Matt Moore Probable With Sore Ribs

Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore (ribs) was able to practice fully this week and will start against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Moore is officially listed as "Probable".

Moore emerged from Sunday's 18-15 overtime loss to the Denver Broncos with sore ribs, an injury situation that has flown under the radar as coaches and players on the Dolphins' defense pointed fingers at one another over personnel groupings and a lack of execution during the Broncos' successful two-point conversion attempt that sent the game into overtime.

On Tuesday, Moore's backup, Sage Rosenfels, was placed on the season-ending "Reserve/Non-Football Illness" list after experiencing more symptoms of a blood infection that landed him on the Giants' injured reserve list in August. When placing Rosenfels on the non-football injury list, the Dolphins signed veteran J.P. Losman. A 2004 first-round pick of the Buffalo Bills who was among a group of veteran quarterbacks that worked out for the Dolphins on October 6 after Chad Henne was placed on injured reserve.

Since replacing Henne, Moore has completed 59.1 percent of his 93 pass attempts for 568 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions for a passer rating of 67.0.
