As Kansas State has started the season 8-0 and is ranked third nationally, there have been very few injury obstacles through which the Wildcats needed to navigate.
Unfortunately, that appears to have come to an end.
While the school has yet to confirm the severity of the injury, multiple media outlets are reporting that linebacker Tre Walker, who the Manhattan Mercury describe’s as one of the Wildcats’ “most inspirational leaders,” is out indefinitely with a right knee injury.
In fact, one of Walker’s teammates sounded an ominous season-ending tone to the injury.
“He’s the kind of guy who really needs to be out on the field, for his sake,” fullback Braden Wilson told the Mercury. “With us out there, giving it everything we have, that’s going to be mean a lot to him, even though he can’t be out there.
“He’ll be there in spirit with us. It’s a sad deal, but as always, we just need to keep on moving.”
Walker, who wrote on Twitter that he is walking with the help of crutches, has 19 tackles on the season.
