Porter (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. Porter was able to log limited practices on Thursday and Friday to put himself on course to play Sunday. The veteran continues to work as a starting corner for the Bears, but has yet to generate any interceptions or produce more than four tackles in any of his six games this season.
Bears cornerback Tracy Porter entered the starting lineup in Sunday's win over the Raiders, collecting two tackles and knocking down one pass while seeing 58 snaps. After missing the first two weeks of the season with a hamstring injury and seeing limited action in the Week 3 blowout loss to the Seahawks, Porter surprisingly displaced Alan Ball from the starting lineup. He generally fared well in holding upstart rookie Amari Cooper in check, as the No. 4 overall pick reeled in only four of nine targets for 49 yards and a touchdown, with nickel back Sherrick McManis bearing more responsibility on the score than Porter. With Porter now well removed from the hamstring pull that limited him through much of training camp, it's likely that he'll remain in the starting lineup and function as the Bears' No. 1 corner ahead of Ball and the struggling Kyle Fuller. Look for Porter to match up with the Chiefs' Jeremy Maclin in Week 5.
Bears cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, the Chicago Tribune reports. With Porter again unable to play, Sherrick McManis will serve as the nickelback, behind starting corners Kyle Fuller and Alan Ball. If McManis plays well, Porter may be bumped down to the fourth or fifth spot on the depth chart upon rejoining the team.
The Bears will be without linebacker Sam Acho and cornerback Tracy Porter during their season opener this Sunday, the team announced.
Veteran cornerback Tracy Porter, who was cut by the Redskins last month, was signed by the Bears to a one-year contract Monday, per ESPN.com. Porter appeared in just two games with Washington due to shoulder injuries. He has 10 interceptions over seven seasons but played his best football with the Saints. New Bears GM Ryan Pace worked with Porter in New Orleans.
