Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tray Walker, a fourth-round pick of the team from Texas Southern in the 2015 NFL draft, was critically injured in a motorcycle crash in Florida on Thursday night.
According to NBC Miami, Walker was involved in the crash at Northwest 21st Avenue and Northwest 75th Street in northwest Miami-Dade.
Walker was immediately taken to the Jackson Memorial Hospital where he’s in the trauma center in critical condition.
A native of Miami, Walker attended a local high school in the region before playing college ball in Texas. He appeared in eight games as a rookie, recording just one tackle.
