BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. needs season-ending surgery after suffering a torn quad tendon during Thursday's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The injury, which was confirmed by an MRI on Friday, is considered to require a five- to seven-month recovery, the source said.

Walker was carted off the field after being injured in the third quarter of the 29-17 Browns win. He lay facedown for several minutes before trainers put an air cast around his knee and helped him onto the cart. «He is a huge, huge, huge part of our football team, what he brings to us on the field and off the field,» Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday before the MRI results.

Walker, 27, had six tackles against Pittsburgh before his injury. He had a team-leading 113 tackles and one sack in 13 games last season, his first with Cleveland.
