Moore (foot) sat out of practice Thursday, Stephen Holder of the IndyStar reports. After having his left foot stepped on Wednesday, Moore was sidelined again on Thursday nursing the sore foot. Despite a strong rookie campaign followed up by a stellar sophomore season that featured 90 tackles, Moore struggled in 2015 recording just 13 tackles in 12 games. Although not expected to start, Moore is currently one of Indianapolis' top defensive replacements at inside linebacker.
Moore is seeing time at first-team inside linebacker during the Colts' OTAs, the Colts' official site reports. Moore is a former third-round selection by the Raiders in 2013 that was surprisingly acquired by the Colts last September in exchange for a sixth-round pick in this year's draft. When he initially arrived in Indianapolis, both inside linebacker spots were being proficiently manned by the likes of D'Qwell Jackson and Jerrell Freeman. However, with Freeman now a member of the Bears, there is an open competition for the role next to Jackson between Moore and fellow ILB Nate Irving.
Moore had two tackles and played 18 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh. Moore got the second most snaps he's seen on defense this season with Jerrell Freeman out with a hamstring injury.
The Raiders traded linebacker Sio Moore to the Colts for a late-round draft pick in 2016, the Colts announced. Moore produced 90 tackles and three sacks in 11 games last season.
The Raiders removed linebacker Sio Moore from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Saturday, reports CSNBayArea.com. Moore began training camp on the PUP after undergoing hip surgery in the offseason. He was able to participate in Saturday's practice.
