Draft Scout News
11/26/15 - DE Damontre Moore (hamstring) took his full practice reps and should be good to go for Sunday.
11/23/15 - DE Damontre Moore (hamstring) did not participate with the team during its Monday practice. Moore was spotted outside running sprints on the grass field under the watchful eye of a trainer, which would seem to indicate that his isn't a serious strain.
10/26/15 - DE Damontre Moore, who was benched by Tom Coughlin this week after the coach publicly questioned whether he could trust the reckless defender to play a fundamentally smart game, isn't necessarily guaranteed a spot back on the active list this week despite the hamstring injury rookie Odighizuwa is dealing with.
"Damontre Moore is a skilled athlete who we'll again look at the plan and see exactly where we stand," Coughlin said. "If we can include him, then we will."
10/20/15 - DE Damontre Moore currently leads the Giants in sacks with 3.0 and has shown himself to be the most effective of the team's pass rushers thus far this season.
However, it doesn't sound as though the 23-year-old Moore is headed for a larger role in the Giants' defense anytime soon, not after the blatant indiscretions Moore committed Monday night that hurt his team.
To recap, Moore, who posted the team's lone sack and who managed two hits on the quarterback, also committed a stupid penalty in which he body-slammed Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford to the ground well after the quarterback released the ball.
Not only did Moore cost his team 15 yards, the penalty also came on a third-down play that the Giants had stopped cold. Instead, the Eagles' drive continued all the way to the end zone, tying the score at 7-7 in what was the first of 27 unanswered points by the Eagles.
If all that wasn't bad enough, the former Texas A&M defender, whom head coach Tom Coughlin said has an abundance of energy, didn't exactly win brownie points when he would jump up and go into a celebratory dance after making a play despite his team being behind.
"There's no excuse," Moore said after the game. "I have to get my football IQ awareness up, and get a better understanding for the rules so I can eliminate these penalties."
That Moore, a three-year veteran, admitted to having some cloudiness regarding the rules of the game is a damning testament to his preparation, which is why it was not surprising that head coach Tom Coughlin admitted his trust in the team's 2013 third-round draft pick has been significantly dented.
"I can't really honestly say that," Coughlin said when asked if he could still trust Moore to be on the field moving forward and to not commit stupid penalties.
"He's obviously of high energy and he does give outstanding effort; there's no question about it, but with regard to that, there's absolutely no excuse for anyone for the unnecessary roughne
10/19/15 - DL Damonte Moore made one of the biggest mistakes of the game when he was called for roughing the passer in the first quarter with the Giants leading 7-0. That came on third down and kept alive a drive that ended up in a Philadelphia touchdown. Giants coach Tom Coughlin called it "a very bad penalty." Moore took complete blame for the boneheaded play. "It was just me having a poor football IQ and not being aware of the rules," he said.
