"We had to list somebody at one," Whisenhunt told The Tennessean. "We're rotating those guys, and he was the senior member. He came back and has worked hard. That's where we are right now."
The depth chart contradicts the conventional wisdom that Sankey, the first back drafted, will end up leading Tennessee in carries.
"I see myself running a lot, and that's what has me most excited right now," McCluster said. "I'm ready to get back out there and see how things unfold."
McCluster is expected to work in committee with Bishop Sankey and Shonn Greene, but he could be the change-of-pace rusher and catch passes out of the backfield.
"I guess it was based on everything I did in OTAs," McCluster said. "I did pretty much everything, but I was more excited about how much I've been running the ball."
How many times per game does McCluster expect to carry the ball this season?
"I don't know. I joked around all last year (with the Chiefs), saying, 'Hey, coach, just give me my 10 (carries) and I can make something happen,'" McCluster said. "But really, I'll take as many as I can."
Even though rookie running back

The Tennessean recently projected Sankey for more than 1,200 total yards and seven touchdowns. Based on those projections, Sankey would have finished as a Top 20 Fantasy running back in 2013.
