The Carolina Panthers have activated wide receiver D.J. Moore from the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list and he is at practice today, per Bill Voth.

Moore is one of four players who were fined by the team for breaking the league’s COVID-19 protocols during the bye week. Moore, Curtis Samuel, Shaq Thompson and Derrick Brown were each fined $10,000 for gathering outside of the team facility.

It’s been a strong third season for Moore. In 12 games, he’s posted 50 catches, 924 yards and four touchdowns. His catch rate (56.2%) is a little lower this year, but that’s partially a product of Moore running deeper routes – he’s averaging 18.5 yards per catch this season, up from 13.5 in 2019. The rapport between Moore and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has also been a bit off. As the season has gone on, it’s become clear that’s more on the QB than Moore, though.

Defensive tackle Zach Kerr is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
