Report: Saints CB Tracy Porter had microfracture surgery

New Orleans Saints cornerback Tracy Porter is “ahead of schedule” in his recovery from offseason knee surgery, according to a trainer working with him, but it’s believed he had a microfracture procedure.

Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that trainer Wyatt Harris believes it was microfracture surgery, which can be challenging to recover from. Per the report, the star of the 2010 postseason is doing “all of his functional movement,” which includes change of direction.

Porter missed four games last season with a knee injury after he tore the lateral meniscus. He returned to complete the season before having the knee worked on. Porter’s status for the beginning of training camp –whenever that is – remains to be seen.
