Update on Tulane's Devon Walker
Tulsa, Oklahoma - Tulsa, Oklahoma -
Tulane Athletics Statement Update on Senior Safety Devon Walker:
According to Tulane University's team physician Dr. Greg Stewart, Devon Walker underwent surgery this afternoon. In a three hour surgery at St. Francis hospital in Tulsa, neurosurgeons stabilized his spine. He is now in recovery and we anticipate Devon will remain in ICU for the next few days. He is in stable condition and it will be several days before we can assess his condition post-surgery.
The University of Tulsa Statement:
The University of Tulsa has received many requests from the general public asking what can be done to support Devon Walker, a Tulane University student-athlete who is in a Tulsa-area hospital after suffering a serious injury in Saturday's Tulsa-Tulane college football game. The University of Tulsa has been in constant communication with Tulane University officials in an effort to assist them and the Walker family during this extremely difficult time. On Monday, the university will make an announcement detailing where friends and fans may contribute financial and in-kind gifts for Devon and his family.
The University of Tulsa and Tulane University continue to ask for thoughts and prayers to be with the Walker family.
