Denver Broncos CB Tracy Porter hasn’t played in a month since he started dealing with problems that have surfaced from a seizure he had back in the summer.
You would think that this would be a problem for any team and that teams would be looking forward to playing the Broncos without their heavily-pursued starting CB on the field, but that hasn’t been the case because of two other undrafted players that have really stepped up in a big way. CBs Chris Harris and Tony Carter have both been on the field a lot while Porter has been sidelined and they have both played exceptionally well.
Combined, Harris and 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.com.
To have this kind of play on the opposite side of the field from an 11-time Pro Bowler, Champ Bailey, is something that every NFL team would love to have and every opposing QB would dread to throw against.
I’m not saying that the Broncos aren’t ready for Porter to be back–he obviously has tremendous talent and can be used on the field. I will just say that the Broncos are thankful their two undrafted corners have both stepped up during Porter’s absence and Porter can relax, take his time and make sure he is completely ready before he comes back.
This is a great problem to have.
