Dexter McCluster injury update could be coming on Wednesday (or not)

One of the big story lines this week will be the health of Kansas City Chiefs receiver Dexter McCluster, who hurt his elbow last weekend against the New Orleans Saints.

Unfortunately, we're probably going to have to wait another day to find out more about his status.

Tuesday is the player's off day so head coach Romeo Crennel will not be talking to the media. Crennel's media session won't come until Wednesday around 10:45 a.m.

Romeo said on Monday that he didn't know yet what McCluster's status was, but hoped to learn more by Tuesday or Wednesday. If it's not a serious injury -- like season-ending -- then Crennel could keep us in the dark for a few more days. There's no reason for him to say publicly what McCluster's status is -- outside of what the league requires him to do with the Wednesday through Friday practice reports -- so he might as well keep the San Diego Chargers guessing.

We'll keep an eye out but I'm predicting Wednesday is the earliest we'll hear of anything.
