New York Giants DE Damontre Moore inactive week after late hit

Sunday October 25th, 2015

New York Giants defensive end Damontre Moore is inactive one week after a late hit that resulted in a $20,000 fine.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said earlier in the week he lost trust in Moore after his hit on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford, which was flagged for roughing the passer. The hit came in the first quarter, and aided an Eagles drive resulting in a touchdown.

Moore has 13 total tackles, including three sacks in six games so far this season. A third-round pick in 2013, Moore was also fined for a hit on Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger last season.

The 3–3 Giants will face their division rival the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
