Taylor Walker isn’t the only Crow who’ll be missing round one through injury.
LISTEN TO TEX'S INJURY UPDATE:
Tex joined Roo and Ditts on Tuesday morning and was quizzed about the fitness of three key players - himself included.
Walker revealed he has ruled himself out of round one, while the news wasn’t any better for Brad Crouch and Riley Knight, who will also miss through injury.
Crouch has been battling an abdominal strain, while Knight is recovering from ankle surgery.
Walker, however, is excited for the opportunity it will create.
“We spoke as a group the other day about why we’re in good shape, and one of the reasons is we’ve got depth in our squad, and through people missing out it creates opportunity,” he told Triple M.
"Guys like Darcy Fogarty, Lachie Murphy, Tom Doedee, (Cam) Ellis-Yolmen, Curtly Hampton that haven’t had much of an opportunity will now get an opportunity to play for our footy club."
