  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Three tackles in preseason opener

    Okudah totaled three tackles during Friday's preseason opener against Atlanta. While Okudah gave up a first down on third-and-eight against backup-caliber wideout KhaDarel Hodge, he escaped the game healthy and has officially begun the process of shaking off the rust after a 334-day layoff from game action. Look for the Lions to continue to assess the 2020 No. 3 overall pick this preseason as Detroit figures out its cornerback rotation in advance of Week 1.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Participating in training camp

    Okudah (Achilles) was close to a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Roughly 11 months since rupturing his Achilles, Okudah took first-team reps during the only full-team period of the opening day of training camp. Head coach Dan Campbell said afterward that the plan is for Okudah to practice without restrictions for the rest of the summer. If he can finally avoid the injury bug, the Ohio State product should have a good shot at sticking with the starting defense come Week 1, though Will Harris also took first-team reps opposite Amani Oruwariye at cornerback Wednesday and could be in the mix as well.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Avoids PUP list

    Okudah (Achilles) was not placed on the PUP list in advance of training camp, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Okudah was a limited participant in offseason workouts as he bounces back from a torn Achilles suffered during the 2021 season opener. However, he has reportedly progressed well in his recovery throughout the spring, and it seems the 23-year-old will be involved in training camp once most veterans report to Detroit on Wednesday.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Expected to be ready for training camp

    Okudah is progressing well in his recovery from an Achilles injury, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Okudah is still working his way back from the injury, which he suffered in Week 1 of the 2021 season, but head coach Dan Campbell told Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com that he feels the cornerback will "be ready" to go full throttle at training camp. Regardless of his immediate availability at camp, Okudah appears to be on the right track to be available for the start of the 2022 regular season.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Limited at OTAs

    Okudah (Achilles) took part in individual drills during Thursday's OTAs, but Lions head coach Dan Campbell said it's "hard to put a timeline" on when the cornerback will be ready for full-team activities, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports. Okudah tore his Achilles during the first game of the 2021 campaign and was sidelined for the remainder of the season. However, it appears he's progressing well throughout rehab and could potentially be ready for the start of the regular season. Regardless, Detroit is expected to be cautious with its 2020 first-round pick after he's appeared in just 10 games across his first two years in the NFL.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Lands on IR

    The Lions placed Okudah (Achilles) on injured reserve Monday. As expected, Okudah lands on IR after rupturing his Achilles in the second half of the season opener. Rookie third-round pick Ifeatu Melifonwu will likely step into the starting role while the 2020 first-round pick spends the rest of the season and upcoming offseason recovering from surgery.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Lands on IR

    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.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Won't play Week 13

    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.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Won't suit up Thursday

    Okudah (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Texans, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Okudah missed the entire week of practice after suffering a shoulder injury in this past Sunday's loss to the Panthers.The third-overall pick's usage has declined recently, as he hasn't played more than 50 percent of the snaps on defense since Week 8. Desmond Trufant, Justin Coleman and Amani Oruwariye (back), who is considered questionable, are expected to start Thursday's game at cornerback.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Picks up shoulder injury

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Upgraded Thursday

    Okudah (ankle/groin) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Okudah was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice with two separate injuries, but he seems on track for Sunday's game against the Football Team. The rookie from Ohio State has played at least half of the team's defensive snaps every game he's been healthy, so expect him to do so again in Week 10 now that he's back to full practice participation.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Okudah (ankle/groin) was limited in practice Wednesday. Okudah is dealing with two separate injuries stemming from Sunday's loss to the Vikings. The rookie has played in nearly two-thirds of Detroit's defensive snaps this season so if he is ruled out, look for Amani Oruwariye and Desmond Trufant to carry the load against Washington on Sunday.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Back at full speed

    Okudah (hamstring) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Okudah wasn't ready to make his NFL debut in Week 1, but the third-overall pick appears good to go this Sunday against the Packers. The 21-year-old has a tough task ahead after Aaron Rodgers torched Minnesota's young secondary in the season opener, so this will be a good gauge of where the rookie stands. His responsibilities could be heightened if Desmond Trufant (hamstring) can't go after starting the practice week as a nonparticipant.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Out for Week 1

    Okudah (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Raiders. Okudah was not expected to play in Sunday's season opener, and that will indeed be the case. Okudah, the third pick in this year's draft, was listed as questionable for Week 1, so he should have a chance to make his debut in the Lions' Week 2 matchup with the Packers.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Trending toward Week 1 absence

    Okudah (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, isn't expected to be available Week 1, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After he was absent from the Lions' first injury report of the week Wednesday, the No. 3 overall pick was limited in the team's subsequent two sessions by the hamstring issue. The Lions apparently aren't inclined to take any chances with the cornerback, whose NFL debut looks like it will have to wait until Sept. 20 in Green Bay. Okudah is expected to begin his career in a depth role, as Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com notes that Desmond Trufant and Amani Oruwariye both locked down starting jobs coming out of training camp.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Sidelined at practice

    Okudah (hamstring) was a limited participant for Thursday's practice. It's certainly negative news that Okudah popped up on the injury report after he wasn't listed Wednesday. However, it's possible the Lions could be getting the rookie out of Ohio State some extra rest ahead of Week 1's game against Chicago. In any event, if he's forced to miss Sunday's game, Justin Coleman would be in line for the bulk of cornerback reps opposite Desmond Trufant.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Detroit bound

    The Lions selected Okudah in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, third overall. Okudah is the latest in a long line of stellar cornerbacks to come out of Ohio State. A rangy defender with sticky coverage skills, Okudah checks in at 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds. He worked as an outside cornerback during his time with the Buckeyes and profiles as a shutdown corner at the next level. Okudah possesses physicality to jam receivers at the line and the instincts to stick with receivers down the field. With Darius Slay being dealt this offseason, cornerback was a major need for the Lions and Okudah more than fills that need. He is the NFL's highest drafted cornerback since Shawn Springs (also No. 3 overall) in 1997.
