The Indy Star suggests newly re-signed Mewelde Moore will get some reps as a third-down back.
With Donald Brown (ankle) on IR and Delone Carter (ankle) in serious doubt for Week 15, the Colts are scraping the bottom of the barrel. Moore was with the Colts for the first 11 games of the year, focusing on pass protection while getting just 13 touches. He'll only see the field against the Texans Sunday when Vick Ballard gets gassed. Wed, Dec 12, 2012 08:14:00 AM

Colts released RB Mewelde Moore and DT Antonio Dixon.

Moore's release is a bit surprising because he was Indy's primary passing-down back when healthy. The Colts feel better about their running back depth chart now, with Donald Brown healthy and Vick Ballard coming on. Dixon was only in Indianapolis for a few weeks on a trial run. He didn't show enough.

Mewelde Moore (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Moore hasn't played since Week 3, but he'll be needed now that Donald Brown (knee) is out 2-3 weeks. Vick Ballard will start, Delone Carter will be the backup on early downs and Moore will handle the third-down work. Expect a fistful of touches for the ex-Steelers passing-down back.

Colts signed RB Mewelde Moore and waived QB David Legree.

Purely a passing-down specialist entering his age-30 season, Moore averaged an impressive 7.1 yards on 22 carries and 9.5 yards on 11 catches under new Colts OC Bruce Arians in Pittsburgh last year. The signing suggests Arians is not convinced Donald Brown can handle pass-protection duties on third downs. Legree was undrafted out of Hampton University.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review believes the chance that Rashard Mendenhall (torn ACL) might miss the 2012 season could influence the Steelers to re-sign free agent Mewelde Moore.

The Steelers already have Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer and John Clay under contract behind Mendenhall, but none have near the experience Moore does. Five months shy of his 30th birthday, Moore has averaged 4.5 yards on 494 career carries, and is an asset in the passing game. Regardless of whether Moore is re-signed, Redman will be first up if Mendenhall doesn't play.

Mewelde Moore (knee) missed practice again on Friday.

He's not going to play at Denver. Coordinator Bruce Arians confirmed that Isaac Redman will function as the every-down back, getting his rest when the Broncos have the ball. "I have all the confidence in the world in [Redman] as a runner, pass receiver and a blocker," Arians said.

Coach Mike Tomlin categorized RB Mewelde Moore (knee) and CB Cortez Allen (shoulder) as "questionable at best" for Sunday's game at Denver.

The Steelers have no plans to sign a running back "at this time," though Chad Spann could be promoted from the practice squad if Moore can't practice by Friday. Moore's playoff draft stock takes a hit due to his uncertain status.
Tue, Jan 3, 2012 03:02:00 PM

Steelers declared RB Mewelde Moore, LB Chris Carter, LB LaMarr Woodley, OL Doug Legursky, DE Al Woods, OL J. Meredith and WR Arnaz Battle inactive for Week 17 against the Browns.

Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman will be used more on third downs with Moore ruled out. Jason Worilds replaces LaMarr Woodley at outside linebacker.
Sun, Jan 1, 2012 02:50:00 PM

Mewelde Moore (knee) is not expected to return for the Steelers' regular season finale.

Isaac Redman is shaping up as a sneaky Week 17 play. The Steelers may take it easy on Rashard Mendenhall with one eye on the playoffs and the Browns rank 30th against the run. Redman had eight carries for 35 yards with a touchdown last week.
Tue, Dec 27, 2011 12:21:00 PM

Steelers RB Mewelde Moore (sprained MCL) is out indefinitely.

The Steelers won't feel the loss of Moore very much. He's been passed by Isaac Redman on the depth chart and has just 33 touches in 12 games this season.
Tue, Dec 20, 2011 12:11:00 PM

Mewelde Moore sustained a hamstring injury in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Moore was unable to finish the game. The Steelers' No. 3 back has a total of 27 touches in 10 appearances this season.
Mon, Dec 5, 2011 10:32:00 AM

Steelers declared RB Mewelde Moore, RT Marcus Gilbert, NT Casey Hampton, OLB James Harrison, OLB Jason Worilds, G Chris Kemoeatu, and DE Aaron Smith inactive for Week 6 against Jacksonville.

Worilds, a former second-round pick, returned to practice this week but was ruled out on the final injury report. Gilbert has been the team's starting right tackle, but aggravated a significant shoulder injury in Week 5.
Sun, Oct 16, 2011 12:02:00 PM

Coach Mike Tomlin referred to Mewelde Moore (ankle) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Moore allegedly suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 4. But even if he's back this week, he'll have a bit role behind a now-healthy Rashard Mendenhall.
Tue, Oct 11, 2011 12:41:00 PM

Mewelde Moore (high-ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Titans.

With Moore out and Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring) highly questionable, Isaac Redman is looking at a serious workload. Even if Mendy surprisingly suits up, Redman will get all the passing-down work. Defensive end Aaron Smith (mid-foot sprain) has also been ruled out.
Thu, Oct 6, 2011 10:13:00 AM

Mewelde Moore has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

A true high-ankle sprain would sideline Moore for at least a few weeks. That opens up the majority of third-down and two-minute work for Isaac Redman, whose stock is on the rise quickly. Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring) is unlikely to be at 100 percent even if he plays against the Titans this week.
