After missing the Pittsburgh Steelers first two games with a groin injury, veteran wide receiver Lance Moore said Monday he was able to take part in practice earlier in the day and that he hopes to make his regular season debut Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers.

With Moore not available for the Steelers first two games, second-year wide receiver Justin Brown has been playing in his place. The Steelers have used quite a bit of three wide receiver personnel groupings thus far and that has resulted in Brown playing 112 of the 132 total offensive snaps.
Moore, who spent the last nine seasons with the New Orleans Saints, signed a two-year contract with the Steelers during the offseason. He caught 37 passes for 457 yards and two touchdowns in 2013.
