Moore will play Sunday

Asked if recently signed wide receiver Herman Moore would start, Head Coach Jim Fassel said, "I doubt it. I want him to play and I want to be able to use him."

Jim Fassel said he expects Herman Moore to play this week in Houston. Moore, who has 670 career receptions, was signed last week but was inactive against the Redskins.

"He'll be ready much more this week," Fassel said. "He'll have a learning curve and I think we can plug him in a little more this week."

Asked if Moore would start, Fassel said, "I doubt it. I want him to play and I want to be able to use him. We had more than 80 snaps yesterday. You have to be gun-powder ready and in shape if you think you are going to play that many snaps." Moore flew home to Michigan to get some clothes. He packed light for last week's tryout.
