Tough news for the Seattle Seahawks came Friday, as wide receiver David Moore will miss the start of the regular season with a shoulder injury.
Head Coach Pete Carroll confirmed the news during his Friday press conference, saying Moore suffered the injury in Thursday’s practice, and will be “out for a bit.” The team is already practicing and playing preseason games without first-round selection DK Metcalf who continues to miss time recovering from what Carroll described as “minimal” knee surgery last week.
News from Pete Carroll’s presser: WR David Moore suffered what sounds like a serious shoulder injury in practice yesterday. Carroll said he’ll be out for a while and later said he’s not expected to be back by Week 1. WR corps taking some hits with Moore and DK Metcalf hurt.

Moore was a seventh-round pick of the Seahawks in the 2017 NFL Draft, coming out of Division-II East Central University (Okla.). He played in just one game his rookie year but broke out on the scene last season with 26 catches for 445 yards and five touchdowns. Moore was expected to emerge even further as a viable pass-catching threat this season for a Seattle team looking for reliable options in the wake of Doug Baldwin’s retirement.
The Seahawks wide receiving group, given current health, includes just Tyler Lockett and Jaron Brown as reliable returning starters from last season.
