With rookie D.K. Metcalf already on the mend due to a knee injury, the Seattle Seahawks receiving corps took another hit Thursday when David Moore suffered a shoulder injury in practice.
On Friday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Moore would be out for a while and is not expected to return by the start of the regular season.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, per a source, reported that Moore is getting a second opinion on the injury, which is not expected to require surgery.
Carroll added he is hopeful pass rusher Ziggy Ansah (shoulder/groin) will begin practicing for the first time with the team in the upcoming week.
As for Metcalf, Carroll said he's on track for "a great recovery."
Carroll also said guard Mike Iupati is expected to return in time for the opener.
