Found December 28, 2012 on BroncoTalk:
(Photo: Ron Chenoy, US Presswire) It has been a tough season for Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter. The 26-year-old defensive back signed a one-year, $4 million deal with Denver in March, entering the season as Denver’s No. 2 cornerback across from Champ Bailey. After four up-and-down games to start the season, Porter was ruled out of Denver’s Week 6 game against San Diego due to seizure-like symptoms. In Porter’s absence, second-year cornerback Chris Harris won the starting job, and kept it long after Porter had been cleared to play again.  Last week, the Broncos finally dressed Porter for a game—for the first time in nine weeks—and the cornerback saw action on the first defensive series. On the third play of the game, Porter collided with Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon and collapsed to the ground, regaining his poise and trotting to the sideline a few moments later.  Putting an explanation point to a rough luck story that has lasted all season for Porter, the cornerback was diagnosed with a concussion and did not return to the game. When the Broncos (12-3) take on the Chiefs (2-13) this week, Porter will miss his tenth game of the season while recovering from the concussion, after not participating in practice all week.  If all goes well, Porter could be back in time for the Divisional Round of the Playoffs in January. Heal up quickly, Tracy.  It’s sad to see a player have such a tough season, but John Elway and the Broncos look pretty smart now for only signing Porter to a one-year deal.
