ESPN's Jeff Legwold expects the Broncos to let FS Rahim Moore walk in free agency.
Moore tied for the team lead in interceptions in 2014, but with Demaryius Thomas also headed for free agency, Moore isn't the team's top priority. Denver is already loaded at defensive back with Pro Bowlers Chris Harris Jr., Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward, so it isn't the end of the world if they lose Moore. The Eagles, Ravens and Redskins could all use upgrades in the secondary. Feb 16 - 4:39 PM

Broncos FS Rahim Moore is completely recovered from the lateral compartment syndrome that ended his 2013 season.

Moore nearly lost his leg as a result of the rare and scary injury, but now all that remains is a large scar. He's penciled back in as the starting free safety, a role he shined in last season.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore (lateral compartment syndrome) has yet to be cleared for a running program.

Moore suffered a recent setback with his leg injury, putting his chances of returning for the postseason in jeopardy. He isn't eligible to come off injured reserve until the AFC Championship game, and would likely be limited to a situational role if he manages to get cleared. Mike Adams will continue to start in his absence. Moore graded out as ProFootballFocus' No. 8 cover safety prior to going down and would provide an upgrade to the Broncos' secondary when healthy.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore (lateral compartment syndrome) said he expects to be medically cleared in January.

Moore is currently on short-term injured reserve and will miss the entire regular season, but is on track to return for the playoffs. He hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from lower leg surgery and was cleared to resume weight training this week. An every-down player before getting hurt, Moore should immediately regain his starting role from Mike Adams when healthy. He had 44 tackles and two interceptions in 10 games prior to going down.

Broncos placed FS Rahim Moore (lateral compartment syndrome) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Moore's regular season is over, but he'll have a chance to return if the Broncos make the AFC Championship Game. Moore's injury — essentially internal bleeding in his leg — required emergency surgery early Monday morning. An every-down player before getting hurt, the 23-year-old Moore was in the midst of a workmanlike campaign. He was playing very well in coverage. Veteran Mike Adams will take his place in the starting lineup, while Michael Huff is taking his roster spot.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore underwent surgery Monday morning to repair bleeding in the muscle sheath in his lower left leg.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore (leg) has been diagnosed with lateral compartment syndrome.

It's a very serious issue, one that could have led to Moore's leg being amputated had the Broncos not acted quickly. Moore is expected to miss "several weeks," with the Denver Post reporting injured reserve is a possibility. Mike Adams will fill in at free safety.

Sources tell the Denver Post that Broncos FS Rahim Moore will miss several weeks with a serious lower leg injury.

He could be headed to injured reserve. Moore went down in the second quarter of Sunday's night's win over the Chiefs. He's started each game so far this year, grading out as ProFootballFocus' No. 8 cover safety. Replacement Mike Adams will be a downgrade.

Broncos assistant secondary coach Sam Garnes said S Rahim Moore made a "big jump" as a tackler in his second season.

"His rookie year, he struggled in the tackling department and he went 180 degrees as far as tackling," said Garnes. "He did a great job tackling, which I know contributed to us being pretty good against the run." Despite his notable postseason struggles, Moore had a solid season grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 10 safety. He has intriguing IDP upside in 2013.

Broncos VP of Football Operations John Elway reiterated his confidence in Rahim Moore as Denver's starting free safety.

"Yes, they are," Elway said when asked whether Moore and SS Mike Adams are still starters. The Broncos didn't sign a free-agent safety, or draft one. Although Moore was a playoff goat, he graded out as a top-ten safety in Pro Football Focus' 2012 regular season ratings and recorded 72 tackles with one INT.

Rahim Moore is expected to return as the Broncos' starting free safety in 2013, with Mike Adams staying at strong safety.

Moore was victimized on Jacoby Jones' 70-yard touchdown at the end of regulation in the Divisional Round, and has managed just two interceptions through 31 NFL games. Ball skills were supposed to be his calling card coming out of UCLA. Pro Football Focus did grade Moore as a top-ten overall safety in 2012, so he wasn't a regular season liability. Adams was 27th among 88 qualifiers.

Rahim Moore will compete with Mike Adams and Quinton Carter for the Broncos' two starting safety spots this season.

Moore was believed to be in direct competition with Adams at free safety, but he's now viewed as a legit option at strong safety after bulking up considerably in the upper body. The three safeties could end up in a rotation if Moore doesn't impress enough in camp to win a starting job outright.

Broncos second-round S Rahim Moore has been passed by practice squad-type Rafael Bush in Denver's dime packages.

Moore opened the season as a starter, but was benched after five games for poor tackling and coverage -- the perfect storm for a safety. Bush is a career special teamer. He had one tackle in the Wild Card round win.
