Denarius Moore injures hamstring at Raiders minicamp

There’s no contact at minicamps, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any injuries.

The Raiders learned that lesson on Tuesday when starting receiver Denarius Moore went down with an injured hamstring during minicamp drills. According to Paul Gutierrez of CSNBayArea.com, Moore was able to leave the field under his own power but it still sounds like he’s going to be finished with formal practice until training camp gets underway.

“He’s going to be fine,” said coach Dennis Allen. “We’ll evaluate it. Usually those things take a couple of weeks or so (to heal) so we’ll see where he’s at.”

Moore flashed some big-play ability as a rookie after the Raiders made him a fifth-round pick in 2011. He caught 33 passes for 618 yards — an impressive 18.7 yards per catch — in 13 games last season. He missed three games with a foot injury and played through the shuffling of quarterbacks in Oakland which suggests a healthier, more stable season will lead to even better results for Moore.

As such, the Raiders would be wise to give Moore as much time as he needs to feel 100 percent before putting him back on the field.

    1 of the Raider WRs will go down in pre-season,

    and open the door for Terrell Owens,

    Owens cant play for any other team or QB then Carson Palmer and the Raiders,

    only Palmer can keep him cool and also get production outta him,

    with Owens and a few more pieces Raiders are a contender,

    without Owens or a Plaxico, or a TRUE #1 WR , which they havent had for a while now,

    they just are another maybe playoff team,

    you make the call Reggie.

    Denarius Moore can ball!!!

    If anyone knew jack about the NFL or studied details they’d realize why Thomas Dimitroff caused the team to take a step back. One answer is Denarius Moore???

    Two first rounders and more for Julio Jones????

    We need all of our young gunners to make a run this year

    Moore is a good young receiver – he killed the Chargers in the game in San Diego last year – but he was inconsistent as a rookie. He did tend to disappear in games. Looks like he might lack commitment to conditioning too.

    Wide receivers and cornerbacks are often inconsistent as rookies. As a fifth round pick, Moore exceeded all expectations. As to commitment to conditioning, that’s just an ignorant troll statement.

    You do realize that T.O. and Plax are no where near being a number 1 receiver, the Raiders WR core is overloaded with young talent, and all of those WRs on the roster are better at this point than either T.O. or Plax. The last thing they need to do is add an old distraction.

    key for the raiders is staying healthy this year…with that said I would rather that he gets hurt now, than in the season

    The RAIDERS have young, fast receivers thanks to Al Davis (RIP). Ford, Moore and DHB (all Davis picks) will be the core for several years. Also, with 2012 draft pick Criner and UDFA Streater flashing in OTAs, the RAIDERS look to be solid at WR.
