as coach Ken Whisenhunt said the 24-year-old was just a little sore after the first handful of practices of training camp. McCluster is competing for touches with the likes of Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey, Jackie Battle and Leon Washington, but Sankey seems to be the consensus favorite to emerge from the bunch.
