Packers’ LB Walker Ejected After Pushing Lions’ ATC

Six days after the Buffalo Bills medical staff saved the live of safety Damar Hamlin, a Green Bay Packers linebacker was ejected from competition after shoving an athletic trainer from the Detroit Lions’ staff while attending to an injured player on the field.

Quay Walker was quickly ejected from the game — the second time he’s been ejected this season.

walkerA recent story from Yahoo! Sports highlighted Walkers’ action and the reaction from those on both teams. Below is an excerpt from the Yahoo! Sports article.

Midway through the fourth quarter at Lambeau Field, Lions athletic training staff ran out onto the field to tend to running back D’Andre Swift, who was injured on a 2-yard run. As the athletic trainer tried to navigate through players to reach Swift, he brushed by Walker who then shoved him in the back, which drew the flag and an ejection.

The athletic trainer moved Walker out of the way slightly to get in so he could access Swift on the ground, but it was nothing out of the ordinary.
