Steelers RB Moore remains out with hamstring injury

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Mewelde Moore has been out of practice since he injured hamstring on Aug. 4. Although he is still unsure when he will be back with the team, he is certain that he will play for the Sept. 10 opener against Tennessee Titans.

“Fortunately, or unfortunately, I’ve been in a situation like this before where I had something and I wasn’t able to get as many (practice carries) throughout the preseason and I still managed to play the season,” Moore said Tuesday. “I’ve always taken pride in that (playing a full season).”

As a third-down back, Moore ran for 588 yards and five touchdowns last season, with an average of 90 yards in four starts while filling in for the injured Willie Parker. He also had a season-high 120 yards and managed to score three times against Cincinnati. No wonder coach Mike Tomlin expects him to return quickly.
