In a bizarre case that is just hitting the press now, new Raiders WR Javon Walker was found unconscious on the streets of Las Vegas with an orbital fracture on Monday morning. KVVU.com is reporting that the wide out was transported to Sunrise Medical Center’s Trauma unit, where he was listed in fair condition as of late Monday afternoon. Police only would state that Walker had an orbital fracture.
Reports in the Las Vegas Review-Journal say that Walker was seen at a club, Tryst at the Wynn, “spraying the crowd with some of the 15 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose champagne he ordered.” From there, not much is known. He may have gotten someone upset, maybe a guy wanted to make a name for himself, or maybe Walker just messed with the wrong girl with his champagne parade.
Last season Walker played in just eight games with the Broncos before he had a knee injury, he only had just 26 catches for 287 yards and no touchdowns. Not exactly a good start for a guy that’s supposed to revive the Raiders passing game this year as their number one wide receiver.
