Erik Walden Will Start Sunday

By NBC26 News Team. CREATED Nov 30, 2011

Packers linebacker Erik Walden will start Sunday against the Giants. That's the word this afternoon from Coach Mike McCarthy. Walden was arrested and spent last weekend in jail accused of domestic battery following an arguement with his girlfriend. However, no charges have been filed at this time. Coach McCarthy today addressed the situation.

Mike McCarthy said, "His situation is obviously under review, going through the legal process, no different than the process that the NFL has in place, so with that we respect that and based on the information we have to date, Erik will play in the game."

Walden's next court appearance is on December 7th. The Packers face the New York Giants Sunday at 3:15.
