Is the Atlanta Falcons' re-signing of Charles Godfrey a bad omen for William Moore?

Fact: William Moore doesn't have to chill his jello; it's already ready.

Atlanta Falcons strong safety and resident kicker of butts William Moore left in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans with a groin injury. His continued presence on the sideline, helmet on, was encouraging. It looked like he would consider returning, at least for a moment. But he never came back in the game, giving Robenson Therezie just enough defensive snaps to be heroic.

The Falcons thought it wise to tweak their roster today. That certainly says something. Whether it's an actual indication of Moore's present health, or his health going forward, remains to be seen. Godfrey is used to this by now. He's now been cut and re-signed twice. Per Vaughn McClure, he's basically just added depth.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Moore, along with wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (hamstring), won't practice Wednesday. There's a chance both Moore and Hankerson could miss multiple games, meaning the Falcons will need depth at both safety and wide receiver.

You've got to feel for Moore. Struggling through injuries is basically his modus operandi at this point. It's what he's known for, and that's obviously not a good thing.
