Saints Veteran CB Sterling Moore Suffers Pectoral Injury, Could Miss Week 3

Nick Underhill reports that Saints veteran CB Sterling Moore suffered a pectoral injury during Week 2 and is seeking additional opinions to determine its severity.

However, Underhill adds that it is “currently unclear” if Moore will be able to play in Week 3.

It is worth mentioning that the Saints brought in CBs Bradley Sylve, Demontre Hurst and Trovon Reed for workouts on Tuesday, so it seems they could be preparing to be without him.

Moore, 27, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Methodist back in 2011. However, he lasted just a few months in Oakland before he was waived a few weeks into the season.

Moore bounced around a bit with the Patriots, Cowboys, and Buccaneers before signing a one-year contract with the Bills back in March of last year. Unfortunately, Buffalo elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

He finished a one-year contract with the Saints and re-signed to a one-year, $900,000 contract this offseason.

In 2016, Moore appeared in 13 games for the Saints and recorded 56 tackles two interceptions and 13 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 65 cornerback out of 112 qualifying players with a solid coverage rating.
