  Colts | Mewelde Moore to see some reps    Wed Dec 12, 08:19 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Mewelde Moore is expected to receive some reps as the third-down back.

Footballguys view: With Donald Brown on Injured Reserve we'll see Moore get worked in as a pass catching back. He knows Bruce Arians system from their days together at Pittsburgh and is a trusted veteran. We don't believe Moore will have much fantasy value.

  Colts | Donald Brown lands on IR    Tue Dec 11, 04:48 PM

The Indianapolis Colts placed RB Donald Brown (ankle) and FB Robert Hughes (knee) on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, Dec. 11, and re-signed RBs Deji Karim and Mewelde Moore to the active roster in corresponding moves. Also, the team signed free-agent RB Davin Meggett (Texans) to the practice squad and released RB Alvester Alexander from the practice squad. OG Justin Anderson (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list.

Footballguys view: Without Brown in the lineup we'll see the team continue to feature rookie Vick Ballard as the lead back. Two of the next three weeks the Colts face the tough Texans rush defense. That makes Ballard more of a low end RB2 or flex play in week 15 & 17. However, in week 16 (fantasy championship) the Colts face a weak Chiefs defense. Ballard could help you win your title if you can make it through this week.

  Bengals | Work out veteran RBs    Tue Dec 4, 10:10 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals worked out veteran free-agent RBs Rock Cartwright (49ers) and Mewelde Moore (Colts) Tuesday, Dec. 4, but it appears the team is more likely to make a practice squad move instead.

  Colts | Vick Ballard gaining coaching staff's confidence    Tue Nov 6, 10:20 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard has emerged as a reliable receiver out of the backfield, and interim head coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday, Nov. 6, that played a part in the release of veteran RB Mewelde Moore.

Footballguys view: Ballard could be a nice RB2 for your fantasy team this week if he starts against the Jaguars on Thursday night.

The Indianapolis Colts have declared QB Chandler Harnish, OL Joe Reitz, CB Justin King, RB Mewelde Moore, LB Pat Angerer, OG Seth Olsen, CB Vontae Davis inactive for Week 5.

Footballguys view: Dwight Freeney is back, which puts a little more fight in whatever fighting chance the Colts have to upset the Packers today.

  Colts | Several expected to play    Fri Oct 5, 07:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts LB Dwight Freeney (ankle), C Samson Satele (knee) and RB Mewelde Moore (ankle), who are all listed as questionable for Week 5, are all expected to play this week. Freeney may not play the full game, though, and he'll be used as a situational rusher.

Footballguys view: Freeney's presence is huge for the Colts defense. If they have any shot of beating the Packers they need to pressure QB Aaron Rodgers.

  Colts | Will have competition at RB     Thu Jul 26, 10:53 AM

Indianapolis Colts RBs Delone Carter and Vick Ballard will push RB Donald Brown for snaps during training camp. RB Mewelde Moore is also a candidate to be a third-down option.

Footballguys view: Donald Brown has done little to earn incumbent status or distinguish himself from this unimpressive group. None of the above might be the best answer to which Colts back to draft this year.

  Colts | Mewelde Moore signs    Tue Jun 19, 03:47 PM

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent RB Mewelde Moore (Steelers) to an undisclosed deal Tuesday, June 19, and released QB David Legree in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Moore is an interesting addition by the Colts here. Donald Brown and Delone Carter are competing for the starting RB position, but Moore could serve as a valuable change of pace back. He's not the same player he used to be, but is more than capable as a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

  Steelers | Three FAs could return    Mon Mar 26, 02:09 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers are interested in re-signing QBs Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch as well as RB Mewelde Moore this offseason.

Footballguys view: With Dennis Dixon moving on we think both Batch and Leftwich will return. Moore could help fill the void left by starting RB Rashard Mendenhall. A knee injury suffered at the end of last year may force Mendenhall to begin the 2012 season on the PUP list.

  Steelers | Mewelde Moore out indefinitely    Tue Dec 20, 03:44 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Mewelde Moore (knee) is out indefinitely after injuring his knee in Week 15.
