Packers linebacker Quay Walker apologized via Twitter on Monday morning after he was ejected in his team’s regular-season finale on Sunday night when he suddenly shoved a Lions medical trainer on the field.
Walker then was seen crying in the Lambeau Field tunnel while walking back to the locker room.
Also on Monday, he explained why he reacted the way he did.
“Also to explain my frustration in the tunnel. I wasn’t upset about being kicked out I just knew I messed up again and was wrong for what I did and couldn’t believe I did it again,” Walker posted on Twitter. “To the Detroit lions and to the entire training staff including the person I did that too. I’m sorry.”
Unfortunately for Walker, his stellar rookie year ends on a sour note. This is the second time Walker was ejected this year for shoving a training staff member. The first incident happened against the Bills when he shoved a staff member on the sideline after they helped him off the ground.
Walker was a key player on Green Bay’s defense, and they could’ve used him late in the game as the Lions ran out of the clock to stop the Packers offense from getting the ball again.
Hopefully, he learns his lesson next year.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
