  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Replaced in 2023

    Okudah finished 2023 with 44 tackles (34 solo) and three pass defenses in 13 appearances.

    After back-to-back disappointing seasons to start his career, Okudah made an impact on the Lions' defense in 2022, totaling 73 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble. However, he was traded to Atlanta last offseason and carved out a starting role, posting 41 tackles from Weeks 4 to 13. However, he was ultimately replaced by Clark Phillips down the stretch. The Falcons declined the fifth-year team option for 2024 on Okudah's rookie deal, so the cornerback will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Fully recovered

    Okudah (ankle) was a full participant during practice Wednesday, Amna Subhan of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Okudah logged a limited practice Friday before being ruled out for last Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. However, with Week 15 prep underway, the Ohio State product was a full go and should suit up for this Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.

  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Inactive Sunday

    Okudah (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Okudah missed Thursday's practice, participated on a limited basis Friday and was listed as questionable going into Sunday. The starting right cornerback has 41 tackles and three passes defensed this season. Mike Hughes, Dee Alford and Clark Phillips could be in line to see more playing time in Okudah's absence.

  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Chance to play Week 14

    Okudah (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

    Okudah could be trending in the right direction to suit up Sunday, as he went from not participating in Thursday's practice to a limited session Friday. If the 2020 first-round pick is unable to play in Week 14, both Dee Alford and Clark Phillips would likely see increased work in Atlanta's secondary.

  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Goes backward

    Okudah (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Amna Subhan of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Okudah was limited during Wednesday's practice so this is a step in the wrong direction for the Ohio State product. With A.J. Terrell still in concussion protocols, the Falcons could potentially be missing both of their starting corners for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers. Okudah will work to get back on the field Friday to increase his chances of playing in the contest.

  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Logs season-high tackles

    Okudah registered eight tackles (seven solo) in the Falcons' 24-15 win over the Saints on Sunday.

    Okudah's eight tackles were good for the second most on the team and were also a new single-game season high for the 24-year-old. The 2020 first-round pick now has 36 tackles (26 solo) on the season and will look to add to that against the Jets in Week 13.

  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Season-high six tackles

    Okudah recorded six tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 21-19 win over the Texans.

    Okudah, who was traded to Atlanta by Detroit this offseason, missed the first two games of the season due to a foot injury. He was cleared to take the field in Week 3 versus his former team, but he played just 10 defensive snaps. Okudah's role has increased in each game since, and he played all 58 defensive snaps versus Houston on Sunday. Now that he's 100 percent, it's safe to assume Okudah will continue to operate as the starting cornerback opposite A.J. Terrell.

  • Falcons' Jeff Okudah: Will make season debut Sunday

    Okudah (foot) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Lions, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Okudah missed the first two games of the campaign due to a foot injury that popped up during training camp. He was a full participant at each practice of Week 3 prep, so it's not surprising to see him cleared, even though he was listed as questionable. Okudah will make his season debut against his former team, but his role may be limited as he works his way back to game speed.
