McCluster Expected to Miss 2-3 Weeks with Knee Injury


NASHVILLE, Tenn. —The Titans get additional time to recover following Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars – mentally and physically.

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said the team needs it.

Running back Dexter McCluster is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a knee injury he suffered in the third quarter of the 19-13 loss, Mularkey said.

Other injuries from Thursday's game:

Tight end Anthony Fasano suffered a bone bruise, but it doesn't look too serious, Mularkey said.

Safety Da'Norris Searcy suffered a hyperextended knee, but it also doesn't look serious, per Mularkey.

There's a good chance receiver Kendall Wright could return for the team's November 29 game against the Raiders, however, after missing the previous three games with a knee injury.

"We're hoping. We should have him back,'' Mularkey said of Wright. "We've got a light practice Monday, and (we'll) just run him good Monday and see how he is Monday and come back Wednesday and put him in there."

Mularkey said cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson should also be back for Oakland after missing time with a hamstring.

After defensive lineman Al Woods suffered a high ankle sprain against the Panthers, Mularkey said he'd miss several weeks.

Mularkey said the Titans need the extra time after a short week leading up to Thursday's contest, and after playing two games in five days. The Titans had a bye early in the season, on October 4.

"I think this time will be good for everybody, especially with the bye being where the bye was,'' Mularkey said. "Obviously a short week is very demanding physically and mentally on the players, and it's difficult on the coaches because of the work that they put in even from the week prior.

"I think everybody needs a little rest to get away and to regroup.''
