Raiders WLB Sio Moore (hip) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Moore will likely miss the majority of OTAs recovering from December hip surgery, but should be close to 100 percent for the start of camp. He had 90 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble in 11 games prior to going on I.R. Moore will return as a starter in new coach Jack Del Rio's scheme.
Feb 18 - 6:00 PM

Raiders placed ILB Sio Moore on injured reserve with a hip injury, ending his season.

Moore's injury isn't believed to be overly serious, but he wasn't going to be ready for the season's final two games. An 11-game starter, Moore made plays for one of the league's worst defenses, tallying 90 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. He graded out negatively in Pro Football Focus' ratings, but made improvements as the year wore on. Regardless of who's calling the shots for Oakland in 2015, Moore will be back as a starter.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (hip) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Chiefs.

Moore got in a limited practice on Thursday but missed Friday's session. Ray-Ray Armstrong will likely start with Moore sidelined. Jamaal Charles is going to run wild on Sunday.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Moore practiced on a limited basis this week, putting him on track to play. Jamar Chaney or Ray-Ray Armstrong would start if Moore is held out.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Nick Roach (concussion) is questionable for the game after missing the last four weeks. Miles Burris has been filling in at middle linebacker for Roach, but will likely shift outside with Moore down. Kaluka Maiava could start in the middle if Roach is unable to go. The Raiders have given up a league-high 400 rushing yards through the first two games of the season.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (neck) returned to practice Tuesday.

Moore was carted off the field during Friday's preseason opener. X-rays later revealed he only suffered a neck strain. He should be good for Week 1.

Raiders LB Sio Moore reportedly suffered a neck strain in Friday night's third preseason game.

It was the best possible outcome after Moore had to be carted off the field during the second quarter. X-Rays were negative, and Moore was allowed to fly home with his teammates. His status for Week 1 is uncertain.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (neck) was carted off the field during Friday night's preseason game at Green Bay.

Moore was chasing down a play when he got blocked awkwardly up high by Packers fullback John Kuhn. His neck was stabilized by the training staff and he was stretchered to the locker room. Moore, who was replaced by Miles Burris, was later diagnosed with a neck strain. His status for Week 1 is uncertain.

Sio Moore has been working as the Raiders' second-team weak-side linebacker in training camp.

Miles Burris is running with the ones at "Will," with rookie Khalil Mack at Sam 'backer and Nick Roach in the middle. Moore flashed promise during his rookie season, but isn't a natural fit on the weak side, and may be limited to a pass-rush specialist role. Moore had 4.5 sacks in 11 starts last year.

The Raiders are working Sio Moore at weak-side linebacker during OTAs.

It's worth noting incumbent WLB Kevin Burnett isn't attending, though he may lose his starting job, anyway. First-round pick Khalil Mack is ticketed for strong-side linebacker, which is Moore's old position. Moore was Reggie McKenzie's only 2013 draft pick who provided a meaningful impact last season. He was a stout run defender, excelled in pass coverage, and chipped in 4.5 sacks.

Raiders rookie SLB Sio Moore (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday.

Moore suffered a concussion in a car accident Saturday and was held out of Week 3, but has officially been cleared to practice. He's played just over 32 percent of the defensive snaps this season and will return to a pass-rushing role at strong-side linebacker.

Raiders rookie SLB Sio Moore (concussion) is inactive for Monday night's Week 3 game against the Broncos.

Moore was involved in a car accident Saturday morning and ended up with a concussion. Kaluka Maiava will get the start in his place. Moore has been impressive, but he's only played just over 32 percent of the defensive snaps. Also inactive for the Raiders are QB Matt McGloin, SS Tyvon Branch, T Menelik Watson, LG Lucas NIx, G Antoine McClain, and WR Juron Criner.

Raiders SLB Sio Moore is listed as questionable for Monday night's Week 3 game at Denver due to a concussion.

One of Oakland's few impressive young pieces, Moore was concussed during a car accident on Saturday morning. Moore has indicated on Twitter that he will play against the Broncos. Kaluka Maiava will get the nod if Moore can't go.
Mon, Sep 23, 2013 02:56:00 PM

Coach Dennis Allen said he plans to use third-round SLB Sio Moore the same way the Broncos use Von Miller.

Allen was Denver's defensive coordinator the year they drafted Miller. Moore has been lining up with his hand in the dirt on passing downs, and Allen sees that as a role he can "potentially serve." Moore possesses dangerous pass-rush skills, which showed up in the preseason opener on his sack of Tony Romo. The Raiders finished 31st in the league in sacks last season.
