Tulane's Walker moved to rehabilitation center

TULSA — Tulane officials say seriously injured football player Devon Walker has been moved to a new facility as he continues therapy for his fractured spine.

The university released a statement Tuesday night from Walker's parents, Booker and Inez Walker. They said "we are pleased to have completed the transfer of Devon to a comprehensive in-patient rehabilitation center to continue his recovery."

The Walkers said they were grateful to doctors and staff at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where their son was taken after he was injured during the Tulane-Tulsa game on Sept. 8.

They did not disclose the name of the rehabilitation center and said they appreciated "everyone's understanding of our request for privacy as we focus on his recovery."

Tulane spokesman Roger Dunaway said recently that Walker is "alert and actively participating in respiratory and other therapies that are part of his recovery."
