"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.
Moore sustained a shoulder injury Sunday to the same shoulder he injured in Week 4. He did not return to action. Jackson suffered a quad injury in the second quarter and was also unable to return to the game.
The Falcons are hoping to have both ready for Week 17 with the division on the line against the Panthers. Atlanta is a 3 1/2 point favorite, according to Vegas Insider.
At this point his status remains uncertain for the regular-season finale against Carolina. Atlanta is currently a 3 1/2-point home favorite against Carolina, according to Vegas Insider. The winner will advance to the postseason.
