Date:

Lance Moore (groin) has resumed practicing in full.

Moore missed the first two games, leaving Justin Brown to act as the No. 3 receiver. The veteran should be fine to return as a fourth option behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller.
Sep 16 - 12:25 PM

Lance Moore (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday night's Week 2 game against the Ravens.

Moore will miss his second straight game and has yet to resume practicing. He'll have 10 days to get ready for Week 3.
Sep 10 - 4:11 PM

Lance Moore (groin) remains sidelined at Steelers practice.

Moore missed Week 1 and looks like a long shot to play Thursday against the Ravens on a short week. He'll then have ten days to get ready for Week 3.
Sep 9 - 8:26 PM

Lance Moore (groin) is listed as out for Week 1 against Cleveland.

Expect the Steelers to turn to Justin Brown at slot receiver, although they may just focus on two-tight end sets of Heath Miller and Matt Speath, with Markus Wheaton and Antonio Brown outside. The Steelers have provided no details on Moore's injury, but he was never on the radar in fantasy leagues.
Sep 5 - 3:06 PM

Lance Moore (groin) remained out of Steelers practice Thursday.

With Martavis Bryant (shoulder) also sidelined, the Steelers are looking like they'll be thin at wideout for Week 1. It could be a nice boost for Heath Miller.
Sep 4 - 3:51 PM

Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Moore played in the Thursday's preseason finale, so this looks to be a minor injury. Justin Brown has been getting the majority of his slot reps. Moore could return to practice later this week.
Sep 3 - 4:05 PM

Lance Moore was inactive for Thursday night's third preseason game with an undisclosed injury.

ESPN's box score had Moore with one target, but he didn't play. Moore has caught just one ball for six yards in the preseason. Moore has had a quiet camp, to the point he hasn't even warranted a Rotoworld blurb since June. He's tentatively expected to open the season as Pittsburgh's slot receiver, between Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton. But we wouldn't write that in stone.
Aug 21 - 11:13 PM

ESPN Steelers reporter Scott Brown says Lance Moore "stood out as much as any player" during offseason practices.

Moore has proven to a quick study in Todd Haley's scheme, which isn't surprising for a savvy eight-year veteran. We're still skeptical he'll be effective in replacing Jerricho Cotchery. The 5'9/182 Moore won't have the same red-zone impact as the 6'1/200 Cotchery, and had separation issues in his age-30 season in New Orleans. There's much more upside in a flier on likely starting "X" Markus Wheaton.

Steelers signed WR Lance Moore to a two-year contract.

Moore, who turns 31 before the season, played behind rookie Kenny Stills in New Orleans last year, recording a 37-457-2 stat line across 13 appearances. He generally looked to be running out of gas, and was released by the Saints in early March. Moore had a few nice seasons with Drew Brees, but is a 5-foot-9, 182-pound possession receiver who won't cure Pittsburgh's red-zone woes. Moore is an uninspiring option to replace Jerricho Cotchery.
Mar 21 - 3:45 PM

Free agent Lance Moore's visit with the Steelers ended without a contract.

Moore is considered a fallback option for the Steelers if they can't retain free agent Jerricho Cotchery. Right now, Cotchery is reportedly leaning toward the Panthers.
Mar 20 - 12:23 PM

The Boston Globe reports the Patriots have "checked out" free agent Lance Moore.

New England is also sniffing around Jason Avant and Kenny Britt, even after re-upping Julian Edelman and signing Brandon LaFell. Moore will visit the Steelers on Tuesday, his first trip since being released by the Saints two weeks ago. He's a sure pair of hands but has little-to-no playmaking ability at 30 years old.
Mar 18 - 10:05 AM

The Steelers will host free agent Lance Moore on Tuesday.

It'll be Moore's first visit of free agency. He's a possible fallback option if the Steelers miss out on re-signing Jerricho Cotchery, who is visiting the Panthers on Monday. Moore, 30, is a limited-talent possession receiver.
Mar 16 - 7:52 PM

Saints released WR Lance Moore.

The Saints tried to trade Moore, but nobody was willing to take on his $3.6 million. New Orleans saves over $2.531 million against the cap with the move but eats over $2.537 million in dead money. Moore was the longest-tenured Saint prior to his release. At 31 (in August) and a product of Drew Brees and Sean Payton, we don't anticipate a hot market. Moore could make some sense reuniting with ex-Saints assistant Joe Lombardi, the new OC in Detroit.
Mar 7 - 11:33 AM

Lance Moore indicated on Twitter that he's been released by the Saints.

"Thank you New Orleans for an amazing nine years," tweeted Moore. "Who Dat Nation, the best on earth!!!" The Saints were said to be shopping Moore but apparently found no takers. Moore will be 31 before Week 1 and isn't worth the $3.6 million he's due. If the Saints indeed are releasing him, they'll clear $2.5 million against the cap. Kenny Stills will have a bigger 2014 role.
