Scottish Footballer Jamie Walker Out With Broken Foot

News broke Monday that Hearts midfielder Jamie Walker will be out ten weeks after breaking his foot.
The 20 year old was injured in the final minutes of last Saturday's Premiership defeat by Motherwell at Tynecastle. He limped off the field.
Walker received the results of his broken foot from X-rays Monday afternoon and had surgery Thursday.
Locke told Heart News, "It didn't look good for the lad on Saturday and now we know for sure. He's had a scan and he'll have surgery later this week. It's just another blow for us which we'll need to take on the chin."
This is a blow for the Hearts, who are sitting at the foot of the Scottish Premiership and cannot add any players to their squad because of a signing embargo for being in administration. Administrator BDO is making a second attempt to have the embargo eased or lifted, with the growing injury list as proof of their need. They are also subject to separate sanctions from the Scottish Football Association, which means they cannot sign any players over the age of 21 until February. The Hearts are in a bind.
Fellow midfielder Jason Holt has been injured since November with a similar injury as Walker's, captain Danny Wilson has missed the last three matches with a virus, and defender Kevin McHattie failed to complete the full 90 minutes last weekend.
"It gives an opportunity to someone else, but our options are getting fewer," added Locke.
"It's the same type of injury which Jason Holt has. It's a massive blow as he's been one of the players giving us a goal threat this season. We have a few out through injury and illness and Jamie's another one now to add to that list."
