For the first time since October, both cornerback Tracy Porter and offensive guard Chris Kuper could be out on the field on Sunday.
When the Broncos take on the Chiefs this weekend, Porter (illness) and Kuper (ankle) should be able to play.
Both players fully participated in practice throughout week and Porter was cleared to play on Thursday.
“Every prayer you guys sent up for me has been answered everyday. I thank you [all] for that. And I will make sure I show you guys my thank you’s,” Porter tweeted earlier in the week.
If Kuper is able to go, he will reclaim his starting right guard position from Manny Ramirez, who has filled in for seven games this season. Kuper’s return will be welcomed by quarterback Peyton Manning, as Ramirez has allowed a team-high seven sacks this season.
If Porter is able to play, it will likely be in a rotational role, as Chris Harris and Tony Carter have stepped up during his absence. It will be interesting to see if Porter, now healthy, can reclaim his starting position this season. We’ll be watching closely—stay tuned.
