McCluster doesn’t have MRSA, but won’t make trip to Oakland


The bad news for Chiefs receiver Dexter McCluster is that he has been downgraded to out for Sunday at Oakland.  The good news is that he has been upgraded to not having MRSA.

According to the team, the Chiefs have determined that the infected cut in McCluster’s ankle does not include MRSA bacteria.  He nevertheless will not travel to Oakland for Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

McCluster previously had been listed as questionable.  He missed practice on Thursday and Friday after undergoing a “minor procedure” to clean out the wound.  He was hospitalized overnight Thursday.

The fourth-year wideout has been a versatile weapon for the Chiefs.  He has 46 catches for 438 yards and a touchdown, and he has accounted for all 54 punt returns this season, returning two for touchdowns.

    They don’t need McCluster to crush us. We’re not even a speed bump for them.

    denv loss will motivate kc. expect a tight, low scoring div gm, with kc winning something like 17-10.

    bottom like is kc defense, which is getting healthy, will be too much for mcgloin.

    It don’t matter. The chiefs were either gonna lose with McCluster or without him.

    Reading this Raider Defense is going to be like reading Japanese writing for Alex Smith.

    He doesn’t have ARMS, either. Which might prove fatal to his career.

    That’s nothing. Peyton has a cold for being outside a dome for so long.

    Good to be cautious with Dexter. If he didn’t have MRSA before the game, he would have it after running through the raw sewage on the field in Oakland. And that’s even mentioning the filthiness of the Raydurz themselves.

    I wish the Raiders well with their cap space next year. I am tired of spending all my hatred on the Donkeys so it will be nice to renew the KC/Oak rivalry

    Dex get well. Chad hall will average 6 yards per return. Dex can take any to the house. Go Chiefs
