A high ankle sprain caused Dexter McCluster to miss five games in the middle of the season, and clearly he didn’t have the same quickness and speed after returning for the final five games plus the playoff loss to Baltimore.
“The injury really brought me down,” he said. “But I kept working at it. I’ve been injured before, so I went back out there and I wasn’t timid. I was running and cutting and doing it the same way I’d been doing it. I won’t say I was actually back to what I was but I wasn’t scared to try to play.
