After missing his second straight game due to lingering symptoms associated with a seizure suffered in August, Denver Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter returned to the practice field on Wednesday.
Porter missed practice twice last week and was held out of last week’s matchup with the New Orleans Saints. Porter hasn’t played since the Broncos’ 31-21 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.
Porter has been on medication to control the light-headedness and racing heart that have been causing him problems. The medication has apparently helped enough in order to get Porter cleared to return to practice. Porter was held to limited participation during the Broncos’ practice Wednesday.
According to Arnie Stapleton of the Associated Press, Porter hopes to be able to play against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday.
”It’s a matter of me getting my conditioning back, getting my legs back up under me,” Porter said. ”As far as seizure-wise, I don’t have any problem.”
Porter has compiled 21 tackles for the season and had an interception return for a touchdown in the Broncos season-opening 31-19 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Porter was the only player to be limited during Wednesday’s practice. Mike Adams (knee), Chris Kuper (forearm), Peyton Manning (right thumb) and Jacob Tamme (hip) all fully participated for the Broncos.
