Matt Moore received the first snap during team drills in Tuesday's practice.
In his first practice with the team, Jay Cutler saw work with the first-team offense a couple plays later. That script should switch over the next couple days, with Cutler eventually taking over all the first-team reps. Despite getting the first snaps today, Moore is headed for a backup role.

The NFL and NFLPA have concluded that the concussion protocol was "not strictly followed" for Matt Moore's head injury during the Wild Card Round against Pittsburgh.

Moore got absolutely leveled by Bud Dupree but miraculously missed only one play. It's troubling that teams are still having a hard time grasping the concussion protocol now that it's been in place for a few seasons. The NFL sent the Dolphins a written warning and said the team's staff will be required to undergo a full review of the league's protocol. It seems like the Dolphins are getting off easy.
Jan 25 - 4:47 PM

Matt Moore completed 29-of-36 passes for 289 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Dolphins' 30-12, Wild Card loss to the Steelers, also losing two fumbles.

Moore was largely crisp, ripping chunk gains against the Steelers' sieve-like pass defense, but it was his three turnovers that killed any chance Miami had of springing the road upset. Moore lost a back-breaking fumble with time winding down in the first half, giving the ball away at the Steelers' eight-yard line. The Dolphins were trying to cut the Steelers' lead to 20-13 going into halftime. Moore also took a savage helmet-to-helmet hit from Bud Dupree that could have very easily concussed him. Moore minded the store down the stretch in Ryan Tannehill's absence, but didn't show enough to suggest he deserves another starting chance going on age 33. Miami's longtime backup is signed for $1.75 million in 2017, and should be back at that price.
Jan 8 - 4:21 PM

Matt Moore completed 24-of-34 passes for 205 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to New England.

Moore wasn't the reason for Miami's loss; New England's passing game simply shredded Miami's barely-there pass defense, which was missing top CB Byron Maxwell. Moore did what was asked of him, going above and beyond managing the game and keeping the Dolphins competitive for at least a few quarters. The Fins are still hoping to get back Ryan Tannehill (knee) for the playoffs, but it's fair to question whether he's a significant upgrade on Moore.
Jan 1 - 5:07 PM

Matt Moore completed 16-of-30 passes for 233 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Dolphins' Week 16 overtime win over the Bills.

Moore completed barely half his passes, but made plays when the Dolphins needed them, and stayed out of the way as Jay Ajayi got fed on the ground. Moore's yardage was inflated by YAC due to awful Bills tackling, but for the second straight game, he did what he needed to do in place of Ryan Tannehill. Moore has gotten the best of hapless divisional opponents New York and Buffalo, but faces a monumental Week 17 test in the New England Patriots. Moore will be hard to trust as a QB2 in that one.

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen praised "gunslinger" Matt Moore.

"He's always reminded me of Matt Hasselbeck," Christensen said. "He could start for a bunch of teams." Moore is on a good run right now after leading a game-winning drive in relief of Ryan Tannehill in Week 14 and dropping four touchdowns on the Jets last Saturday. The road gets tougher as the Dolphins head to Buffalo this week, but Miami clearly thinks Moore is up to the task.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 09:38:00 AM

Matt Moore completed 12-of-18 passes for 236 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Miami's Week 15 win over the Jets.

Moore looked sharp in place of Ryan Tannehill, with three of his six incompletions coming on drops. He threw two of his touchdowns on goal line passes to Dion Sims. Moore connected on a wide open deep shot to Kenny Stills for 52 yards and had Jarvis Landry house a 66-yard TD for his other scores. There's wasn't much of a drop off between Moore and Tannehill. Moore has a matchup with Buffalo in Week 16.

Matt Moore will start the Dolphins' Week 15 game against the Jets on Saturday night.

Our own Raymond Summerlin's favorite player, Moore came on in relief of Ryan Tannehill (knee) this past Sunday and completed 3-of-5 passes for 47 yards to help secure the win over Arizona. Moore last started a game nearly five years ago, in Week 17 of the 2011 season. Moore won't be a recommended fantasy option in a game where rain is expected to be a factor.

Matt Moore completed 3-of-5 passes for 47 yards in relief of Ryan Tannehill Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Moore came in for Tannehill after the starter suffered a left knee injury in the fourth quarter. Moore was not asked to do much the first couple series, but he successfully led a game-winning drive after the Cardinals tied it up late, hitting Kenny Stills twice to set up a short field goal. With Tannehill reportedly out for the season, Moore should close out the year as the starter. He will not be a recommended fantasy option Saturday night against the Jets.

Dolphins QB Matt Moore (concussion) returned to practice Monday.

Moore took a shot to the head in the second preseason game and had been sidelined ever since. He will serve as Ryan Tannehill's backup this season.

Matt Moore left Friday's preseason game with a possible concussion

Moore took an elbow to the facemask at the end of the first half. He walked off under his own power, but is done for the night. Brandon Doughty replaced Moore.

Dolphins re-signed QB Matt Moore to a two-year, $3.5 million contract.

Neither side seemed particularly keen on a reunion, but each struck out in their pursuit of an upgrade. Moore has spent the past five years in Miami, and will be holding Ryan Tannehill's clipboard for the fifth straight season in 2016. Tannehill is extremely durable, leaving Moore little opportunity to get on the field. Moore turns 32 in August.

Free agent QB Matt Moore is visiting the Dolphins on Tuesday.

After striking out on visits to the Colts and Cowboys, Moore could be headed back to the team he has called home since 2011. Moore has attempted just 30 passes in the last four seasons, but he is one of the more capable backups in the league. He is likely looking for something similar to the two-year, $8 million deal Chad Henne signed to back up Blake Bortles in Jacksonville.

Free agent Matt Moore will visit the Colts on Monday.

Moore left his Cowboys visit without a deal. The Colts have a blank space behind Andrew Luck, who had been extremely durable until last season. It will be a weekend of pensive introspection for Rotoworld's Raymond Summerlin, who doesn't understand why the NFL doesn't see what he sees in Moore, a player who is probably the best quarterback in pro football.

Free agent QB Matt Moore will visit the Cowboys on Thursday.

The Cowboys desperately need a capable backup behind an aging and injury prone Tony Romo, and Moore would probably be an improvement on last year's Brandon Weeden/Matt Cassel/Kellen Moore fiasco. Raymond Summerlin has informed the Rotoworld staff that he will be switching his rooting allegiance to the Cowboys if Moore ends up in Big D.
