“I want to publicly apologize for what happened on Sunday night. I again reacted to my emotions and take full responsibility for making another stupid decision. Since then I have wondered why I did what I did when the coach was doing his job! I was wrong!” tweeted the rookie.
“I understand that I have to deal with everything that comes with the decision I made and I’m definitely paying for it now.”
Walker also explained why he was sobbing in the tunnel as he made his way to the locker room.

“Also to explain my frustration in the tunnel,” he wrote. “I wasn’t upset that I got kicked out, I just knew I messed up again and I was wrong for what I did and I couldn’t believe I did it again. To the Detroit lions and all the coaching staff, including the person I did this too, I’m sorry.
Walker was penalized in the fourth quarter after apparently pushing a member of the Lions coaching staff who was trying to reach for the running back By Andre Swift. Walker was ejected from the game.
Packer’s Coach Matt LaFleur denounced Walker’s actions.
“It’s unacceptable,” the Packers coach said via Pro Football Talk. “I have a much higher standard for our players than doing stupid things like that. We have a guy sent off twice. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that in my career. We have to be a lot tougher mentally.
“Anytime our guys commit personal fouls I take it very personally because I think it’s always a reflection of myself and the standards we set for these players. And we have to be better and we have to learn of this because it is unacceptable.”
