David Moore nearing return for Seahawks

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah may not be the only one making his season debut for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Wide receiver David Moore appears on track to return to the lineup as well after missing the first two games of the season due to a hairline fracture in his humerus sustained during the preseason.

Moore was a full participant in practice with Seattle on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. He returned to practice last week after being sidelined for a few weeks as his injury healed.

“There’s a really good chance that David – he’s got to go day to day, here but he’s practicing to play. That’s a real boost for us.,” head coach Pete Carroll said on Wednesday.

Moore had 22 catches for 413 yards and four touchdowns over an eight-game midseason stretch for Seattle last year. However, the start and end of his season was rather quiet. But Moore has shown to be a big-play threat at times with his leaping ability and strong hands.

“He’s a vertical threat,” offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said. “We’ve obviously been able to move him around a lot more this year, he looks really good. But, just the big lay capability. We’ve always talked a little bit about just his size and speed and strength to the ball and things like that. It’ll be fun to have him back out there again.”

While Ansah hasn’t yet been given the green light to make his Seattle debut this week against the Saints, he also was a full participant in practice on Thursday. The return of both Ansah and Moore to the lineup could provide a boost for each side of the ball against the New Orleans Saints.

  1. Main stream media kept having questions about Seattle’s WRs but people who follow the team knew they had talent especially even if DK Metcalf wasn’t a stud.

    Tyler Lockett is a number one receiver. He has been an amazing outside deep threat but last week he showed he could move the chains. David Moore will eventually work his way into the 3rd receiver with Malik Turner and Jaron Brown battle for the 4th. The pre-season darling is 5th or 6th on the depth chart John Ursua who looked like a savy veteran against back ups. I am hopeful that can translate into a slot role from him as the season develops.

  2. With Dissly in the mix, they can be dynamic if they utilize the personnel in the huddle. Holmgren would pass to set up the run. It looks like that might be the best plan of attack moving forward in 2019.

  3. Although I do agree about Dissly. He’s the second coming of Zack Miller with more upside. It’s funny to compare them because Zack was viewed as a receiving threat who learned to block in Seattle whereas Will was drafted because of his exceptional blocking then turned out to be a good reciever. Add to him DK Metcalf. DK looks LEGIT. He only runs a few routes but he’s good at those routes. Sick measurables, catch radius, football IQ. The kid is under Wilson’s wing too which I love. Hopefully he can be more durable in the pros with better doctors and trainers. Dissly, DK, and Lockett is a dangerous trio. I’m definitely not saying don’t throw it 35 times with weapons like these. I’m just saying we’re built to punish teams with Carson and Penny.
