Matt Moore was back at practice today. (So was LT Jake Long, but that's not the point of this post).
The point is with Moore back at practice and a majority of the repetitions with the first team at practice, a source said he has been cleared of his concussion-like symptoms and he will start for the Dolphins versus the Bills Sunday. Moore is obviously under that impression because he said he expects to start Sunday.
So that is what we should expect will happen.
Moore addressed the media today after practice. This is what he said:
(On how do you feel) - “I feel good. Had a couple days off, feel good.”
(On how did the testing go yesterday) - “Everything went well. I’m sure you guys can talk to the medical staff or head coaches. They’ll have more for you.”
(On how did you feel during practice today) - “It felt good, nice to get back in and get reps, get ready for Buffalo. We got a big stretch here the last three games and so we just got to be ready to go.”
(On how did you feel after the game) - “A little banged up obviously but feeling good now and that’s the most important thing and we’re moving forward.”
(On starting Sunday if available) - “Yeah, absolutely no doubt, if I’m ready to go I’m excited for the opportunity.”
(On if you were diagnosed with a concussion) - “(The) medical staff can answer that for you.”
(On who took the most reps today) - “I took most of them. Both of us got reps, but I took a lot of reps.”
(On going through the sideline procedures with concussions) - “Yeah, they did they’re standard protocol if you will. So I went through all that yeah.”
(On ever having a concussion before) - “I have. Last year, week one.”
(On that being your first concussion as far as you know) - “Yeah.”
(On keeping your helmet on during the game, did you think you’ll be able to re-enter the game) - “Yeah, just feeling out the situation. As it turned out I didn’t go back in, but it was just gathering myself afterwards.”
(On hearing Todd Bowles voice today) - “It was different obviously. I guess that’s the way the business is. Tons of respect for Coach (Tony) Sparano and he’ll do fine whatever he does, but yeah, absolutely a little different. Guys are getting use to it, but it’s been good moving forward.”
