Detroit Lions defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker (leg) is having surgery to repair a broken fibula, and he will be placed on injured reserve, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Walker and Haloti Ngata (calf), the Lions' starting defensive tackles, both suffered injuries during Monday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks . Ngata's injury doesn't appear nearly as serious, so the Lions may only need to replace one starter. Caraun Reid and Gabe Wright figure to see more snaps.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker was carted off the field with a left ankle injury Monday night, Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reports. The injury appeared to be a tibia or fibula fracture, David Chao of Sirius XM reports.
It sounds like Walker's in for an extended absence, as this was a gruesome injury.
