NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Devon Walker, the Tulane safety paralyzed when his spine was fractured in a game last September, will be part of Tulane's season this year.

The Times-Picayune reports that Tulane coach Curtis Johnson is still working out Walker's role for the coming season.

One possibility mentioned by Johnson: Walker may be put to work helping break down recruiting film.

Johnson says he is discussing the plans with Tulane players and working to use Walker in a way that will fit in with his extensive therapy and rehab work.
