Dexter McCluster - Kansas City Chiefs - News - NFL - Yahoo! Sports (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24011/news;_ylt=AsLlNSoQ.1ydZDF7.IgB8r3.uLYF)

Sep 11 McCluster (illness) is listed as doubtful for Monday's season opener against the Chargers, Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com reports.
Recommendation: McCluster sat out practice Friday, but we had no idea that his illness was serious enough for the Chiefs to mark him as doubtful two days before the game. He was a popular rookie sleeper, especially in PPR leagues, but it looks like we'll have to wait at least until Week 2 to see if he can begin to capitalize on that potential. Because you'll likely have to make a lineup decision on him well before Monday night's kickoff, he's simply too risky to play this week. Terrance Copper or Jeremy Horne will serve as Kansas City's No. 3 receiver.

Being his first NFL game and a Monday night game on top of that you can bet if he is held out he is very ill.

Perhaps a little gamesmanship in the works??

Man, hopefully he gets better by Monday. Really wanted to see him play.

If he does in fact sit, IMO this is devistating....

Why? I think he is and is going to be, a great player for us, but we still have other players.

Yeah, other players that aren't even close to McCluster's level. If you want some more Lance Longs then be my guess.

Word was DMC practiced Saturday night -- that's a good sign.

You are correct, we do not have anyone else like him, or at his level of play, wait, he is a rookie? So what are we to do now, the star is potentially not able to play.

Too bad; I was looking forward to seeing him play in the season opener.

Personally I think he plays a key role in our offense. Even though he is a rookie, he will help win more games than most players on the team. He just has those intangibles that teams don't see that often. I look at him like a quicker and better overall player than Sproles. His durability is still in question but as I said, he will be vital in helping this team win so if he is out, IMO it is crippling to our team.

He practiced on Saturday. He may play after all.

McCluster seems like the type of player that would want to play on a MNF. I bet you he plays.

The simple fact that he's just on the field poses a threat and gives the Chiefs more options and spreads the defense out.

Chiefs upgrade McCluster from doubtful to questionable.

If i could take good news from this it would be that maybe JC would get more touches and JC is electric.

I saw flu somewhere, but who knows.. if it was flu you think he would have been resting during Saturday's practice instead of practicing so he could play tonight.

I really hope he plays. Aside from me just wanting to see him on the field, we need him out there. We are a little banged up at WR right now and if we want to beat the Chargers, we have to be firing on all cylinders.

He's still on the pre-game jitters for a Saturday game? My guess is he'll suit up and go out for a few plays.

It's hard to imagine him not being involved to some extent. As a player, I'm sure he wants to be out there as much as possible.

I think he did enough this Pre-Season to warrant teams taking note of him when he is one the field. He is a big play waiting to happen. Even if he doesn't touch the ball, the Chiefs would do well to put him in as some sort of distraction every now and then.
