Casey Walker Could Return To The Oklahoma Sooners “Soon”

+Read full article

According to an interview Natalie Pipkin gave to The Oklahoman on Tuesday, her son Casey Walker will return to the Oklahoma Sooners.

Walker has been taking time off from the Sooners football team while dealing with personal issues and did not travel with the team opening weekend to El Paso. The “personal issues” haven’t been elaborated on by head coach Bob Stoops. Stoops is normally pretty guarded in his responses when asked about player situations and there is no exception with Walker’s case.

Walker has had a rough injury history over the course of his Sooner career. He suffered a knee injury during his sophomore season, sitting out six games. He spent time in the hospital after a practice last season as a precautionary due to a hand in the throat that resulted in trouble breathing. He also sat out this season’s spring practices and the annual spring game due to a shoulder injury. Before taking time off for his personal issues, Walker was slated to start for the defense.

Pipkin didn’t give any more insight during the interview other than that he is doing great and that he would return to his teammates soon.

Walker’s return would be a welcome one to the defense. He brings depth back to the line and a sense of security. The Sooners defense struggled with UTEP‘s run game, having only two experienced on the field in Jamarkus McFarland and David King. The suspension of Stacy McGee and Walker taking time off really showed Saturday night on the rush defense.

Hopefully, this week will be a quiet news week out of Norman. By quiet I mean no more suspension or injury news. The Sooner Nation is already on half-panic mode. Another announcement with a negative tone could mean the pitchforks may make an appearance.
