Report: Titans' Dexter McCluster heading for MRI on knee


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Titans RB/WR Dexter McCluster is scheduled to have an MRI on his injured knee Monday, NFL.com reports.

Despite the test, McCluster's injury is not expected to be serious. He didn't record a touch in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.


Titans RB Shonn Greene deemed doubtful for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Titans running back Shonn Greene was unable to practice Friday and was officially deemed doubtful for Sunday's clash against the Jaguars, the Tennessean reports.

Green has not been able to get back on the practice field since he was a limited participant Wednesday. It doesn't appear his hamstring injury will heal fast enough for Week 6, so the Titans will likely turn to rookie Bishop Sankey for the start. Dexter McCluster could also see a healthy dose of work in Greene's absence. 


Several Titans make small contributions in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Also pitching in were tight end Chase Coffman with two receptions for 18 yards and running back Leon Washington with a snag for seven yards. Running back Bishop Sankey added 27 yards on eight carries while wideout Dexter McCluster had 10 yards on three carries and caught a pass.


If you need a last-minute Brandon Marshall replacement...


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) What is a Fantasy owner to do if Brandon Marshall's lingering ankle injury forces the Bears to sit him down in Week 4?

Luckily, the Bears play at 1:00 pm EST, so we will know if Marshall is inactive by 11:30 am, giving you plenty of time to shuffle your roster.However, if you don't have any capable replacements available on your bench -- remember, six teams are on bye this week -- here are some guys you may be able to snag in free agency at the last minute to fill in for Marshall, all of whom are listed among the top-50 at their positions by Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg:

Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson (42 percent owned), Raiders wide receiver James Jones (68 percent), Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (29 percent), Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (66 percent), or Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings (53 percent).

If you have Marshall slotted into the flex spot, consider running backs Jerick McKinnon (19 percent) of the Vikings, Justin Forsett (63 percent) of the Ravens, Jacquizz Rodgers (19 percent) of the Falcons, Jonathan Grimes (13 percent) of the Texans, or Dexter McCluster (19 percent) of the Titans. 


Bishop Sankey takes a step forward, at Shonn Greene's expense


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Titans running back Shonn Greene might have found the end zone in Week 3 against the Bengals, but he saw less of the field than any of his backfield mates in the 33-7 loss.

Maybe it was just the flow of the game, but Greene's role was much-diminished Sunday. Greene saw sporadic playing time, including deep into the fourth quarter, but took a big backseat to both Dexter McCluster and Bishop Sankey. Greene played 46 percent of the team's snaps in Week 1, but has seen that number fall to 16 and 20 percent over the last two weeks.

And while McCluster was the big winner in Week 2, his role fell to 26 percent of the snaps in Week 3. This time around, it was Bishop Sankey's turn to shoulder the load, as he jumped up from 10.9 percent of the snaps through two games to 42 percent Sunday. He responded to the increased role well, with 61 yards on 10 carries, as well as one catch for 9 yards on his lone target.

Sankey was considered a big-time sleeper heading into the season, but we knew he would have to fight for time in a crowded backfield. Based on Week 3, he just might have earned it. Now is the time to snatch him up in the 34 percent of CBSSports.com leagues he is still available in.  


Jason McCourty active for Week 3 vs. Bengals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Titans cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Bengals.

McCourty was listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, but he'll suit up. Running back Dexter McCluster (foot), quarterback Charlie Whitehurst (finger) and linebacker Wesley Woodyard (ankle) are also active after being listed as probable.


Titans fairly healthy heading into Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Titans are quite healthy heading into their Week 3 game Sunday in Cincinnati. They have four players on their Friday injury report - and three are probable. The lone exception is cornerback Jason McCourty (groin), who is questionable.

The probables are running back Dexter McCluster (foot), quarterback Charlie Whitehurst (finger) and linebacker Wesley Woodyard (ankle).


Dexter McCluster, Shonn Greene splitting bulk of snaps through two weeks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) The running back situation for the Titans remains a guessing game, as head coach Ken Whisenhunt continues to split the workload among four running backs.

Dexter McCluster dominated the backfield timeshare through two weeks, playing 52 offensive snaps to Shonn Greene's 40. However, Greene currently leads the team in rushing with 111 yards on 20 carries. McCluster has 59 yards through the ground on 13 carries, with two catches on three targets. 

Bishop Sankey has only played 14 snaps this season, 10 of which came in Week 1. He has eight carries for 28 yards, which ranks third among his running mates. Although Leon Washington has played 22 snaps, he's gotten only four touches. Washington has two carries for 23 yards through two weeks.


Dexter McCluster able to practice in full


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Titans running back Dexter McCluster was able to practice in full Thursday.

McCluster popped up on the injury report Wednesday with a foot injury. The fact that he was upgraded to full practice bodes well for his status Week 3.

Dexter McCluster dealing with sore foot; more info Wednesday

(9/15/2014) Titans coach Ken Whizenhunt would only tell reporters that running back Dexter McCluster has a sore foot Monday, and that additional details will be known Wednesday. McCluster was spotted leaving the locker room with a walking boot on his foot after Sunday's game.

(9/14/2014) Titans running back Dexter McCluster left the locker room after Sunday's loss vs. Dallas with his right foot in a walking boot, according to The Tennessean. McCluster had four carries for 30 yards and one catch for 9 yards in the 26-10 loss.

The Titans are back in action Week 3 against the Bengals.


Titans' RB situation remains a guessing game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) The Titans used four different running backs -- Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster, Bishop Sankey and Leon Washington -- during a Week 1 win at Kansas City, with Greene leading the way with 71 rushing yards on 15 carries.

Though, the pecking order at running back appears to be a flexible situation heading into Week 2 against the Cowboys.

"We're going to have different personnel in and out and I think that's what's going to make this group special," McCluster said, per ESPN. "As far as me, we really don't have a set amount of carries, plays or touches. It's just kind of all how the game unfolds. It's how the game comes. With us really not knowing who's going to get in next, it keeps the defense in a frenzy, too."

Sankey didn't get his first carry until the third quarter Sunday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said that wasn't the plan regarding the rookie running back.

"It just evolves," Whisenhunt said. "He could be in the first snap this week. It really depends on the plan and what we are doing. The thing that is important to me, it’s what he did when he went in it was how he played. I thought he did a nice job."


Titans to use four backs every week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Titans' official website expects coach Ken Whisenhunt to continue splitting the workload among four running backs. In the Week 1 win at Kansas City, Shonn Greene got 15 carries, Dexter McCluster nine, Bishop Sankey six and Leon Washington two.

"The number of carries will vary per week depending on the situation of the game, but it is clear that all four guys will be a part of the Titans' game plan on a weekly basis," the website said.


Dexter McCluster nets 10 touches in Week 1 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Titans running back Dexter McCluster was more of a factor in the running game than passing game during a 26-10 win Week 1 at Kansas City.

McCluster finished second on the team with nine carries for 29 yards, which trailed Shonn Greene's team-high 71 rushing yards on 15 carries. McCluster did factor into the passing game, but he had just one catch for 17 yards. He was targeted twice.

The Titans are back in action Week 2 against Dallas.


Dexter McCluster more of a PPR option Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Dexter McCluster will open his fifth NFL season in a game where the Chiefs are on the field. Only this time he will be on the opposite sideline, making his regular season debut for the Titans after spending his first four seasons in the NFL with Kansas City.

McCluster did have a career-high 511 receiving yards, 53 catches and two touchdowns in 2013 for Kansas City. Though, he had just a career-low eight carries for 5 yards. 

Running backs did all right against the Chiefs in 2013. They averaged 18.1 Fantasy points per week, which included a playoff game against the Colts. For the season, running backs averaged 95.2 rushing yards and 42.4 receiving yards against Kansas City, but had much better success against them down the stretch. Over the final nine games, including the playoffs, running backs averaged 117 rushing yards and totaled eight eight rushing touchdowns.

The Titans will probably use McCluster in a similar way to how the Chiefs used him as a pass-catching option. Though, much like Kansas City as well, the running back depth chart is stacked in Tennessee, with Shonn Greene and Bishop Sankey ahead of McCluster on the unofficial depth chart heading into Week 1. 

McCluster is probably a better option in PPR formats heading into Week 1 than standard leagues. But he still remains a low-end start in PPR formats.


Coach on Shonn Greene as starter: 'We had to list somebody'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated that his initial depth chart at running back -- Shonn Greene as starter, followed by Dexter McCluster and rookie Bishop Sankey -- isn't exactly written in stone.

"We had to list somebody at one," Whisenhunt told The Tennessean. "We're rotating those guys, and he was the senior member. He came back and has worked hard. That's where we are right now."


Shonn Greene got the nod because of experience


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Shonn Greene is the No. 1 running back because he's the most experienced, reports TitanInsider.com. On the team's initial depth chart, Greene was listed ahead of Dexter McCluster and rookie Bishop Sankey.
