BBAO: Bears likely won't have D.J. Moore

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Chicago Bears nickelback D.J. Moore got an early exit from last Sunday's victory over the Detroit Lions. This week, he might not play at all.

Moore suffered an ankle injury in Wednesday's practice that, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, "raises serious concerns about his availability" for this Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Moore didn't practice Thursday and isn't expected to be on the field Friday, either.

Moore is not technicaly a starter, but he plays a lot. He has three interceptions and is tied for fifth on the team with 44 tackles. Special-teams ace Corey Graham, a long-ago starter at cornerback, is expected to fill in at nickel for him against the Chargers.
