Moore has been a revelation since taking over for Deone Bucannon at dollar linebacker in Week 15, racking up 25 tackles (16 solo) and a pass defended over the past two games. If his ankle injury afflicts Moore at all, though, he may yield snaps to Zaviar Gooden at ILB.
Moore (ankle) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Rams.
Moore injured his ankle during Friday's practice. If he's ultimately ruled out, Zaviar Gooden projects to slide into the starting lineup.
Moore was released alongside fellow linebacker Sam Barrington as the Chiefs made a series of moves Tuesday. Moore has now been cut by two separate teams so far this season and failed to record a single stat during his stint with the Chiefs. He'll now look to find his way onto yet another roster looking to bolster their linebacker corps.
Moore's signing comes as Kansas City has decided to release fellow linebacker Dezman Moses. After spending his first two seasons with the Raiders, Moore is familiar with the AFC West, but was jettisoned by the Colts earlier this week after recording 25 tackles through their first four games. That release followed a trade of the former third-round pick after his first two seasons in Oakland, so he'll hope for a more prolonged stay with the Chiefs, even though their outside linebacker depth doesn't make that seem very likely.
Moore was released by the Colts on Tuesday, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Moore started each of the first four games, recording 25 tackles (20) without any sacks or takeaways. His snap count dropped to a season-low 27 in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville, suggesting the Colts were displeased with his work long before he was released. Selected in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft by Oakland, the 26-year-old Moore will now search for a third NFL team. He hasn't lived up to the promise he showed in 2013 and 2014 with the Raiders.
