“I'm built different,” Walker said. “I stand on that. I know I'm not built like nobody else. I live by it in everything I do, from how I work, how I grind and obviously, my injuries. I've never been hurt before, so for me to bounce back, that was the main thing I had on my mind.” 

“I'm a man of my word. And, I still I stood on what I said. I said I was gonna come back, and I was gonna be able to participate in OTAs, which I'm doing,” Walker said. “If it was up to me, I'll be running around around right now. But, it's not up to me. So, honestly, I'm just trying to stay focused and continue to just strive to be the best I can be. Like I said, I'm seven months post-op, and I feel great. I'm running around cutting and doing everything I need to be. It's just, it's not my time yet. So, I ‘gotta' wait.”
