Let’s call this one Just Say Maybe. A year ago when the Lions signed Walker, I was really high on the guy. I still like the idea of Walker. Plus the Lions need help on the interior of their defensive line. What scares me is Walkers injury.
This isn’t your run of the mill injury. It isn’t even one injury. We are talking about a broken fibula and even worse, a dislocated ankle. The ankle alone has a recovery time of 4-6 weeks for normal people. The fibula is 12 weeks. Keep in mind these recovery times aren’t meant for athletes that use their legs the way that Walker’s position demands.
I question if Walker ever plays again and if he does, will he ever be the same? I’m rooting for a full recovery and return to the Lions, I sadly can’t see it happening at the moment. I hope he proves me wrong.
