Kansas City Chiefs' Dexter McCluster Starts To Collect The Hardware

The Kansas City Chiefs 2010 draft class is getting off to a nice start. WR Dexter McCluster took a punt return back 94 yards for a score, Javier Arenas had returns of 24 and 36 yards and even Tony Moeaki scored a touchdown against the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football.

Now comes word from the NFL that McCluster has been named AFC Player of the week. He shares the honors with Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (33 carries for 231 yards and three touchdowns) and Jacksonville Jaguars LB Daryl Smith (11 tackles, one forced fumble and one interception).

McCluster's role against the Chargers was critical. The Chiefs had a heck of a time trying to move the ball offensively so they needed scores from unlikely places.

He took a punt return from his own six and with a nice juke got into the open field along the left side of the field following behind as LB Andy Studebaker took out punter Mike Scifres to clear the way for McCluster.

It was the Chiefs' longest punt return in franchise history.

McCluster is also up for rookie of the wee(k)

Kudos to Dexter McCluster for his first award (of many?) in the NFL.
