William Moore Injury: Falcons Safety Exits With Hurt Thigh

Starting Atlanta Falcons strong safety William Moore had to leave Lucas Oil Stadium's field during the first quarter against the Indianapolis Colts. He has a thigh injury and is questionable to return for the rest of Sunday's game.

Moore has 31 tackles and a pick this season, part of a 105-tackle, six-interception three-year career. He missed 14 games during his rookie season due to injury, but has been mostly healthy since then, playing all 16 games in 2010 and all seven so far this year.

In his absence, James Sanders takes over. Sanders has been handy as a utility safety, having filled in for Thomas DeCoud earlier in the year. It could be a big day for late additions to the Falcons secondary. Kelvin Hayden, who joined around the same time as Sanders did just days before the season began, picked off his former team earlier in this game.
