CB Porter Coming Back Nicely From Offseason Knee Surgery

Saints cornerback Tracy Porter is expecting to be healed from offseason knee surgery in time for the start of the regular season, according to trainer Wyatt Harris. Harris, who trains Porter at the Sonic Boom conditioning and strength training academy in Jefferson, said Porter has been running and doing “all of his functional movement,” such as backpedaling and change of direction work.

Harris labeled Porter as “ahead of schedule” but said he has been running “with caution” and has not been doing a lot of full acceleration yet.

Porter had a significant clean-up procedure performed on his left knee shortly after the season. The specifics of the surgery are unknown, but Harris believed it included a microfracture procedure to stimulate healing. Porter missed four games with the knee injury in October after tearing the lateral meniscus. He returned for the remainder of the season but needed additional clean-up work after the season ended.
