Steelers LT Dan Moore Jr. Leaves Game vs. Seahawks with Hip Injury

Published

PITTSBURGH — Steelers left tackle Dan Moore Jr. left the team’s game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night with a hip injury.

Moore left the game in the fourth quarter after a running play where he was at the bottom of the pile. He was examined quickly in the medical tent on the Pittsburgh sideline. The Steelers announced that Moore is questionable to return.

Moore was replaced at tackle by Joe Haeg.

A fourth-round pick out of Texas A&M in the 2021 NFL Draft, Moore has started at left tackle every game for the Steelers this season after being elevated to the starting lineup before the opener after Zach Banner suffered a setback to his knee recovery. 

Chukwuma Okorafor was moved from left tackle to right tackle to let Moore play his more natural spot. Okorafor played right tackle in 2020 for the Steelers.
