Lions coach Jim Caldwell expects Lance Moore (ankle) to return in Week 15 against the Saints.

Moore has been out since Week 12 with an ankle injury. He will be the Lions' third receiver behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate at the Superdome.

Lions declared WR Lance Moore, CB Dwight Bentley, DT Jermelle Cudjo, OT Corey Robinson, T LaAdrian Waddle, DT Gabe Wright and TE Tim Wright inactive for Week 14 against the Rams.

Moore (ankle) practiced on a limited basis this week but couldn't get the green light. Ziggy Ansah (hamstring/elbow), Calvin Johnson (ankle), Travis Lewis (ankle), Michael Ola (knee), Glover Quin (ankle), Caraun Reid (ankle) and Travis Swanson (ankle) are all active.

Lions WR Lance Moore was forced from Detroit's Week 12 game against the Eagles with an ankle injury.

Moore is officially "doubtful," but won't return. The Lions' No. 3 receiver had a 14-yard catch before going down. Corey Fuller is now in the game behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

Lance Moore was held catch-less in Week 7.

Moore turned in productive Weeks 5-6 games with Eric Ebron on the shelf, but Ebron was back Sunday against the Vikings, and Moore was targeted only once.

Lance Moore caught 5-of-6 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown Week 6 against the Bears.

Moore got loose down the seam for a 20-yard touchdown to get the scoring started, and he made a big 42-yard play to set up a field goal in the third quarter. Moore now has 14 targets over the last two games, but he is unlikely to develop consistent fantasy value playing behind target hogs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

Lance Moore nabbed six of eight targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 5 loss to the Cardinals.

The fact that Moore was targeted eight times shows just how out of hand things got on Sunday. A distant third on the Lions’ receiving depth chart, Moore’s fantasy contributions this year will be few and far between.

The Oakland Press believes Lance Moore’s knowledge of OC Joe Lombardi’s system gives him an inside track on a roster spot.

The Lions don’t have a set depth chart behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, with Moore, Corey Fuller, Ryan Broyles, and T.J. Jones all competing for jobs. Moore had his best seasons while Lombardi was on staff with the Saints, but remains far from a lock for the 53-man roster.

Lions signed WR Lance Moore, formerly of the Steelers, to a one-year contract.

The longtime Saint spent 2014 with the Steelers, catching just 14 passes in 14 games. Moore was a healthy scratch for Pittsburgh's Wild Card loss. Going on 32, Moore will be reuniting with ex-Saints assistant Joe Lombardi in Detroit. Signed for his sure hands and veteran status, Moore won't be assured of making the 53-man roster. His days of fantasy relevance are long gone.

Steelers released WR Lance Moore.

With Antonio Brown catching everything in sight last season, Moore became an afterthought in the Steelers' passing game. Falling behind Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton, Moore finished with just 14 catches, his lowest total since 2009. Moore's release saves Pittsburgh $1.5 million in cap room. Coming up on his 32nd birthday, Moore will have a weak free agent market.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports WR Lance Moore has requested his release from the Steelers.

Pittsburgh will likely willingly grant Moore his wish. 32 in August, Moore caught just 14 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns in his first season with the Steelers. He was a routine inactive down the stretch and for the playoff game loss to the Ravens. Releasing Moore will clear over $1 million in cap space.

Lance Moore was a healthy scratch in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Ravens.

Signed to fill the Jerricho Cotchery role, Moore instead flopped. The ex-Saint caught 14 passes for 198 yards with two touchdowns, falling far behind both Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant. Moore, who turns 32 in August, is no lock to return to Pittsburgh for the second year of his two-year deal. "I just want to play," he said. "Whether it is here or somewhere else, to me it doesn't matter. I'd love to be here."

Lance Moore caught two passes for 12 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans.

Moore saw just the two targets. His score came on a fake WR sweep-turned-reverse to Antonio Brown where Brown hit Moore in stride for the three-yard touchdown. Moore has touchdowns in back-to-back games, but isn't a fantasy option as the Steelers' No. 3 or 4 receiver. He's merely a role player.
Tue, Oct 21, 2014 12:39:00 AM

Lance Moore caught 1-of-6 targets for a 26-yard touchdown in Pittsburgh's Week 6 loss to the Browns.

It was the first time all season Moore drew more than one look. Perhaps now he'll finally move ahead of Justin Brown on the depth chart, who has been brutal from the opening snap this season. Neither will come into fantasy value across the season's final three months.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 06:16:00 PM

The Steelers believe Justin Brown is a better receiver than Lance Moore.

Some have been wondering why Moore, expected to play the Jerricho Cotchery role, has played just 28 snaps all season. The answer is simply that the Steelers prefer Brown, their 2013 sixth-rounder. Both players are far off the fantasy radar as No. 4/5 options for Big Ben.
