San Diego Chargers place OLB Devan Walker on Injured-Reserve

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Rookie Outside Linebacker Devan Walker has been put on the IR by the San Diego Chargers, which was probably the only way he was going to avoid being cut.

Well, this is unfortunate.

Walker was one guy I saw at Fan Fest that stood out to me because he was so small compared to the other Outside Linebackers. I worried that he wouldn't be able to make the team because he wouldn't contribute a ton to Special Teams, but now he gets to be a San Diego Chargers for the entire season. Injuries/careers are funny that way.

Devan Walker will be around the complex, getting treatment, and might even travel with the team. He could probably learn a lot from guys like Dwight Freeney and Jarret Johnson this season. Perhaps that'll be enough for him to have a good camp next year and possibly make the 2014 San Diego Chargers.
