Moore was the odd man out in the Texans' loaded group of safeties, but he should be welcomed on a Colts team that is still looking for answers in the secondary. Moore appeared in 30 games for Houston over the last two seasons, recording 59 tackles and four pass breakups along the way.
Moore was released by the Texans on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Moore had previously been a starter for the Texans, but he lost ground on the depth chart and got squeezed out of a roster spot. The Texans signed free agent Tyrann Mathieu and drafted Justin Reid before also moving Kareem Jackson from cornerback to safety, with the flurry of moves making Moore superfluous.
Moore landed on injured reserve in December with a Grade 2 MCL sprain and had yet to recover from the injury in late June. However, he appears fully healthy with training camp now underway. The 25-year-old should be competing for a role as a depth safety and special teams contributor, given the Texans' addition of Tyrann Mathieu in the offseason.
Moore (knee) remains in recovery from a Grade 2 MCL sprain, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Moore injured his knee last December, but the team has yet to state a timeline for his return to the field. There's a strong possibility he won't be a full-go for training camp in late July.
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.
