JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Mike Walker has been released from the hospital following treatment for a knee infection.

Walker, who was released Wednesday, sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee Oct. 5 against Pittsburgh and did not travel with the team to Denver last weekend.

He's one of the team's leading receivers with 12 catches for 161 yards this season.
