Moore is listed as probable for Sunday against the Giants and should start. He recorded nine tackles and an interception in Week 1.
In Monday's opener against the Eagles, Moore finished second among Falcons defenders to tackle-fiend Paul Worrilow, racking up nine (seven solo) to go with one pass defended. The severity of Moore's illness is unknown, but Friday's injury report should lay out a clearer picture of his ability to suit up in Week 2 against the Giants.
Moore's nine tackles trailed only Paul Worrilow for the team lead. Moore won't always have the benefit of playing against the Eagles, but he should put up solid defensive statistics throughout the year.
"I haven't the slightest idea," Moore told ESPN when asked when he will be given clearance. "We're still rehabbing. We're sore right now from rehab, but my body feels excellent. My weight is great. I'm at 220. I was at 230, 232. With this defense, we're running and hitting. I'm still going to be down in the box. I'm excited about that."
Moore separated his shoulder in Week 4 and was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return. He then re-injured it in December, which limited his action to just seven games in 2014.
Safety Sean Baker was promoted from the practice squad to replace Moore.
Moore was only able to play seven games for Atlanta this season while dealing with multiple injuries. He totaled 25 tackles and two forced fumbles for the Falcons.
