The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that Walker has sustained a calf strain and is currently racing the clock to be back in time for the Rabbitohs season-opener in Las Vegas to kick off the 2024 season.
“I spoke to him before I boarded a flight from Brisbane, he told me he did his calf and was out,” Griffiths told The Herald.
“It's a massive blow for us and a massive blow for Cody because he's a player who makes himself available every year.
“He loves the game and that passion and leadership exudes out of him when he plays.”
