Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster Appears Ready To Return From Month-Long Absence

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster has not practiced in full since Friday, Oct. 22. McCluster suffered what's been reported as a high ankle sprain after KC's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since then, McCluster has been listed as a limited participant in practice and questionable for the last four games.

That may change this week as McCluster practiced in full on Wednesday, according to Josh Looney of If he returns to the lineup this week, he will have missed 35 days with the ankle injury.

It's too early to say one way or the other whether McCluster will play but that he's starting the week as a full participant in practice likely means we're going to be seeing him this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Chiefs offense would like to see him back as they've been steadily improving the last four weeks without scoring 13, 20, 29 and 31 points. Before his injury, we heard a couple of players say they wanted to McCluster involved as often as possible because he's a real play maker. Put in the right situation, McCluster really can make a difference.

We'll see if he's on the field this weekend to do that.

TE Tony Moeaki, G Ryan Lilja and LT Branden Albert were limited while CB Brandon Flowers and S Jon McGraw were out.
