It only took two plays from scrimmage in New Orleans before the home crowd went silent.

Saints cornerback Tracy Porter was carted off the field with an apparent neck/shoulder injury. He tackled wide receiver Mike Williams by leading with his helmet.  Porter had movement in his arms before leaving.

Williams was also shaken up on the play, but was able to walk off under his own power. We’ll let you know more about Porter’s injury when we hear more.

UPDATE: Porter was taken to a local hospital, but FOX reported that he was “fine” neurologically. He won’t return to the game. Williams re-entered the game on the next drive.
