Packers fans gave Moore a standing ovation as he was carted off the field even though he was a member of the opposing team. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network had a glass-half-full approach when discussing the injury:
This injury is particularly difficult for the Raiders and Moore because he was expected to contribute on the defensive side this year. He played in 15 games in 2013 as a rookie and racked up 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
Moore is only 24 years old and has a bright future ahead of him if he recovers quickly from this latest setback. Check back for updates as they develop.
