Lance Moore WR PIT 1 Day
Moore caught one pass for 12 yards in Pittsburgh's 27-24 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Moore finally has a reception in 2014, but is still buried on the depth chart. Even with Ben Roethlisberger distributing the ball to eight different receivers, Moore offers little to fantasy owners at the moment.

Though he said after the game that he is healthy, Moore (groin) played just one offensive snap in Sunday night's 37-19 win over the Panthers, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsbrugh Tribune-Review reports.
Despite struggling in the first two games, Justin Brown surprisingly got the nod over Moore as the third receiver in three-wide formations. However, Brown may have left the door open by turning in another lackluster performance, as he caught just 2-of-4 targets for 10 yards. Even if he eventually usurps Brown, Moore will be the fourth or fifth receiving option in an offense that heavily relies on Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell.

Moore (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, ESPN's Scott Brown reports.
As expected, Moore will make his Steelers debut working as the No. 3 wide receiver. Even though Pittsburgh heavily relies on three-wide formations, Moore may have a hard time finding targets some weeks. He should represent an upgrade from Justin Brown, who struggled badly as the team's No. 3 wideout for the first two weeks of the season.

After logging a full practice Thursday, Moore (groin) said he will play Sunday against the Panthers, ESPN.com reports.
Moore is expected to make his season debut as the Steelers' No. 3 wide receiver, a role that Justin Brown struggled to fill for the first two weeks of the season. Jerricho Cotchery was surprisingly productive in said role last year, catching 46 balls for 602 yards and 10 touchdowns on 76 targets. With the Steelers typically favoring three-wide formations, Moore figures to see quite a bit of the field, though he's still an aging fourth or fifth option in an offense that wants to stay reasonable balanced.

Moore (groin) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Moore missed the Steelers' first two games due to a groin issue, but appears to be on track to make his team debut Sunday night versus the Panthers. Barring a setback, Moore could return to Pittsburgh's lineup as the team's No. 3 receiver, a position Justin Brown has occupied to date.

Moore (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Ravens, the Steelers' official site reports.

Moore (groin) didn't practice Tuesday.
After turning in a limited practice Monday, Moore was held out of the proceedings Tuesday in an attempt to aid his ailing groin. With the Steelers set to play on Thursday night this week, Moore might not have enough time to prove to the team's medical staff that he's fully healthy. If Moore is unavailable for a second straight week, look for Justin Brown and Darrius Heywward-Bey to pick up some reps in the receiving game in his stead.

Moore (groin) is considered questionable to play in Thursday's Week 2 game against the Ravens, ESPN.com reports.
Moore missed making his Steelers' debut Sunday due to a groin ailment and could sit out another contest given the short turnaround before Thursday's Week 2 game. While Moore's status will be updated in advance of kickoff, Justin Brown could be in line for increased involvement as Pittsburgh's No. 3 wideout.

Moore (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, the Steelers' official site reports.
With fellow receiver Martavis Bryant doubtful for the contest, the Steelers' Week 1 wideout depth is a little taxed, with the report indicating that Justin Brown is likely to replace Moore on Sunday when the team rolls with three-receiver sets.

Moore (groin) didn't practice Thursday, according to Pittsburgh Tribune-Review writer Mark Kaboly.
Fellow wide receiver Martavis Bryant (shoulder) also skipped practice for the second straight day, leaving the Steelers thin for their Week 1 match-up against Cleveland. If either, or both, are unable to play Sunday, Justin Brown and Darrius Heyward-Bey could see an increase in targets.
