DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter says his surgically repaired right knee feels better every day, and he's expected to play in the season opener Sunday at Washington.
Porter underwent arthroscopic surgery Aug. 7 and missed much of training camp. He returned to practice on a limited basis last week and has gradually increased his workload.
``He had a nice practice today,'' coach Cam Cameron said Monday. ``It looks like he's ready to play.''
Porter said he still has swelling in the knee, but is eager to play after missing all four exhibitions games.
``Sitting and watching makes you want to get out and play,'' he said. ``I sat and watched enough. I'm gearing myself up to where I'm going to play on Sunday.''
A three-time Pro Bowl linebacker, Porter received a guaranteed $20 million in March to sign with Miami after spending his first eight NFL seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
