Moeaki (hamstring) caught his only pass target for six yards Saturday against the Chiefs.
Moeaki caught his pass with the first-team offense on the first drive of the third quarter. Based on his usage over the last two weeks, he appears on track to be Zach Miller's backup as the team's primary receiving option at tight end.
Moeaki suffered a left hamstring injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots, WGN Radio's Adam Hoge reports.
The hamstring issue marred an otherwise solid night for the oft-injured Moeaki, who caught four passes for 28 yards on five targets while filling in for Zach Miller (concussion). Assuming the injury isn't too serious, Moeaki seems to be ahead of Khari Lee in the battle for the No. 2 tight end job.
Moeaki spent the latter portion of the 2015 season as a member of the Falcons, but never saw much action as he recorded just three catches for 58 yards and a touchdown on five targets throughout 11 games. Moeaki doesn't present much fantasy value at this point with fellow tight ends Zach Miller, Khari Lee, and Rob Housler on the Bears' roster as well.
Heading into the game, Moeaki had only caught one ball for 11 yards in 11 games with the
Tight end Tony Moeaki was signed by the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
With Jacob Tamme (concussion) still recovering in the wake of a Week 4 absence, Moeaki could serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Levine Toilolo in Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins .
A third-round draft pick back in 2010, Moeaki has struggled with injuries throughout his career, and he no longer possesses the high-end athleticism he had upon entering the league.
