Porter has an illness, the Broncos announced, and he didn’t make the team flight to San Diego for Monday’s game. He had practiced all week.
Chris Harris will move from nickelback to starting RCB opposite Champ Bailey, and Tony Carter is expected to replace Harris as the nickelback. When the Broncos go to a six-DB package, they’ll use rookie CB Omar Bolden or one of their backup safeties—Jim Leonhard or David Bruton—depending on the situation.
I've maintained Chris Harris has the ability to start in the NFL. Tomorrow night, he'll get his first chance to prove it. The good news for the Broncos? The Chargers do not have anyone on their roster named Wes Welker.
