Lions' Romeo Okwara: Records sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okwara posted four tackles (three solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Okwara has been a solid last minute pickup for Detroit. After joining the team just prior to week one, he's now got five sacks through six games played. He'll look to continue his strong play in Week 9, when the Lions face off against the Vikings.

Romeo Okwara: Waived by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okwara was waived by the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of Giants.com reports.

Okwara was waived in order to make room for former Bears defensive tackle John Jenkins on the roster. Okwara, an undrafted rookie free agent from 2016, missed the majority of last season due to a knee injury. However, he does boast starting experience and could find a new home elsewhere in the league in the near future.

Giants' Romeo Okwara: Knee injury mars 2017 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okwara made three tackles (one solo) in six games during the 2017 regular season.

Okwara's sophomore campaign was hindered by a knee sprain that left him sidelined for a solid chunk of the season, as he ultimately missed 10 games before returning for the finale against Washington. The reserve defensive end will be on the last year of his rookie contract in 2018 and should once again provide depth behind Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Giants' Romeo Okwara: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants activated Okwara from injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Okwara is thus in line to play in the Giants' final two games of the season after the team designated the defensive end as one of two players eligible to return from IR. The 22-year-old, who was shut down in mid-October after suffering a knee sprain during practice, had collected three tackles in five games. He'll likely work in a rotational role at defensive end behind starters Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul.
