Lions' Julian Okwara: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okwara was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Okwara has not taken the field since Week 6, as he has been nursing an undisclosed injury. Primarily a reserve and special teams contributor, the defensive end should not be expected to see a ton of action Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Lions' Julian Okwara: Won't play versus Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okwara (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Packers.

The rookie third-rounder suited up in Week 1 against the Bears, logging 18 total snaps but failing to record a tackle. He's a healthy scratch Sunday and he'll look to get back into the lineup in Week 3 against the Cardinals.

Lions' Julian Okwara: Joins brother in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions selected Okwara in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 67th overall.

Julian's brother Romeo was already on the Lions, but the younger Okwara is the better prospect of the two. At 6-foot-4, 252 pounds out of Notre Dame, Okwara is likely a plus athlete as an edge rusher and possesses standout reach thanks to 34 and 3/8-inch arms. On a defense short on edge disruptors, Okwara could play an important role right away for the Lions.
