Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster out due to ankle infection
The Chiefs will be without wide receiver Dexter McCluster on Sunday in Oakland. McCluster hasn't practiced since Wednesday because of an infected cut on his ankle. The team says McCluster doesn't have MRSA, but he won't travel with the team to the West Coast. McCluster has caught 46 passes for 438 yards and a touchdown, but his biggest contributions have come as a punt returner. He has scored twice there, including once last week.
This is obviously a loss that hurts the Chiefs more than fantasy owners. He is a WR4 at most in PPR leagues. Jamaal Charles , Dwayne Bowe , and Alex Smith are the only Kansas City offensive players you should be considering for your lineup.
