After going through Saturday night’s practice inside Arrowhead Stadium and coming back Sunday morning with no further problems, rookie WR/RB Dexter McCluster was upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Monday night’s season opener.
McCluster missed Friday night’s practice because of illness and when the Chiefs released their version of the NFL’s official injury report for the game, he went down as doubtful. That means there was a 75 percent chance he would not play.
Questionable generally means a 50-50 chance of participation. If he has no further setbacks Sunday night or Monday, then McCluster should be on the field to play the Chargers.
There were no other changes in the Chiefs injury report on Sunday. OLB Tamba Hali and RT Ryan O’Callaghan were both listed as questionable and OLB Cameron Sheffield was ruled out of the game.
If there are no setbacks for Hali, expect him to start against San Diego. O’Callaghan will not play, with Barry Richardson taking his spot in the starting lineup.
