Saints' Bunkley, Walker injured vs. Falcons

Share This Story



Saints defensive linemen Brodrick Bunkley and Tyrunn Walker have left New Orleans' regular-season opener against Atlanta with leg injuries

Team officials have listed both as questionable to return.

Bunkley, a nose tackle, injured his right leg when he appeared to be tangled up on a short running play in which Steven Jackson gained 3 yards deep in Saints territory in the first quarter.

Shortly before the half ended, Walker got caught in a pile and appeared to hurt his left knee as teammate Junior Galette sacked the Falcons' Matt Ryan.

The injuries meant more playing time for Akiem Hicks, Tom Johnson and rookie third-round pick John Jenkins.
