Ravens 'Pray for Tray' after CB Walker critically injured in crash
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tray Walker is in critical condition after a motorbike accident in Southeast Florida, the team announced Thursday night.
Miami-Dade Police say Walker was riding a Honda dirt bike with no lights and wearing dark clothing when he collided with a Ford Escape at an intersection at about 8 p.m. Thursday. ABC 10 reports that police are looking for a New England Patriots player who witnessed the accident.
Coach John Harbaugh's statement didn't even try to hide his emotion: "Oh my God. This is devastating news. Our prayers and hopes are with Tray and his family tonight."
Walker has been mostly a special teams player since being drafted out of Texas Southern in the fourth round last year, playing in eight games and recording one tackle.
The 23-year-old dedicated his rookie season to his father, who died of a heart attack in 2014, ESPN reports.
