Ill Broncos corner might return

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos corner Tracy Porter practiced fully Thursday and will travel to Kansas City on Sunday.

Porter, whose status hasn't been made official, has not played since Oct. 7 as doctors tried to regulate his medication after experiencing symptoms similar to those he felt before a seizure over the summer.

Porter said he has felt fine for about three weeks and is grateful to be practicing and traveling.

"I looked at it as a lesson, trying to teach me something," he said; "open my eyes to something new."

Bills: Corner Leodis McKelvin will not dispute a $75 fine for failing to follow orders during a flight Tuesday. He refused to turn off his phone and refused to buckle his seat belt.

Falcons: Receiver Julio Jones was limited at practice while linebacker Sean Weatherspoon sat. Jones did not practice last week because of a sore right ankle but played Sunday. Weatherspoon, who missed three games with a sprained right ankle, previously said he will play Sunday against the Bucs.

49ers: Quarterback Alex Smith, who sustained a concussion Nov. 11, has been cleared to play but Colin Kaepernick will start Sunday, reported.

Vikings: Receiver Percy Harvin will miss his third consecutive game with a sprained ankle, reported.

Streak ends: Lions left tackle Jeff Backus sat with a hamstring injury. He had started 186 consecutive games, the NFL's longest active streak for a lineman and the third-longest overall.

Blackout: The Chargers' home game against the Ravens won't air in San Diego, their second blackout this season.
