Walker was added to the roster Wednesday to fill a hole created by starting cornerback Cedric Griffin's season-ending right knee injury.

The 29-year-old Walker played in 14 games last season for the Ravens.
Walker was inactive for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos but no clear injury was given. Instead, it could be because he was called for a pass interference penalty in the fourth quarter of Baltimore's 17-14 loss to Cincinnati on Oct. 11 and gave up a 58-yard completion in the closing minutes of a 33-31 defeat at Minnesota a week later.|||||||
