Colts Waive-Injured FB Dan Moore

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Colts have waived-injured fullback Dan Moore, who has a shoulder injury.

According to the Indianapolis Star's Mike Chappell, the Colts have waived-injured fullback Dan Moore.

Moore was signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Montana, where he had a very successful college career running the football.  He played running back and special teams in college, is a hard worker, and had a very impressive showing at the scouting combine as well.  He is a talented player who can play both fullback and running back, which would be valuable for any team.  He was injured early in camp with a shoulder injury, however, and has been out ever since.

This move was one that most of us knew was coming.  Moore was in a pretty big sling from early on in camp when he injured his shoulder, and it didn't appear to be getting better that quickly either.  Honestly, this could end up being a good thing for Moore.  It was probably either IR or practice squad for him, and while at least he could have practiced while on the practice squad, he still gets to be around the team very closely and continue to be involved at least to some degree.  I don't think this is that bad of a thing for Moore, who is a talented player.

It also leaves the Colts with an open roster spot.  It likely will be a tight end, as Chuck Pagano even said that they don't want Justice Cunningham and Dominique Jones to have to play 70 snaps each; Dwayne Allen is out; and Coby Fleener is coming back from a concussion.  They need another guy at the position, and they even had one in for a workout a few days ago, one who sounds like might really be signed pretty soon:

We'll keep you posted on the corresponding roster move for the Colts.  Expect it to happen soon, and it sounds like it will be a tight end, likely Joe Sawyer.  For right now, though, we'll wait and see whether some team puts in a waiver claim for Dan Moore or whether he will revert to the Colts' IR.
