Moore to visit Houston Texans

Appalachian State running back Jalin Moore will visit the Houston Texans.

HOUSTON — Appalachian State running back Jalin Moore will visit the Houston Texans, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle.

Moore has visited several teams, according Chronicle reporter Aaron Wilson, who did not say what day Moore’s meeting would be. The Chronicle also reported that Moore has met with the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens Detroit Lions Pittsburgh Steelers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Moore went through his pro day at Appalachian State April 4. He was invited to go to the NFL Scouting Combine, but could not participate in anything except for the bench press because of the lingering effects of the ankle injury he suffered during the 2018 season at Arkansas State. Moore dislocated his ankle during that game, but while at the combine, he bench-pressed 225 pounds 27 times.

Before his injury, Moore ran for 400 yards and averaged 6.3 yards per carry in five games. In 2017, Moore gained 1,037 yards and scored 12 touchdowns. He also gained 1,450 yards and scored 10 touchdowns in his sophomore season.
