Texans signed DE Fili Moala.

Moala, 30, missed all of last season with a partially torn ACL after completely tearing it in 2012. A rotational end in a 3-4 defense, Moala will be behind the eight ball for a roster spot in Houston.

Colts placed DE Fili Moala (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Moala sustained a partial tear of his right ACL when he collided with a teammate during a "non-contact" OTA. It's the same ligament tear that he fully tore in November of 2012. Moala was a rotational end for the Colts last year, playing nearly half the snaps and producing 1.5 sacks and 21 quarterback hurries. In March, he was re-signed to a one-year, $1.4 million contract as an unrestricted free agent.

Colts re-signed DE Fili Moala.

Moala, a 2009 second-round pick, appeared in all 16 games last season, starting six, and registered just 19 tackles and 1.5 sacks. He's purely a rotational lineman.

Colts placed DT Fili Moala on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Moala was the only Colt not to practice in the run up to Saturday's Wild Card win. His injury isn't believed to be serious. A former second-round bust, Moala was a middling part of the Colts' D-line rotation this season, providing a body more than anything else. He played 513 snaps, generating little pressure while struggling against the run. Moala is headed to the open market, where he could have trouble earning guaranteed money.

Colts re-signed DT Fili Moala to a one-year contract.

Moala, 28 in June, has been a major disappointment since Bill Polian took him with the 56th overall pick in the 2009 draft. After flashing at least some semblance of pass-rush ability in an injury-shortened 2012 season, the new Colts regime is giving Moala one more shot. Moala tore his ACL in Week 12. We suspect he'll be ready for Week 1, but likely won't be counted on to start.

Colts DT Fili Moala suffered a torn right ACL in Indianapolis' Week 12 win over the Bills, and is done for the season.

He's been placed on injured reserve. It's a big blow for the Colts' shaky run defense, though they have a pair of potential replacements in Martin Tevaseu and Josh Chapman. Moala had been battling knee issues all season, and missed three of the Colts' first 11 games. Making $615,000 in the final year of his rookie deal, Moala will be up against it to be ready for camp next summer.
Mon, Nov 26, 2012 03:03:00 PM

Colts DT Fili Moala left Sunday's Week 12 contest against the Bills with a right knee injury.

Moala was injured late in the fourth quarter. Indianapolis is down to Antonio Johnson and Martin Tevaseu as their lone gap fillers. Moala has been battling the knee all season.
Sun, Nov 25, 2012 04:08:00 PM

Colts DTs Fili Moala (knee) and Martin Tevaseu (ankle) have been ruled out for Week 6 against the Jets.

Both players were forced from last week's game against the Packers. Second-year pro Drake Nevis will slide in next to Antonio Johnson, while newly signed Antonio Dixon is slated to back up. The Colts rank No. 26 against the run, but Shonn Greene and the Jets should make Indy look like a top-10 defense.
Sat, Oct 13, 2012 01:28:00 PM

Colts DT Fili Moala was forced from Sunday's game with a sprained knee, and is questionable to return.

Moala went down mid-way through the first quarter, and is likely done for the day. Second-year pro Drake Nevis is now in at defensive tackle.
Sun, Oct 7, 2012 02:14:00 PM

The Colts have moved 2009 second-round pick Fili Moala from defensive tackle to end in their new defense.

He'll work behind LE Cory Redding. At 6-foot-4, 303, Moala does possess the requisite size to become a "five technique," run-stopping defensive end in the 3-4. Moala has been a poor run defender his first three seasons, however.
Sun, Apr 22, 2012 02:41:00 PM

Colts DT Fili Moala left Sunday's game against the Browns in the first half with an ankle injury and did not return.

Moala had two tackles in the first half before leaving. The Colts rolled with a rotation at tackle that included Antonio Johnson, Eric Foster and Drake Nevis.
Mon, Sep 19, 2011 11:10:00 AM

Colts DT Fili Moala was convicted on his September of 2010 DUI arrest in an Indianapolis court Thursday.

Moala avoided jail time, instead getting 180 days of probation. The NFL's Conduct Policy was in effect during the time of Moala's arrest, so it's likely that the conviction will at least by reviewed by the league office. Moala will return this season as the Colts' top interior defensive lineman.
Thu, Aug 4, 2011 06:12:00 PM

Colts president Bill Polian says that DT Fili Moala "exceeded our expectations" in his second season.

"A lot of pundits were saying he was a failed draft choice last year," said Polian. "Well, that is not the case, as he proved this year." The 56th overall pick in the 2009 draft, Moala went from being inactive as a rookie to a 16-game starter in his second year. Though he has a ways to go as a run defender, Moala led Colts defensive tackles in QB hits and tackles for loss.

Colts DT Fili Moala appears to have taken over Antonio Johnson's starting job.

We'll see how long it lasts. Moala started over Johnson in the opener, and Houston's offensive line blew the Colts off the ball all game while opening holes for Arian Foster. Johnson is expected to remain in the mix, splitting time with Moala.
