It has been a rough stretch of football for former UGA standout D’Andre Walker.
This weekend, the NFL’s Tennessee Titans placed the rookie outside linebacker from Georgia on the injured reserve for the entire 2019 season for injuries suffered during training camp.
It was yet another big blow for Walker, who likely has his NFL draft stock fall after suffering a groin injury in the SEC Championship game.
Perhaps, more importantly to UGA fans, Walker’s departure from the Alabama game was mighty costly for the Bulldogs, as replacement Brenton Cox struggled with containing Crimson Tide quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Back to Walker: He was selected in the fifth round by the Titans, where there was good opportunity for Walker to play early after the retirement of Derrick Morgan. Walker signed a four-contract worth $2.7 million, including a signing bonus of $266,749.
