The ICARUS detector will search for neutrino oscillations involving eV-scale sterile neutrinos using the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. These oscillations may be observed as muon-neutrino ($\nu_\mu$) disappearance, which will require a high purity sample of $\nu_\mu$ events in the detector with sufficient statistics to maintain sensitivity to $\nu_\mu$ disappearance. Additionally, the energy of neutrino events must be reconstructed in order to perform fits of neutrino oscillations. A preliminary study of selection cuts and reconstructed neutrino energy, using simulated data, will be shown to demonstrate the impact of these factors on the sensitivity of ICARUS to $\nu_\mu$ disappearance.
