Wildcats coach Bill Snyder did not address Walkers status during his weekly news conference Tuesday. But Walker, an Olathe North graduate, said on Twitter that he is walking with the help of crutches. He was helped off the field during Saturdays win over Texas Tech after hurting his leg.
Walkers teammates are preparing to play Oklahoma State, and possibly beyond, without him.
He is the kind of guy that really needs to be out on the field for his sake, fullback Braden Wilson said. But if were out there playing, giving everything we have, thats going to mean a lot to him although he cant be out there.
According to The Associated Press, wide receiver Curry Sexton said he had no doubts that youll see Tre back out there next August.
Walker, who leads the team onto the field before each game, has made 19 tackles this season for the 8-0 Wildcats, who are second in the BCS standings.
Snyder had better news about starting left tackle Cornelius Lucas, who will likely play against Oklahoma State after limping off the field against Texas Tech.
