Matt Moore Injury Update: Dolphins QB Misses Practice After Head Injury

During last weekend's game against the Eagles, Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore was forced to leave the game early after suffering a hard hit. The initial report at the time was that it was a head and neck injury, and that he'd be evaluated to determine if he'd suffered a concussion.

When the Dolphins started up practices for the week on Wednesday, Moore wasn't on the field. The Dolphins are denying that Moore suffered a concussion, although he seems doubtful for this Sunday's game against the Bills:

Coach Todd Bowles: "No, he has a head and neck injury He's taking tests right now. When he gets back and the training room gets back to me, we'll evaluate that later and I can better tell you at that time."

Moore was on the sidelines for Wednesday's practice, and there is no exact timetable for his return. If he is not ready for this weekend, that backup J.P. Losman is expected to get the start at quarterback. Losman started the season third on the Dolphins' depth chart, but due to injuries to Chadd Henne and now Moore, he could see himself getting some serious playing time.
