Delanie Walker injury: Titans TE leaves game against Colts

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The big tight end took a hard shot and is being evaluated for concussion symptoms.

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker left the field against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon after taking a hard shot in the first quarter. Reports indicate he is being evaluated for concussion-like symptoms.

UPDATE: Walker has suffered a concussion and will not return.

Walker made what appeared to be a catch for a short gain before being hit simultaneously by two Colts defenders at his knees and up around his shoulders. He landed hard on the turf head-first, losing the ball in the process.

Initially ruled a fumble, the play was reviewed and ruled an incomplete pass, although it appeared as though Walker had made the catch and was down by contact.

Walker remained on the turf for several moments before being helped off by medical staff. He was seen sitting by himself on the bench and did not appear to be coming back any time soon.

The big tight end has been a major factor in his first season with Tennessee. He has 44 receptions for 449 yards and leads the team with five touchdown grabs.
