Just a month ago, Tracy Porter in street clothes on the Denver sideline was a welcome sight for any opposing quarterback.
Now teams might actually prefer to see him back on the football field.
Porter, who leads the league with three game-sealing interceptions since 2009, hasn't played in a month while dealing with problems related to a seizure he had over the summer.
He hasn't been missed on the field by the Broncos (5-3), however, because two cornerbacks sporting big chips on their shoulders after going undrafted out of college are playing so well in his absence.
Combined, Chris Harris and Tony Carter have allowed just 23 completions in 59 attempts, and Carter is the toughest cornerback in the NFL to complete a pass against, according to STATS LLC.
