Denver Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter will not play in Monday night's game against the San Diego Chargers because of an illness.

Porter did not make the trip to San Diego, according to the Denver Post. The starter was reportedly dizzy and light-headed, so the team's medical staff decided that Porter should stay home and rest.

Either cornerback Tony Carter or nickelback Chris Harris will start in place of Porter.
