JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Mike
Walker missed practice Friday, hours after he was with a friend who
was fatally stabbed outside an Orlando nightclub.

Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio said in a statement that "Mike
came to me this morning prior to meetings to tell me that he was
visiting friends in Orlando. He explained that a friend was stabbed
and died. I excused him from practice today to deal with this
situation."

stabbed inside Club Whispers during an argument Friday around 2:26
a.m. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. The investigation is
ongoing.

The incident comes after Jaguars left tackle Richard Collier was

his left leg amputated below the knee.
