The Oakland Raiders third-year Linebacker Sio Moore will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list. The Raiders confirmed the news on www.Raiders.com as well as the NFL’s Adam Caplan with this tweet.
Moore had surgery on his hip late last season and went on the injured reserve list Dec. 16. Moore’s offseason program has included very little on-field time as he rehabbed the injury.
The third-round draft pick out of UConn, has played in 26 games with 140 tackles in two season in Oakland. Ray-Ray Armstrong will likely fill the void left by Moore with the first team when camp begins. Ex-Seahawks LB and Superbowl MVP Malcolm Smith is also an option at the position.
Napa Valley, Ca.– Moore reported to camp at the Napa Valley Marriott with the rookies, quarterbacks and other players rehabbing due to injury on Sunday. With the first practice scheduled for Friday the Veterans will report on Thursday.
The Raiders can activate Moore any time they feel he is ready. Until then, he will not count toward the 90 players on the camp roster.
