|6-3, 200||Born: 11-5-1980||College: Illinois||Drafted: ---|
2007 Week 4 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Helping to pick up the slack of the injured Marvin Harrison, Aaron Moorehead was able to register one catch for five yards. With the Colts running the ball in the second half, Moorehead was used mostly as a perimeter blocker.
2007 Week 7 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moorehead was targeted once in the first series of the game, and Manning never threw to him again.
2007 Week 8 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Moorehead saw just one pass thrown his way. He caught it for an eight yard gain on a third and seven play at the Carolina 17 yard line. The first down eventually led to the Colts final touchdown.
2007 Week 9 vs NE (6 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Moorehead received some extra playing time with Harrison out due to injury and WR Anthony Gonzalez leaving the game early with an injury of his own. Moorehead received five targets, catching two passes for 13 yards.
2007 Week 10 vs SD (10 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Aaron Moorehead started this game for an injured Marvin Harrison, and caught four passes for 39 yards on ten Peyton Manning targets. His biggest play of the game came on a 4th and two where Manning found him to the right side, and he had to go up for a jumping catch and a first down on a 12 yard gain. He had a fairly disappointing effort otherwise, especially considering he's been in the Colts system for five years, and was probably outplayed by the practice squad player Craphonso Thorpe. Late in the fourth quarter with the Colts driving, Manning found him streaking down the right sideline near the end zone, but Moorehead allowed the ball to slip through his fingers in what would have been a game changing play.
2007 Week 11 vs KC (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moorehead started the game, but was forced to leave in the third quarter with a back injury resulting from an attempted catch of a pass that was to high.
2006 Week 1 vs NYG (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moorehead received one target in the game, which was incomplete. He looked to have run a different route than Peyton Manning had expected.
2006 Week 2 vs HOU (3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Moorehead played most of the fourth quarter once the game was no longer in doubt. He is different than Harrison as he's a tall, rangy WR with some speed but not as sneaky fast as Harrison.
2006 Week 11 vs DAL (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moorehead had two passes thrown to him late in the first half but was unable to catch either.

2006 Week 17 vs MIA (4 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Moorehead played that third receiver role for the Colts, catching two balls for 41 yards on four targets. He had a 36 yard reception that led to the Manning touchdown run.
2006 Week 18 vs KC (3 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Moorehead had an eight yard gain on his first target. He was targeted again on the Colts' fifth drive as Manning looked for him in the end zone, but the ball was thrown behind Moorehead and Jarrad Page jumped in for an interception. Moorehead caught his only target of the second half for a ten yard gain and a first down.
2006 Week 19 vs BAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moorehead was only targeted once in the game. It came at the end of the first half, when Manning threw deep. The ball was thrown close to the sidelines and Moorehead juggled the ball before catching it out of bounds. He was open on the play and a more accurate pass would have resulted in a 51 yard touchdown.

Moorehead was targeted once in the first half but dropped the ball.
2005 Week 16 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
