All we have to do is wave the magic wand and wish that he were not injured.

Porter has played enough games to be considered a veteran CB now. Let him sit until the final game of the season, let him get some reps then, and give him another week to rest in the bye. He'll be ready to play in the playoffs.

He just goes on inactive list and Torrence goes active for 4 to 6 weeks.

Re: Payton says Porter has a sprained MCL...thank you football gods

A lot of other injuries in the NFL yesterday, including Panthers OT Gross out for the season. No need to do anything rash - we have 9 wins. Just mix in Jenkins and Torrence, they need more game experience. Jenkins has been okay he just needs to watch the illegal contact.

Maybe sign another CB for depth purposes who has some upside. I'm not an advocate of signing McKenzie unless he is healthy and in good enough shape to play like the old M.M.

Saints still have 2 kickers...

Do the injuries in the secondary make one of them expendable?

MM would be my next choice too but we have no room on the roster right?

as far as I understand it had it been and ACL he would have been out for the year so we could make the move but now that it's not we can't pick up anyone right?

or am I wrong about this?
