Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that Moore is the 49ers' starting free safety following his strong performance Week 1 against the Buccaneers, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The topic was brought up when Shanahan was asked about Jimmie Ward's (thumb) status for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals. San Francisco's head coach had this to say regarding who is considered the starting free safety at the moment, "If Jimmie starts practicing better and shows he can play better (than Moore), you're always going to put the best players on the field, but I know it's going to be hard to do because Tarvarius is playing at a high level, and I think he's getting better." Moore wrapped up eight tackles (five solo) and a key fourth-down pass breakup in the team's victory last week. The second-year safety's performance was apparently enough to give him an edge over Ward regardless of the latter's health.
Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said Thursday that Moore still has a shot at being the starting free safety even with the return of Jimmie Ward (collarbone), Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Since moving to free safety back in May, Moore has apparently been impressing the 49ers coaching staff. Ward was thought of as a shoe-in to be the team's starting free safety despite the injury, but his time away has allowed for Moore's emergence. He'll spend the final weeks of the preseason in what appears to be a legitimate competition with Ward.
Moore saw work at free safety for the 49ers during practice Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Moore spent his entire rookie season in 2018 playing cornerback and even started the last two games of the season following Ahkello Witherspoon's knee injury. However, with San Francisco rather thin at the position after Jimmie Ward suffered a broken collarbone last week, the team has elected to move Moore back to the position in played in college.
Moore exited Sunday's loss to the Rams with a shoulder injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Moore entered the contest questionable with a should issue, and it remains unclear whether he aggravated that injury or suffered something additional. The 22-year-old will now have the offseason to recover as he finishes his rookie campaign with 23 tackles (18 solo) and two passes defensed.
Moore (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Moore will play through an undisclosed shoulder injury during the 49ers' season finale. The rookie third-round pick will draw his third straight start at right cornerback.
Moore has a shoulder injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams,Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Moore wasn't previously listed on the injury report, so this appears to be a new issue. The rookie third-round pick has been filling in at starting cornerback the last couple games with Ahkello Witherspoon (knee) on injured reserve.
Moore could see an increased role after Ahkello Witherspoon's (knee) injury, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Moore hadn't seen more than 12 snaps in a game this season before being forced into action following Witherspoon's injury Sunday. Moore responded well, tallying seven tackles (five solo) and two passes defensed. He's likely to see spot starts in the final two games of the season if Witherspoon is ruled out, as is expected.
Moore (jaw) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Moore injured his jaw during the Week 13 loss to the Seahawks, but appears to have already returned to full health. The rookie third-round pick is on track to serve his usual depth role in the secondary for Sunday's tilt with the Broncos.
Moore sustained a jaw injury late in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Moore was deemed questionable to return after suffering the injury, but it remains unclear whether he was cleared for a return. The 22-year-old's status should be cleared up once the 49ers resume practice later this week.
Moore (knee) returned to Thursday's game, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Moore exited the game after injuring his knee in the first half, but he's been cleared to return. He will continue to contribute for the 49ers on special teams while filling a depth secondary role.
Moore is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Packers with a knee injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports reports.
Moore took a hard shot while performing kickoff coverage. The rookie has played almost exclusively on special teams so far this season, so if he's forced to miss the rest of the game, San Francisco will merely lose some depth in their secondary.
Moore (wrist) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury reports, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Moore suffered his wrist injury in Week 3's game against the Chiefs. His health provides depth for the 49ers since Richard Sherman (calf) will be out for a few weeks. Regardless, Moore, who was a third round pick in April's draft, will remain in a special teams role Sunday against the Chargers.
Moore is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a wrist injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Moore's injury is unlikely to significantly impact San Francisco's defense, given that he's the third right cornerback on the depth chart. If Moore is unable to return to Sunday's contest, it will fall to another depth player to take over his special teams duties.
