Tracy Porter Hospitalized after neck injury
 
1 Attachment(s)
Porter was hurt breaking up a pass on the second play from scrimmage of New Orleans' game against Tampa Bay on Sunday. Porter was communicating with teammates and gave a thumbs-up as he was carted from the field.

Porter lay face down and motionless for several seconds after making a hard, low hit on receiver Mike Williams, who appeared to hurt his left leg but later returned to the game.

Soon after the collision, Porter was moving both legs briefly before trainers held him still, carefully turned him on his back, removed his face mask and strapped him to a stretcher

I heard them say during the game that there was no neurological damage.

I hope he is ok. Anyone know any farther news?

I hope he is o.k. also.

Hope he's ok too...

Payton said everything was ok.

Seems to be precautionary, if there is no nerve damage he'll probably be back out there after a good hot bath and a heated back/neck massage.

However Porter is known to be a slow healer and might try and stay out as long as he possibly can.

Robinson got hurt too, which makes us pretty thin at CB. Again.

Saints CB Tracy Porter is back with the team after leaving Sunday's win over the Bucs on a stretcher.

He has full use of his arms and legs after checking out neurologically, and is experiencing soreness in his chest and neck. Porter's status for Week 10 is uncertain, but it's great news that the scary injury isn't more severe.
