Lance Moore WR DET 4 months ago

Moore completed the 2015 season with 29 catches off of 43 targets for 337 yards and four touchdowns.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Moore ended 2015 ranked fifth on the team in most receiving categories, including catches, targets and yards. His seven receptions of at least 20 yards tied him with Golden Tate and Theo Riddick for second on the team. Moore had a nice little run from Weeks 5 through 10, during which he caught four touchdowns in five games. In his five games following, he managed just four catches total as the second-year receiver TJ Jones began making his presence felt. Moore was brought in this offseason due to his familiarity with former offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's scheme. With Lombardi now out of town, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Moore join him as the Lions look toward the future at receiver.

Moore (ankle) is listed as active Monday in New Orleans, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After missing two games due to an ankle injury, Moore practiced in full all week, blazing a trail for his return to the lineup. He's only been targeted more than three times in four of 11 outings this season, but in his first game at the Superdome since leaving New Orleans after the 2013 season, he'll aim to join the many wideouts that have reached the end zone against the Saints this season (21 times in all).

Moore (ankle) is probable for Monday's game against the Saints.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Moore, who missed the last two games due to an ankle injury, was able to fully practice all week, so there wasn't much concern over his availability for Monday's game. He's seen his number fall off the cliff since a five catch, 106 yard explosion in Week 6, but he could see an uptick in usage against a Saints secondary that has allowed 13.9 YPC and 21 touchdowns to wide receivers this season.

Moore (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Moore appears on pace to return from a two-game absence, which was spurred by an ankle injury. The Lions could use his presence in the slot Sunday versus a Saints defense that has yielded 13.9 YPC and 21 touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in the current campaign.

Moore (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday at St. Louis, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Moore (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in St. Louis.

Competitive Edge Analysis

All eight players on the Detroit injury report are listed as questionable, and while the other guys all seem likely to play, Moore is in real danger of missing a second straight game. He was limited at practice all week, and another absence would leave T.J. Jones as the No. 3 wide receiver.

Moore (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Lions' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After sustaining an ankle injury on Thanksgiving, Moore was sidelined in the Lions' last tilt Thursday against the Packers. Fitting in some reps this Wednesday is a step in the right direction, but even when healthy, he's no better than the fifth receiving option considered by Matthew Stafford.

Moore (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Despite sitting out practice Monday, Moore expressed optimism with his ankle injury, but in the end, he wasn't afforded enough time to recover. In his stead, T.J. Jones will fill in as the No. 3 wide receiver, though Corey Fuller should also experience an uptick in snaps.

Moore (ankle) didn't practice Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. "Ankle is feeling better," he said. "Every day has been feeling better. To go from where I came from after the game to today is extremely encouraging and I'm just trying to do whatever I can to get back as soon as I can."

Competitive Edge Analysis

Moore exited the Lions' Thanksgiving day tilt due to an ankle injury and has yet to step foot on the field. However, his comments indicate that the ankle is recovering quickly, giving him a chance to play Thursday against the Packers. If he's unable to suit up, T.J. Jones will serve as the No. 3 wide receiver.

Moore caught a 14-yard pass on his lone target in Thursday's win over the Eagles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

From Weeks 5 to 10, Moore found the end zone four times in five games. In the two games since, he has just two catches off of three targets. The Lions appear to be more of a two-receiver team under new offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, heavily relient on the backs and tight ends. During Thursday's game, Moore's 23 total snaps trailed that of fullback Michael Burton, according to Pro Football Focus. He should remain out of lineups until further notice.
