Walker will make his preseason debut Friday night at Kansas City after missing the first two preseason games with an injured thumb. Walker needed 12 stitches to repair an injury earlier in camp.
He’ll get a chance to play in a game with quarterback Marcus Mariota for the first time.
“You always want to get to the regular season, but it’s good to practice and work the rust off, and I haven’t gotten the opportunity to play with Marcus yet, so I am looking forward to that,’’ Walker said. “Marcus is playing great.
“I’m looking forward to being out there with my teammates.”
The story went on to say Walker, heading into his 10th NFL season, isn’t quite 100 percent. He’s been practicing with a small protective cast on the thumb area, and the device has forced him to catch the ball a little differently.
