NFL roundup: Rahim Moore placed on IR, Mike Pouncey may need gallbladder surgery

The Denver Broncos will be without Rahim Moore for the rest of the regular season Tuesday after the safety underwent emergency surgery. Denver placed Moore on injured reserve with the designation to return, meaning he could potentially return in the playoffs.

Jihad Ward Youth Jersey Moore had surgery after being diagnosed with lateral compartment syndrome. Compartment syndrome happens when connective tissue surrounding a muscle begins to swell and restrict blood flow to the muscle. In some cases it can cause nerve and muscle damage. New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks had surgery for compartment syndrome in 2010 and went on to miss two games. Moore’s recovery will apparently take longer. He will miss the next eight weeks, putting him on track for a return in the AFC Championship game if the Broncos advance.

Plain and simple, the Lions let this game get away. After dominating Pittsburgh in the second quarter, the Lions couldn’t do much of anything on offense, defense or special teams in the second half. Yes, the fake field goal was an awful decision in hindsight, but that’s far from the most concerning thing. The fact that the offense couldn’t score any points in the second half and the defense couldn’t stop anything through the air is way more troubling, and that’s why the Lions lost this game.

Next week really is a must-win situation with the 2-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming to town. The Green Bay Packers will come to Ford Field only four days later, and the Lions can’t afford to let another game they should win turn out to be a loss.

The Lions will travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers in Week 11, while the Steelers will be on the road against the Browns.
