Moore appeared in 14 games and made three starts for the Texans last season, finishing with 27 tackles and a pass breakup. The reserve safety was shut down ahead of Week 17 with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, but should be back to full strength for the Texans' offseason program.
Moore was looking at a multi-week recovery timeline after suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain in Monday's 34-6 loss to the Steelers, so the Texans decided to shut him down in order to open up a roster spot ahead of the regular-season finale against the Colts. The team signed quarterback Josh Johnson in a corresponding move to offer additional depth under center. Primarily a special-teams contributor for the Texans, Moore finishes his third NFL season with 27 tackles (20 solo) and one pass breakup across 14 games.
Moore (knee) was diagnosed with a Grade 2 MCL sprain after exiting Monday's 34-6 loss to the Steelers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
It's unlikely that Moore will recover from the injury in time to suit up for the season finale Dec. 31 against the Colts. If that proves to be the case, the third-year safety will finish the 2017 campaign with 27 tackles and one pass breakup across 14 appearances.
Moore suffered a knee injury and won't return to Monday's game versus the Steelers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
He was carted off the field, so his status for next week will be in question as well. In his absence, Kurtis Drummond will likely fill in.
Moore missed the last two games after sustaining the concussion against the Chiefs in Week 5. There hasn't been an announcement that the 24-year-old has officially cleared the league's concussion protocol at this point, but he appears to be nearing a return.
