Denver Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter was a full participant in Thursday’s practice – his first since full practice since Oct. 14 – but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s back to action. Head coach John Fox says the team is taking things slow with Porter.
Even so, Porter admits his starting job is likely no longer his, which has the Denver Post’s Mark Kiszla wondering: Can Tracy Porter escape Broncos’ doghouse?
Without a trace of anger, Porter told me the team’s dissatisfaction with his performance dates to a home loss against Houston when Texans quarterback Matt Schaub passed for 284 yards and threw for two touchdowns against Porter’s side of the field.
Hey, I’m not upset (even though No. 22 is a fellow Indiana Hoosier); Chris Harris and Tony Carter have played brilliantly in Porter’s absence. Backups outplaying starters is a good problem to have. Sure beats the usual talent drop off.
Among the Broncos with fond Cincinnati memories, look no further than wide receiver Brandon Stokley. Remember that crazy Week 1 finish in 2009? (Wow, that seems so long ago now.)
