Well it was unequivocally stated that because Worf betrayed a mission to save his wife, his career was basically dead and he wouldn't get a command.
Which was an opinion at the time. Given how much time has passed since then and how many times Worf has likely redeemed himself, it's definitely plausible that Worf is a captain by now.
Um... Worf let abandoned not only his mission during a war, but let a vital contact die. That's a pretty big screw up and one he was lucky he didn't get court martialed over.
Is it understandable? Sure... excusable? No.
