If I recall, Friday's practice was the first Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster has missed since becoming a member of the Chiefs.

And now he's doubtful for game one.

Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com has the official listings for the Chiefs injury report:

  • LB Cameron Sheffield: Out
  • WR Dexter McCluster: Doubtful
  • LB Tamba Hali: Questionable
  • RT Ryan O'Callaghan: Questionable

Doubtful means there's about a 75% chance the player won't play. McCluster has missed practice with an illness. This is concerning because McCluster was expected to fulfill a few roles for the Chiefs. With Jerheme Urban also out for the season, the Chiefs are reaching far into their pool of receivers.

For the Chargers, LB Shawne Merriman is listed as doubtful.
