Rotoworld and Danny O’Neil are reporting that Big Walt has been shipped off to the Injured Reserve list, ending his season and likely his career. More on this if anything develops, here’s Mora via Danny O’Neil:
“After much deliberation and evaluation and soul searching between the team, the medical staff and Walter Jones,” coach Jim Mora said. “It has been determined that the best thing to do for Walter, for this football team and for his future is to put him on injured reserve. So we’re going to do that today. We’re going to shut him down. We’re going to let him heal up, have whatever procedures our medical staff feels is necessary and then re-evaluate early next year.
Lofa Tatupu’s 2009 status will be known by tonight, according to Mora. He’s being looked at by famed Dr. James Andrews as we speak.
