Cornerback Tracy Porter looks to return this Sunday against the Chiefs. Tracy Porter, remember him? Porter was one of the earliest free agent signings this off-season for the Denver Broncos and he came on strong as the season began, starting four of the first five games. Intercepting a pass in the first game of the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers and running it back for a touchdown earned him Week One AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Then mysteriously, he simply was not allowed to travel with the team. He was apparently showing symptoms of a concussion nearly a week after the game against the New England Patriots. That was Week Six (October 15th) and he hasn’t been involved in a game since. In the meantime, the Broncos have seen incredible games from two Sophomore cornerbacks who weren’t even drafted last season– Chris Harris and Tony Carter. Now, Porter is cleared and ready to return to play in Week Twelve against the Kansas City Chiefs. It is important to remember that Porter was having similar symptoms back in August prior to having a seizure; so it’s not as if he was being held out for any reason other than his own health. Denver has some decisions to make as rookie Omar Bolden is also ready to return. Bolden has contributed mainly on special teams this season, but is also returning from a concussion. That’s a really stuffed secondary and as Harris and Carter have demonstrated, action-packed full of talent. Porter will be active on Sunday, it’s possible that he may not start, but likely that he will. Pushing Harris to nickle situations and Carter in on dime packages. Bolden and Carter have both contributed significantly on special teams, but with the inclusion of both Porter and Bolden on an active roster… It’s hard to tell whom the Broncos will make inactive. Keep in mind the Chiefs could be without star receiver Dwayne Bowe this week. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Ian Henson
