RENTON, Wash. — Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore will miss the start of the regular season after suffering a shoulder injury in practice.

Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that the team is still figuring out the extent of the injury. But Carroll said he does not expect Moore to be available for Week 1 against Cincinnati. Moore suffered the injury during Thursday’s practice.

Moore was expected to be in the mix among Seattle’s wide receivers after having 26 catches for 445 yards and five touchdowns last season. He’s also been an option in the return game.

Moore’s injury will impact Seattle’s depth for Saturday’s preseason game against the Chargers. The Seahawks are already without rookie DK Metcalf as he recovers from minor knee surgery.
