In just his first game with the Cleveland Browns, linebacker Anthony Walker absolutely shined. He led the team with 10 total tackles (8 solo) and stepped in as the team's signal-caller on defense. But, a troubling injury report regarding the newest Browns linebacker came out of practice on Thursday.
Cleveland was dealt a crushing blow on Friday after revealing that Walker suffered a hamstring strain and will be headed to the injured reserve, meaning he's out at least for the next three weeks.
Anthony Walker Injury Update
This is another early-season blow to the Browns' linebacker corps, which is already without Jacob Phillips due to a torn bicep.
Heading into a Week 2 clash with the Houston Texans, the Browns will have to address their defensive signal-caller as the biggest priority. Reports suggest that newcomer John Johnson could operate in that role. The former Rams safety operated in that role last season in Los Angeles.
