Tulane football Devon Walker is lucky to be alive tonight.
He fractured his spine in a head-to-head collision with a teammate against Tulsa on Saturday. He also suffered a broken neck and a collapsed lung.
He was also revived on the field, and a tracheotomy was performed on Walker. He is currently on an emergency and trauma center at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa.
“Devon Walker sustained a cervical spine fracture,” said Tulane in a statement. “He is at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa where he is in stable condition. Currently, he is in traction with a lot of swelling in his neck and he is undergoing treatment for the swelling. The current plan is for him to have surgery in the next one to two days. He is being treated by specialists. The Tulsa physicians did a great job taking care of Devon.”
His mother was watching the game on television when her son was injured. His brother said the family are still awaiting an update on Devon’s condition.
“We haven’t heard much at all,” he added. “We’re still kind of in the dark right now.”
