Denver Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter has been cleared for game action and could make his first appearance in six weeks against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Porter has missed the Broncos’ last fives games after being sidelined due to experiencing symptoms similar to the seizure he suffered during training camp in August. According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, just because he’s cleared doesn’t mean Porter will play against the Chiefs this week.

“I finally made the plane,” Porter said. “Now, we’ll see if I make the field.”

With Chris Harris and Tony Carter playing well in Porter’s absence, Porter may not be immediately be inserted back in the lineup. He may not even be active on game day. Even Porter would understand being held out with the way his teammates are playing.

“Chris and Tony, everybody has been playing great,” Porter said. “Why would you stop their chemistry? I wouldn’t stop that chemistry. We’ll see what happens.”

For the season, Porter has appeared in just five games with 16 tackles, six passes defensed and an interception that was returned for a touchdown in the Broncos season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
