Linebacker Tre Walker out for No. 3 K-State

It appears that Kansas State linebacker Tre Walker will miss

significant time after hurting his right knee in Saturday’s win

over Texas Tech.

Wildcats coach Bill Snyder has a policy to not discuss injuries,

but Walker tweeted on Tuesday that he was on crutches and teammates

indicated he may not return this season.

Fullback Braden Wilson called the injury a ”sad deal,” and

wide receiver Curry Sexton said he had ”no doubts that you’ll see

Tre back out there next August.”

Walker made 52 tackles and three tackles for loss while helping

the third-ranked Wildcats to an 8-0 start. They’re 5-0 in the Big

12 heading into Saturday’s game against Oklahoma State.

Kansas State moved up to No. 2 in the BCS standings this

week.
