Lions safety Tracy Walker will watch the end of the Week 1 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles from the locker room. Walker was ejected after losing his composure and committing two personal fouls on the same play.
The incident happened in the third quarter of the game, with the Eagles already leading 31-21. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts slid late on a run play and Walker slammed into him. It was immediately flagged for unnecessary roughness on No. 21, though the intent and late nature of Hurts’ slide made that a questionable choice.
Walker left nothing to the imagination with the next one. He threw a punch at an Eagles player, earning the ejection.
Here’s the hit:

Walker was recently selected as a team captain by his fellow Lions players. He was having a very solid game prior to the ejection.
