Walker had six total tackles, a tackle for a loss and a pass defensed in Sunday's loss at the Jets.
Walker started at middle linebacker and played on 60 of the defense's 71 snaps, so he looks back to full strength after leaving the prior game with a possible concussion.
Walker (concussion) was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.
Walker appears to have cleared the league's concussion protocol after logging full practice sessions Thursday and Friday, so he'll be ready for Sunday after playing just 14 defensive snaps Week 5 against the Patriots. He's accounted for 36 tackles (26 solo) and one interception in five games this season.
Walker (concussion) worked at full speed in Thursday's practice.
Walker still hasn't cleared the league's concussion protocol. Turning in a full practice is certainly an important step toward playing Sunday versus the Jets, although Friday's session will offer even greater clarity regarding his ability to suit up. The second-year pro has 36 tackles, one sack and one interception through five games.
With both Walker and Darius Leonard (ankle) now out, the Colts will look to some combination of Matthew Adams, Skai Moore and Zaire Franklin to fill their linebacker corps alongside Najee Goode. Walker will look to clear the league's concussion protocol prior to Week 6.
Walker is being evaluated for a concussion in Thursday's game against the Patriots.
The Colts are already desperately thin as a team, and with standout rookie Darius Leonard (ankle) inactive, Walker's absence could seriously debilitate the Colts' run defense. He will need to clear the league's concussion protocol before returning to action.
