Javon Walker, the celebrity player with Oakland Raiders, was found unconscious on a street in LA, on Monday, June 16. It was suspected that he was a victim of a robbery.
Bill Cassell, a police spokesman, said that Javon Walker was hospitalized at the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with significant injuries. He had an orbital fracture, where the bones surrounding the eye were broken. It could be a serious injury and prevent him from playing professional football.
Kirby Puckett, a Minnesota Twin outfielder, had his career ended when he suffered from an orbital fracture and had double vision.
