Report: Dolphins QB Moore suffered 'low grade' concussion

Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore was sidelined by a head injury in Sunday's 26-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that forced backup J.P. Losman to finish the game. But Moore's status beyond that is still up in the air.

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano didn't have an update on Moore following the loss. The Palm Beach Post reported late Sunday that Moore suffered a potential low-grade concussion but was bothered more by neck spasms than his head after the game, according to a source.

Moore was injured after an incomplete pass when he was hit by Eagles linebacker Brian Rolle late during the third quarter. Moore walked off the field under his own power and remained on the sideline for several plays before eventually leaving for the locker room. He appeared to be lobbying to get back on the field before walking off with a team trainer. The Dolphins eventually announced that Moore would not return.

Moore was 11 of 19 passing for 95 yards with a touchdown and an interception before leaving. Losman, who completed a 10-yard pass to Anthony Fassano for a first down on his first play, made his debut for the Dolphins. Losman finished 6 of 10 passing for 60 yards and said Moore didn't appear to be seriously hurt.

"I talked to him a little bit," Losman said. "He seemed fine to me."

The Dolphins also lost starting left tackle Jake Long to a back injury earlier in the game.
