Pro Bowl cornerback Tracy Porter is back to practice again, but he was held out of some drills, while Peyton Manning practiced through the cracked thumbnail on his throwing hand.
Starting cornerback Tracy Porter was a full participant Wednesday in practice while Peyton Manning and John Fox talked to the media about the big matchup afterward.
