Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster Not A Likely Option

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster was riding the stationary bike at practice on Friday, according to Josh Looney of That would suggest his ankle injury isn't much better and his status for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills is most definitely in jeopardy.

McCluster left last week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with some sort of ankle injury and hasn't practice all week. Nick Wright of 610 Sports has reported that it's a high ankle sprain for McCluster. That would mean he's likely out multiple weeks. Those can take up to a month to heal.

McCluster was expected to be worked into the offense more often as the Chiefs did with him against the Jaguars last week. This will likely put a hold on that which is disappointing. He has the potential to be a great fantasy football player because he's targeted in the passing game and takes handoffs.

McCluster hasn't been a big fantasy football option all year but we thought that was changing in the weeks ahead. The Chiefs will place him on the injury report Friday afternoon and we'll guess the best listing he'll get is questionable. With no practice all week it's hard to envision a scenario with McCluster playing.
