Tray Walker, the Ravens cornerback who was critically injured in a motorbike crash Thursday night, had spoken of a curse in the Baltimore locker room late last season but said he was not superstitious.

The curse became a topic when several Ravens with lockers next to each other all got hurt and ended up on IR, one after the other. First Terrell Suggs, then Steve Smith, who had the locker next to Suggs; then Breshad Perriman, Justin Forsett and Chris Canty.

Walker was the next in line. But he shrugged it off at the time.

"Someone asked me if I wanted to move my locker," Walker told ESPN. "We’re going to knock on all of this wood in here and pray and hope nothing happens." "You got to do what you got to do to take care of your body," he added. "You can’t escape from injuries. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. If not, thank God."
