Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tray Walker is currently in surgery after suffering head trauma Thursday night in a dirt bike accident in Florida. A new report has now emerged that connects an unnamed New England Patriots player to the accident.
Liane Morejon of WPLG 10 in Miami wrote on Twitter that “cops are looking for a Patriots player present during Tray walker dirt bike crash; is apparently no where to be found now.”

Walker was transported immediately after the accident to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he was shuttled straight into the trauma center for emergency surgery.

Given the way head coach John Harbaugh is reacting to the news, and given the immediacy of Walker’s surgery, this is clearly a life-and-death situation going on.
