The Cowboys weren’t shy about throwing Frank Walker into the fire just days after signing the veteran--not that they had much of a choice. Walker filled in for the injured Orlando Scandrick as the Cowboys’ third cornerback on Sunday, and had a quiet day--which, of course, is a good thing for a corner.
“This was the plan,” Walker said after the 27-24 win, per ESPN Dallas. “I knew I was going to be in there.”
Walker, a nine-year veteran of the NFL who spent training camp with the Tennessee Titans, said that he didn’t feel all that rusty, despite spending the first week of the season at home, where he worked out by himself.
“It was a beautiful thing,” Walker said. “I knew a week ago I was going to play here because they contacted my agent. I guess when they freed up a spot they brought me in. No rust. No rust. Ready. I worked out every day during the week I was out. No rust.”
