Found August 17, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Tracy Porter's Crescent City reunion did not go to plan Friday night. Porter -- the Raiders' starting right cornerback and Super Bowl pick-six hero for the Saints -- exited Oakland's 28-20 preseason loss to New Orleans with a groin injury. Porter was injured midway through the second quarter while attempting to tackle wide receiver Kenny Stills along the Saints' sideline. Porter appeared to be in considerable discomfort and was helped to the Raiders' locker room by a trainer. The team quickly announced that Porter would not return.

Raiders vs Saints: conclusions and predictions
