Saints wideout raising money to help injured Tulane player Devon Walker
 
Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan doesn’t have a household name.

He’s not letting that stop him from trying to do what he can to help an injured member of the football fraternity. Tulane player Devon Walker fractured his spine during a game against Tulsa on Sept. 8 and he remains in an Oklahoma hospital while he recovers from the injury. Dealing with such injuries requires a lot of money and Morgan is doing what he can to make sure Walker has enough of it.

Morgan is donating tickets to this week’s game against the Chiefs, a football autographed by members of the Saints and a dinner for two to a raffle that’s being conducted on the Tulane campus. Nakia Hogan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune has more details on how to buy a raffle ticket and there are other ways to help out the Devon Walker Fund that the school has helped set up to benefit Walker and his family.

The Saints’ importance to the city of New Orleans has been a frequent talking point since hurricanes ravaged the city in 2005. It’s nice to see that Morgan has bought into that connection with designs on helping an injured member of the community.

Say what you want about Morgan, but a very stand up move!

This is why I love these guys, 0-2 or not. They are standup people!

Let's hope he starts catching the stuff thrown his way so we can keep a dude with this kind of character around. Great model for the kids, unlike so many

This is why I'm a Saints fan. I just wish the defense would take some of that stand-up and do it at the line of scrimmage once in a while.
