Unfortunately for the team, the MRI results made it clear Walker won’t be back on the field anytime soon.
Walker suffered a season-ending torn quad, according to multiple reports. Walker will undergo surgery to repair it.
The injury occurred with 10:22 left in the third quarter of last night’s game. With Walker already down after engaging Steelers offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafor on a block, Okorafor then jumped on Walker’s back.
Okorafor said after the game that he was “just playing ball.”
Walker initially signed a one-year deal with the Browns in March 2021 and played nine games for the team last season. He re-signed with Cleveland on a one-year deal in March 2022.
The Colts selected Walker in the fifth round of the 2017 draft and he spent his first four seasons with the franchise.
