Lance Moore WR PIT 6 Days

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.

Moore (groin) didn't practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.

We'll track Moore's status as the week continues, but if he is unable to play Sunday against the Browns, Justin Brown would be a candidate to replace Moore as the Steelers' No. 3 wide receiver in Week 1.

Moore, who sat out the Steelers' preseason finale against the Panthers with an unspecified minor injury, is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Browns, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

We'll track Moore's practice participation in the coming days, but assuming his health, he is in line to see slot duties in the Pittsburgh offense out of the gate.

Moore (unspecified issue) was scratched for Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

With Moore sidelined, Justin Brown started in the Steelers' three-receiver formation on offense, along with Markus Wheaton and Antonio Brown. Assuming the issue that kept him out of Thursday's contest is not a major one, Moore is on track to work primarily out of the slot in the Steelers' offense.

Moore had no catches on one target in Saturday's preseason opener against the Giants.

Moore's lone target came in the red zone, which doesn't figure to be his area of expertise this season. There's been some talk that Moore needs to hold off Justin Brown for the third spot on the depth chart, but it's also possible that the former Saint will push Markus Wheaton for the No. 2 slotting. It's hard to imagine Moore actually falling to fourth on the depth chart.

ESPN Steelers reporter Scott Brown says Lance Moore "stood out as much as any player" during offseason practices.

Moore has proven to a quick study in Todd Haley's scheme, which isn't surprising for a savvy eight-year veteran. We're still skeptical he'll be effective in replacing Jerricho Cotchery. The 5'9/182 Moore won't have the same red-zone impact as the 6'1/200 Cotchery, and had separation issues in his age-30 season in New Orleans. We'd rather take a flier on likely starting "X" Markus Wheaton.
