Anthony Walker Jr. was dealt a tough blow Thursday night.

During the third quarter of the Browns-Steelers Thursday Night Football matchup, Pittsburgh running back Jaylen Warren darted through the middle after receiving a Mitchell Trubisky shovel pass.

Nearby was the Browns linebacker, who went down awkwardly after being blocked by Chukwuma Okorafor. Walker was face-down on the ground after the collision, at which point Okorafor deliberately went to ground on top of Walker.

Walker needed to be carted off the field after getting his left leg put in an aircast.

Okorafor was penalized for being an ineligible downfield receiver, which resulted in no play. He was not penalized for anything related to Walker.
