Walker made his first NFL start in this match. If there were any doubt on how the rookie would fare in his first game as a feature back, it should be out of the window now. He rushed a total of 97 yards, 34 yards being his longest carry. Also, his touchdown on 21 carries was of vast importance as it helped his team keep up the winning momentum. In addition to these, his performance in the catches was noteworthy.
As the starting RB Rashaad Penny is out of the season due to his lower leg injury, it seems Walker is set to be the feature back for the Seahawks for quite some time ahead. The Seahawks’ next game is against the Chargers.
