Walker tweeted on Tuesday that he was on crutches and teammates tweeting made it sound like the knee injury suffered in last week's win over Texas Tech might be serious.

Wildcats fullback Braden Wilson tweeted that it was a “sad deal.” Wide receiver Curry Sexton said on Twitter that there were “no doubts that you'll see Tre back out there next August.”

Through eight games, Walker had 52 tackles.


OSU and K-State produced a wild and entertaining game a year ago, with the Cowboys finally prevailing 52-45 at Boone Pickens Stadium.

The Cowboys scored the game-winning touchdown with 2:16 remaining, then held on in the final seconds.

It was a tough loss for the Wildcats.

But also a learning experience.

“It was just another game that showed that we could play with those top teams last year,” Wilson said. “And even though it was a loss and that it really hurt, it boosted our confidence a little bit in that respect.”


K-State coach Bill Snyder said this week that he notices OSU's improvement on defense.

And overall, he said, that makes for a balanced team to contend with.

“They are up in the rankings in our conference in defense,” he said. “Their specialists are as good as you can get. They rank high nationally in some facets of the kicking team. They rank high nationally in all aspects of offense.

“They have tremendous balance. And that has been brought upon, perhaps, by the improvement in each of those areas of their defense.”
