"After much deliberation and evaluation and soul searching between the team, the medical staff and Walter Jones," coach Jim Mora said. "It has been determined that the best thing to do for Walter, for this football team and for his future is to put him on injured reserve. So we're going to do that today. We're going to shut him down. We're going to let him heal up, have whatever procedures our medical staff feels is necessary and then re-evaluate early next year.
"I will say this, Walter has done everything that is humanly possible to try and get back and help this football team. He has been amazing in his attitude and his approach to this. His determination to get back on the football field has never been in question, but it's just not happening. It's just not happening.
