In the final game of the regular season, the Packers were hanging onto a three-point lead with the rival Lions driving down the field. After the refs missed a dirty play on Detroit running back D’Andre Swift as he was elbowed in the head after the play, the team’s trainers came out to check on him.
Walker was initially flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct but allowed to stay in the game. After a brief review and discussion, though, the refs stopped play and ejected him from the contest.
Earlier in the season, Walker was also ejected on Sunday Night Football in a contest against the Bills when he shoved an undressed inactive Buffalo practice squad player on the sidelines. Suffice it to say his temperament in primetime could use some work.

Walker has been a great player on the field in his rookie season with the Packers. Unfortunately, most people will only remember his boneheaded penalties and how costly they proved for Green Bay in crucial primetime moments.
