Remaining in Houston

Moore will sign a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Texans on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Moore began the 2021 campaign on the Texans' practice squad and was elevated to the active roster for several games early in the season before landing a permanent roster spot in mid-October. He showed glimpses of potential, including his Week 5 performance against the Patriots in which he hauled in all five of his targets for 109 yards and a touchdown. The 28-year-old will presumably have to compete for a roster spot once again during training camp in 2022.

Scores in finale

Moore caught three of three targets for 38 yards and a 28-yard touchdown in Week 18's 28-25 loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: Moore scored his second touchdown and first since Week 5. He was normally involved in every game, but played more than 30 percent of the offensive snaps just four times in 12 games. The 28-year-old wide receiver enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, while the franchise enters what appears to be a busy offseason.

Good to go Sunday

Moore (illness) is active for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

Analysis: The 28-year-old was questionable due to the illness but will play in Houston's season finale. Moore and Danny Amendola should compete for reps as the Texans' No. 3 wideout with Chris Conley (knee) inactive Sunday.

Questionable Sunday

Moore (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Moore was a non-participant in Thursday's practice session and was limited Friday. He was unavailable for last week's loss to the 49ers since he was on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Week 18.

Jan 7, 2022 1:21 PM EST

Doesn't practice Thursday

Moore (illness) didn't participate in Thursday's practice session.

Analysis: Moore was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday but was unable to take the field Thursday due to an illness. Whether the issue impacts his availability for Sunday's game against the Titans remains to be seen.

Jan 6, 2022 2:28 PM EST

Activated off reserve/COVID-19 list

Moore returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: The wide receiver was placed on the COVID list Dec. 29, missing last week's loss to the 49ers. Moore will return to his role as a depth option on the active roster, a role that has led to 18 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown for him in 2021.

Jan 5, 2022 3:43 PM EST

Moved to COVID-19 list

Moore was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: Even if he returns in short order, Moore likely will be buried on the depth chart after two other Houston receivers (including Brandin Cooks) were activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Active, no run on offense

Moore was active and did not play on offense during Houston's 30-16 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: Moore, who was a healthy inactive the previous week, returned to active duty but played on special teams (21 snaps) only. He took a back seat to Jordan Veasy, a practice squad receiver that played 15 snaps with the offense in his first game action of 2021.

Dec 20, 2021 3:57 AM EST

Inactive Week 14

Moore was a healthy inactive for Week 14 against Seattle.

Analysis: Danny Amendola's knee injury seemingly created an opportunity for Moore, but head coach David Culley is looking elsewhere for slot receivers. Davion Davis was the first to play in the slot, but he left after one catch and one play with an ankle injury. After that, it was a combination of Phillip Dorsett and Chris Conley. Moore's status could change Week 15 at Jacksonville, pending Davis' health.

Dec 13, 2021 4:57 AM EST

Gets no bump without Amendola

Moore played 13 of 52 snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Danny Amendola (knee) was inactive Sunday, but that did not translate into an increase of playing time for Moore, who watched Davion Davis enter the starting lineup as the slot receiver. Davis was targeted twice (no catches) in 20 snaps. With Amendola expected to miss another three weeks at a minimum, there should be opportunities for both Moore and Davis, but Houston's passing attack doesn't offer much hope for fantasy managers.

Ready to fill in at slot

Moore is the likely replacement at slot receiver for the injured Danny Amendola (knee) on Sunday against the Colts, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Moore, who opened the season on the practice squad, was the primary slot receiver earlier when Amendola missed four games due to a hamstring injury. He was made a permanent resident on the active roster following Week 5, when he impressed with five grabs, 109 yards and a touchdown in a loss to New England. He's been marginalized since Amendola returned, but Moore's in line for an uptick in targets Sunday and beyond. Amendola is set to miss at least four games.

Catches lone target in loss

Moore caught his only target for minus-4 yards in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Moore was fourth among wide receivers with 11 snaps and is last among the position group's regulars, on the field for just 32.1 percent of plays. He had a brief spasm of activity Weeks 5 and 6, but since then he's totaled five catches, five targets and 26 yards over five games. By now, the 28-year-old wide receiver is a well-known commodity and is unlikely to gain a larger share of playing time for a team slowly turning its focus to next season.

Nov 29, 2021 5:29 AM EST

Targets remain up, but not yards

Moore caught four of five targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 31-3 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: One week after Moore's breakout game against the Patriots, he remained a big part of the Texans' passing offense, but it did not translate into a meaningful impact Week 6. Moore's had 10 targets the last two weeks, but he now must deal with added competition from rookie Nico Collins, who returned following a three-week stint on the injured list.

Oct 18, 2021 6:39 AM EST

Gets permanent roster spot

The Texans signed Moore off their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Previously elevated from the practice squad ahead of the team's Week 5 loss to the Patriots, Moore was immediately thrust into a regular spot in Houston's three-receiver sets alongside Brandin Cooks and Chris Conley. The 28-year-old made quite an impression in only his second game with Houston, finishing with five receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown on five targets. The breakout performance should be enough to keep Moore involved in the game plan Sunday in Indianapolis, but he may end up seeing a smaller share of the snaps if slot specialist Danny Amendola (thigh) is cleared to return from a three-game absence.

Oct 12, 2021 2:32 PM EST

Reverts back to practice squad

Moore reverted back to the Texans' practice squad Monday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: With Danny Amendola (thigh) sidelined, Moore was elevated to the active roster for Sunday's contest against the Patriots. He didn't disappoint as he totaled five catches for 109 yards -- both career-highs -- and one touchdown. The 28-year-old has already been elevated twice, so the Texans will need to sign him to a contract if they want him on the active roster for Week 6.

Oct 11, 2021 2:16 PM EST

Tops 100 yards

Moore recorded five receptions on five targets for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss against the Patriots.

Analysis: Moore was elevated from the practice squad Saturday as depth to cover for the absence of Danny Amendola (thigh). He made the most of that chance by delivering an impressive leaping catch over J.C. Jackson to deliver a 67-yard touchdown reception. While that was the highlight his performance, Moore also managed gains of 27 and 13 yards. Moore has now been elevated from the practice squad on two occasions, so he may receive a contract to join the active roster ahead of the team's Week 6 matchup against the Colts.

Oct 10, 2021 4:15 PM EST

Rejoins active roster

Moore was elevated from the Texans' practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: Moore was active in Week 3 but played just two offensive snaps in the loss to Carolina. He'll play a depth role at wide receiver with Danny Amendola (thigh) questionable against the Patriots.

Oct 9, 2021 2:11 PM EST

Heads back to practice squad

Moore reverted to the Texans' practice squad Friday.

Analysis: Moore was elevated from the practice squad to serve as depth at receiver with Danny Amendola (thigh) and Nico Collins (shoulder) unavailable for the Texans' Week 3 matchup against the Panthers. The 2016 fourth-rounder served mainly on special teams and played just two offensive snaps in the loss. Moore recorded a tackle on punt coverage, but he's unlikely to be a significant fantasy contributor if he rejoins the active roster at some point.

Sep 24, 2021 6:55 PM EST

Promoted before TNF

Moore was elevated from the practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Panthers.

Analysis: If he's active, Moore will work as a depth target for rookie quarterback Davis Mills in Mills' first NFL start. Moore has 61 games of NFL experience under his belt, all with Baltimore. The 28-year-old wide receiver totaled 47 catches for 511 yards and four touchdowns over the course of five seasons with the Ravens.

Sep 23, 2021 1:42 PM EST

Returns to Houston

Moore was signed to Houston's practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Moore jumps back to the organization with which he spent the summer and was released by a day earlier. Looking at the 53-man roster and the five receivers kept, one gets the feeling the Texans aren't done yet at the position. Texans general manager Nick Caserio said Anthony Miller (shoulder) is expected to return "at some point this season," which doesn't bode well. Additionally, Houston kept Andre Roberts, a Pro Bowl kick returner who didn't play in a preseason game due to a knee injury. All that suggests Moore, who has history in Baltimore with Houston head coach David Culley, could be on the roster come Week 1.
