Porter to start Sunday for Saints

Tracy Porter will continue to start for the Saints this week in a re-shuffled secondary, according to a blog report today from Times-Picayune beat reporter Jeff Duncan.

The former Hoosier started and made two critical plays in the Saints’ season-opening 24-20 win over Tampa Bay, prompting a column about him, “Porter gives great first impression,” in yesterday’s Times-Picayune. Porter stepped in front of a receiver to prevent a touchdown in the third quarter and broke up a potential first-down pass near midfield in the fourth quarter.
