The 21-year-old posted 47 tackles and one interception through 11 games in 2020.

Okudah (groin) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Okudah will undergo season-ending surgery at some point this week and won't return this season. He should be back to 100 percent for the 2021 campaign, as he looks to build off an uninspiring rookie year. Through nine games this year, Okudah posted 47 tackles (41 solo), two pass breakups and an interception, and he let up 594 yards (11.2 yards per target) and two touchdowns in coverage.
Okudah will undergo season-ending groin surgery next week, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Okudah missed last week's game against the Bears with shoulder and groin injuries, and he'll now be shut down for the season. The 2020 third-overall pick is expected to be 100 percent for the 2021 season. Okudah will finish his rookie season with 47 tackles (41 solo), two pass breakups and an interception over nine games. He struggled a bit in coverage, however, allowing 594 yards (11.2 yards per target) and two touchdowns this year. Expect him to be placed on injured reserve in the near future.
Okudah (shoulder/groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears. Okudah was unable to practice at all this week and has tacked on a groin injury in addition to the shoulder problem that has been bothering him since Week 11. Mike Ford should start in Okudah's spot opposite Justin Coleman, and Amani Oruwariye is the only other healthy cornerback left on Detroit's roster.
