RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-14

Walker will not need surgery to repair a knee injury that put him on IR on Jan. 5 and ended his season early, Jake Trotter of reports.

Walker last played Week 14 against the Jaguars, and after missing multiple games, was eventually put on injured reserve. According to Trotter, Walker stated he could have returned in another month, so it sounds like he should be cleared for any offseason activities. The 28-year-old is set to be a free agent once again, after spending each of the previous three seasons in Cleveland on one-year deals.

Shifts to IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

The Browns placed Walker (knee) on injured reserve Friday.

Walker has been dealing with this knee issue over the last handful of weeks and his most recent appearance came in Week 14. The 28-year-old will now be forced to miss the Browns' next four games, but he is eligible to return to the field if Cleveland makes it to the Super Bowl. Expect Tony Fields to fill in for Walker in the Browns' linebacker corps for the foreseeable future.

Out for Sunday at Cincy

Walker (knee) is out for Sunday's game at Cincinnati, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Walker will miss his fourth consecutive game in Week 18 due to a lingering knee injury. In his stead, it would make some sense for the Browns to employ 2021 fifth-rounder Tony Fields against a pass-happy Bengals offense.

Won't suit up vs. Jets

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-27

Walker (knee) is out for Thursday's game versus the Jets, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Walker will be sidelined for his third straight game in Week 17. In his absence, 2021 fifth-rounder Tony Fields is likely to continue to see more work at linebacker against a pass-heavy Jets offense.

Unavailable for Week 16

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-22

Walker (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Texans, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Walker will miss a second consecutive game as he nurses a knee injury. Jordan Kunaszyk (calf) is also unavailable for Week 16, so Tony Fields will once again see an increase in workload at middle linebacker versus Houston.

Out versus Chicago

Walker (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Walker was able to log back-to-back limited practice sessions to end the week, though it appears he is still hampered by a knee issue and will miss his second game of the season. With Jordan Junaszyk (calf) also out Sunday, Tony Fields figures to be the likely candidate to fill in as the starting middle linebacker alongside Sione Takitaki and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah.

Iffy for Week 15

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-15

Walker (knee) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Walker was held out of practice to start the week before finishing as a limited participant in back-to-back sessions. He was dealing with a hamstring injury that held him out for Week 12 against the Broncos, but he returned for the following two games. Walker has 44 tackles (23 solo), one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries over 12 games this season.

Will play at Rams

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-01

Walker (hamstring) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at the Rams, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Walker missed practice Thursday, but he was able to return to action Friday, putting himself back on pace to suit up in Week 13. He should start at linebacker Sunday next to Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Sione Takitaki.

Inactive Sunday

Walker (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

The starting middle linebacker suffered the injury in Week 11 versus the Steelers. Mohamoud Diabate should start in his absence.
