Okudah (lower leg) could be dealing with a significant injury, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. "We know obviously it's somewhere around the ankle, could be Achilles," head coach Dan Campbell said after Sunday's loss to San Francisco.
Okudah suffered a non-contact injury to his lower left leg Sunday. While he was able to walk off the field with some assistance from teammates, Okudah was then carted up the tunnel and into the locker room. If the 2020 first-round pick is forced to miss any time, the Lions likely will turn to 2021 third-round pick Ifeatu Melifonwu to handle the starting role at cornerback opposite Amani Oruwariye.
