As the Kansas City Chiefs look to once again draw even with the Denver Broncos atop the AFC West on Sunday, they will need to do so without one of their most dynamic and versatile weapons on the field.
McCluster was ruled out on Saturday afternoon and did not make the trip with the team, as he deals with an infected cut on his ankle.
The good news for McCluster, however, is that he is not infected with MRSA.
Pro Football Talk passed along the news:
Per Chiefs, WR Dexter McCluster does not have MRSA, but he won’t make the trip to Oakland.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought MRSA to the forefront of the NFL discussion earlier in the year with the outbreak in their team facilities, so it is good to learn that McCluster has not suffered from the very dangerous infection.
With McCluster out of action, the Chiefs will be looking to wide receiver Junior Hemmingway to step up with an increase in snaps.
