Lions’ Walker ejected after swiping at Eagles, hitting Hurts


DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Lions defensive back Tracy Walker was ejected for swiping in a scrum with the Philadelphia Eagles after hitting Jalen Hurts near his head as he went to the turf. Walker was sent off in the third quarter when the Eagles were leading the Lions by 17 points on Sunday. Detroit defenders made contact with Hurts multiple times when he slid earlier in the game, but did not draw penalties. When Walker hit Hurts above the shoulders after he went down on a run into Detroit territory, Philadelphia players came to their quarterback’s defense and Walker responded with a swipe.
