Moore (illness) is out for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. Moore has played less than half of the defensive snaps for Houston this year, so his absence shouldn't change much for the defense.
Former Broncos safety Rahim Moore has agreed to terms with the Texans, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter. Moore was a second-round selection out of UCLA by the Broncos in the 2011 NFL draft. In his four seasons with Denver, Moore totaled 196 tackles and eight interceptions. Four of those interceptions came this past season. However, Moore will long be linked with allowing Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco pass to go over his head and into the arms of receiver Jacoby Jones for a late 70-yard touchdown in a divisional round playoff game following the 2012 regular season. The Ravens won that game in double overtime as a result.
The Texans are closing in on a deal with free agent free safety Rahim Moore, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports on Thursday. Moore visited Houston on Wednesday. The 25-year-old spent his first four seasons with the Broncos registering 196 tackles and eight interceptions. Last season, he posted 43 tackles and a career-high four interceptions.

The revamped Broncos DST pressured Colts quarterback Andrew Luck into some mistakes Week 1. The unit hit Luck six times, getting 1.5 sacks from defensive end DeMarcus Ware and another sack from linebacker Nate Irving. Safety Rahim Moore intercepted a pair of deflected passes. Linebacker Brandon Marshall, replacing the injured Danny Trevathan, made a game-high 10 tackles, two for loss, and broke up a pass. Denver stuffed Luck on a 4th-and-goal sneak attempt from the 1. The rejuvenated Broncos DST gets a juicy matchup Week 2 when the Chiefs visit Denver.
