Should be ready Week 4/5

Coach Kliff Kingsbury expects Moore (hamstring) to be ready for Week 4 or 5, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: While already ruled out for Week 3, missing a third straight game, the second-year wideout apparently has made enough progress to inspire a guarantee from Kingsbury, who said Moore will be back for Week 5 against Philadelphia if he doesn't return Week 4 against Carolina. The Cardinals are set to play a third straight game without Moore, DeAndre Hopkins (suspended through Week 6) and Antoine Wesley (IR - hip) this Sunday against the Rams, leaving Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Greg Dortch as the top three WRs again.

Won't play Sunday

Coach Kliff Kingsbury relayed Friday that Moore (hamstring) will be out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Moore, who hasn't practiced since hurting his hamstring Sept. 8, is thus slated to miss a third straight game to begin the season. In his continued absence, Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Greg Dortch are on track to lead the Cardinals' wide receiver corps Sunday versus Los Angeles. Per Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com, when asked when Moore might return to action, Kingsbury replied "I'm hoping within the next two weeks he'll play. If not next week, I would guarantee the game after."

Still sidelined at practice

Moore (hamstring) officially didn't practice Thursday, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Analysis: According to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site, Moore was seen working off to the side in the second session of Week 3 prep, but the second-year wide receiver again went down as a non-participant. Moore hasn't practiced since hurting his hamstring Sept. 8, and he seemingly is in danger of missing a third straight game to begin the campaign. Friday's injury report may provide clarity, one way or another, about his ability to play Sunday versus the Rams.

Works on the side Thursday

Moore (hamstring) worked on the side during Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: At this stage, Moore -- who has missed the first two games of the season -- looks iffy for Sunday's game against the Rams, though if he manages to increase his practice activity Friday, he could head into the weekend with a chance to play in Week 3. If Moore remains sidelined this weekend, however, Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Greg Dortch would be in line to lead the Cardinals' wide receiver corps versus Los Angeles.

Still not practicing

Moore (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Analysis: Since injuring his hamstring Sept. 8, Moore hasn't practiced and has missed the first two games of the season. Coach Kliff Kingsbury has called Moore day-to-day in back-to-back weeks, but the second-year wide receivers lack of on-field work doesn't reflect that sentiment. Still, Moore has two more chances to prove his health before the Cardinals potentially make a ruling on his availability for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Called day-to-day

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday that Moore (hamstring) is day-to-day, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Analysis: Moore is still looking to make his 2022 debut, having sat out Arizona's first two games due to a lingering hamstring issue. Per Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com, Moore doesn't appear to be participating in Wednesday's practice. Greg Dortch has been the main beneficiary of increased opportunities with Moore and Andy Isabella (hamstring) sidelined.

Could miss multiple weeks

Moore (hamstring) could be out for a few more weeks, but will avoid IR, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Moore has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against Las Vegas, but it sounds like he will miss at least one more game according to this report. With Andy Isabella (hamstring) also ruled out Sunday, there will be no shortage of snaps available to Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Greg Dortch.

Sep 17, 2022 9:10 PM EST


Out again this week

Moore (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Las Vegas, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Andy Isabella (hamstring) also ruled out, there will be no shortage of snaps available to Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Greg Dortch -- a trio that combined for 19 targets but only 119 yards in a season-opening loss to Kansas City. Moore is missing out on his best opportunity for a second-year breakout, as targets could be harder to come by late in the season if Brown, DeAndre Hopkins (suspension) and TE Zach Ertz are all available at the same time.

Sep 16, 2022 10:19 AM EST


Not practicing again

Moore (hamstring) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic reports.

Analysis: He'll be listed as a non-participant in practice for the second day in a row, which doesn't bode well for Moore's early chances of avoiding a second straight placement on the inactive list to begin the season. Meanwhile, depth wideout Andy Isabella (back) was also sidelined for a second straight practice Thursday, so if both he and Moore aren't available Sunday versus the Raiders, the Cardinals could have to turn to Andre Baccellia or depth tight end Stephen Anderson to log more reps at receiver behind Marquise Brown, A.j. Green and Greg Dortch.

DNP on Wednesday

Moore (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: On Monday, coach Kliff Kingsbury told Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic that Moore was "pretty much day-to-day at this point," but the second-year wide receiver has yet to log a practice rep since making an early exit from last Thursday's session due to a hamstring injury. Once he gets back on the field, Moore will have an opportunity to fill in in a receiving corps that's without DeAndre Hopkins (suspension) for the first six games of the season, but it remains to be seen if he'll be available Sunday at Las Vegas.

Day-to-day with hamstring

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that Moore (hamstring) is "pretty much day-to-day at this point," Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic reports.

Analysis: Moore left last Thursday's practice early due to the issue and ultimately didn't suit up for the preseason opener. He underwent and MRI but the results are unknown, though he appears to have avoided a significant injury. Wednesday's practice report should provide further clarity on the second-year wideout's availability for Week 2, but the final decision may not come until closer to Sunday. If available, Moore figures to have a sizable role in the Cardinals offense until DeAndre Hopkins returns from suspension.

Ruled out for Week 1

Moore (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest versus the Chiefs, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Moore left Thursday's practice early due to a hamstring injury, which resulted in no on-field activity to wrap up Week 1 prep. He was set to have an MRI, but the results of that evaluation are unknown. Coach Kliff Kingsbury told Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com on Friday that Moore picked up the issue while running, and the second-year wide receiver now will have to wait to make his season debut. With DeAndre Hopkins suspended six games to begin the campaign and Antoine Wesley (hip) on injured reserve, the Cardinals' receiving corps will be down to Marquise Brown, A.J. Green, Andy Isabella and Greg Dortch this weekend.

Sep 9, 2022 1:38 PM EST


Not spotted at practice

Moore (hamstring) wasn't spotted during the media-access portion of Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Moore was added to the Cardinals' Week 1 injury report Thursday and his absence from the early portion of Friday's session doesn't bode well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Chiefs. Look for added clarity with regard to the wideout's status to arrive once the team's Friday injury report is posted. If Moore is out or limited this weekend, Andy Isabella and Greg Dortch would be candidates for added snaps behind Marquise Brown and A.J. Green.

Sep 9, 2022 9:29 AM EST


Set for MRI on hamstring

Moore injured his hamstring in Thursday's practice and is set to undergo an MRI, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: The extent of the issue is unknown after missing time in the preseason with an undisclosed injury, but the second-year wide receiver will be evaluated further to get a sense of his availability for Week 1 against the Chiefs. The Cardinals already will be without DeAndre Hopkins due to his six-game suspension and Antoine Wesley (hip, IR), so the team's current healthy options at the position are Marquise Brown, A.J. Green, Andy Isabella and Greg Dortch

Sep 8, 2022 1:50 PM EST


Clear for Week 1

Moore (undisclosed) wasn't listed on the Cardinals' injury report Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: After the conclusion of Arizona's preseason slate, coach Kliff Kingsbury included Moore among three other Cards as being a "close call" for Week 1 action, according to Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com. With a full session now behind him, the 2021 second-round pick is good to go for Week 1, when he'll be looking to fill some of the void left by the suspended DeAndre Hopkins along with Marquise Brown and A.J. Green. As a rookie last season, Moore, racked up 511 yards from scrimmage and one receiving TD on 72 touches.

Sep 7, 2022 2:35 PM EST


Practices Monday

Moore (undisclosed) practiced Monday, Jose M. RomeroArizona Republic reports.

Analysis: Moore is dealing with an undisclosed injury, but the report notes that coach Kliff Kingsbury said that he expects the wideout to progress through the week and hopefully be ready for Sunday's season opener against Kansas City. Added context regarding the nature of Moore's injury and Week 1 status should arrive Wednesday when the Cardinals' official practice report is posted.

Sep 5, 2022 2:22 PM EST


Dealing with unspecified injury

Moore (undisclosed) is one of four players coach Kliff Kingsbury listed as potential close calls for Week 1 against the Chiefs, Tyler Drake of 98.7 FM reports.

Analysis: It sounds like a new injury for Moore, who Kingsbury deemed "day-to-day" without elaborating on the location of the issue, per Bo Brack of PHNX Sports. With DeAndre Hopkins suspended the first six weeks of the regular season, Moore has a nice opportunity awaiting if his health cooperates.

No action this preseason

Moore didn't play in Saturday's preseason contest in Tennessee.

Analysis: Coach Kliff Kingsbury kept the core of the Cardinals offense on the sideline for all three of the team's exhibition, meaning Moore's next chance to get on the field is Sunday, Sept. 11 versus the Chiefs. At that time, top wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will he logging a six-game suspension, and Moore, Marquise Brown and A.J. Green figure to profit. A 2021 second-round pick, Moore flashed as a rookie last year but ultimately was inconsistent, recording 54 catches (on 64 targets) for 435 yards and one touchdown, 18 carries for 76 yards, 22.4 yards on 13 kick returns and 8.1 yards on 21 punt returns.

Aug 28, 2022 6:56 PM EST


Doesn't play Sunday

Moore didn't play during Sunday's preseason defeat to the Ravens.

Analysis: For the second consecutive exhibition, the Cardinals kept their top four wide receivers in street clothes (also, DeAndre Hopkins, Marquise Brown and A.J. Green). Last week, Kyler Murray relayed to Darren Urban of the team's official site that he won't suit up this preseason, but it's unclear if Moore and his position mates will sit out again, too. If the entire group doesn't see action until Week 1, Moore should be a beneficiary of Hopkins' six-game suspension to begin the campaign. Moore, a 2021 second-round pick, is looking to build upon a 54-435-1 line on 64 targets in 14 appearances from his rookie season.

Aug 22, 2022 6:07 PM EST


Higher expectations in store

Moore's prospects have risen since Monday's announcement that DeAndre Hopkins faces a six-game suspension to kick off the 2022 season, Jess Root of USA Today reports.

Analysis: The ban regards performance-enhancing substances, and in Hopkins' absence, newly acquired Marquise Brown, A.J. Green, Moore and even Antoine Wesley stand to benefit at wide receiver. Considering Hopkins works mostly on the outside, Brown likely will join Green there on the majority of snaps, leaving the slot open for the likes of Moore and veteran tight end Zach Ertz. Moore, a 2021 second-round pick, fared modestly as a rookie last season, recording 54 catches (on 64 targets) for 435 yards and one touchdown while taking 18 carries for 76 yards in 14 contests.
