Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker along with his former San Francisco teammate Aldon Smith have been named in a lawsuit by a man who said he was shot during a party at Smith's house.

In the suit filed Tuesday in Santa Clara County Superior Court, Ronndale Esporlas says Smith and his former teammate Delanie Walker fired weapons illegally during the party at Smith's San Jose home in June 2012.

The lawsuit says Smith and Walker were intoxicated on Smith's balcony when they began firing gunshots in the air while trying to end the party.

Esporlas says he was shot twice in the crossfire between two groups after Walker allegedly fired more shots in the driveway.

Neither Walker nor Smith, who was stabbed at the party, has been charged in the incident. Walker now plays for the Tennessee Titans.

"I'm just worried about playing against Pittsburgh and focusing on this week and getting better," Walker said Wednesday after practice at the Titans' facility. "That's something I can't worry about. It happened a year and a half ago. I'm still going to pursue what i'm doing wtih MADD and stay on a steady track."

Walker started working with Mothers Against Druck Driving after a relative was killed by a drunk driver in New Orleans five hours after Walker played in the Super Bowl.

Smith's attorney declined to comment. Titans spokesman Robbie Bohren told Channel 4 News the team was aware of the lawsuit and would not be issuing a statement.
