Broncos' Tracy Porter missing time after summer seizure; hopeful vs. Saints
Tracy Porter has been sidelined in recent days because of precautionary measures the team’s medical staff is taking after the Broncos’ cornerback suffered a seizure in August.
Last Sunday, before the Broncos were to leave for San Diego for a game against the Chargers, Porter was experiencing light-headedness and his heart was racing — symptoms that occurred before he had a seizure in August. “I had never had one before, 26 years I’ve been living,” Porter said Thursday…
...Porter returned to practice this week. He missed the workout Thursday because of a doctor’s appointment where he hoped to get cleared to play Sunday night against the New Orleans Saints, his former team.
As of Thursday afternoon, Porter still was hoping to get cleared by a doctor.
Good move by the Broncos on this one--both in holding Porter out and getting in front of this story. There had been too much speculation in the last few days as to what was wrong with Porter.
When it comes to the health of players you can never be too cautious.
