Lions' Jeff Okudah: Healthy ahead of training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (groin) has been given a clean bill of health, putting him on track to fully participate in training camp, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Okudah has already full recovered from December groin/core-muscle surgery. The No. 3 overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, Okudah was limited to just nine games in his rookie season due to a number of injuries, and he even missed a portion of last year's training camp. As Okudah works to learn defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn's new system and take a step forward Year 2, participating in training camp at full health could benefit the 22-year-old significantly.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Nearing full recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (groin) said earlier this month that he's nearing a full recovery from surgery and no longer feels pain in his leg, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. "It just feels like I have a different level that I wasn't able to kind of tap into last year," Okudah said. "But I feel like this year just kind of moving around now and not having that pain in my groin anymore, it just feels like a different level."

The No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft allegedly spent his rookie season playing through a groin injury he suffered during his final season at Ohio State, in addition to a hamstring injury that cost him both the final days of training camp and the 2020 regular-season opener. After struggling to perform effectively much of the year, Okudah was eventually shut down in December, and he underwent groin surgery shortly thereafter. While he'll have to learn a new system under new defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn in advance of the 2021 campaign, the cornerback at least appears as if he'll be entering training camp fully healthy this time around.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (groin) recently underwent surgery and is already moving around well, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Okudah underwent season-ending surgery shortly after suffering a groin injury Week 11, and the rookie cornerback appears to be recovering well. Given the timing of his procedure, Okudah is expected to be a full participant in the Lions' offseason training program. The 21-year-old posted 47 tackles and one interception through 11 games in 2020.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Undergoes season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (groin) announced via his personal Twitter that he recently underwent successful core muscle surgery.

The rookie was placed on injured reserve Monday with a groin injury and has now undergone his season-ending surgery. Okudah finishes his first NFL season with 47 tackles and an interception and will now begin his rehab process.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Unavailable against Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Packers.

Okudah will miss a third straight game. He didn't practice all week, either, so it's tough to get a grasp on his status for next week's clash against Tennessee. The rookie has struggled at times this season, so it won't be a major loss for the Lions' secondary. Darryl Roberts should see the largest increase in usage as a result.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Still unable to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (groin) did not participate during Thursday's practice session, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The rookie No. 3 overall draft choice has been unavailable for eight consecutive practice sessions, having initially sustained his groin injury Nov. 22 against Carolina. If Okudah is in fact forced into a third straight game absence, it would present an especially daunting challenge for the Lions' secondary given a Week 14 matchup against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Won't play Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Continues to miss practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday.

Okudah hasn't been able to practice since sustaining his shoulder injury in Week 11. The rookie third-overall pick will have to heal up in a hurry in order to play against the Bears come Sunday.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Won't suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Listed as DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Okudah suffered this injury during Sunday's loss to the Panthers. It's discouraging that he's starting the week as a DNP, but he'll have two more practices to upgrade his status. Mike Ford (concussion) also missed Monday's practice, so Desmond Trufant, Justin Coleman and Amani Oruwariye are the only healthy cornerbacks on Detroit's roster.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Picks up shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah exited Sunday's game against the Panthers with a shoulder injury.

The rookie first-round pick had seven tackles (five solo) before leaving the game during the fourth quarter. Okudah will have a short week to recover before Thursday's Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Texans.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Upgraded Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

November 11, 2020 10:48 PM
Lions' Jeff Okudah: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Questionable to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (ankle) has been listed as questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Vikings.

The No. 3 overall choice from April's draft was forced to sit out Week 1 because of a hamstring issue, but he's otherwise been available for every game of his rookie campaign. Okudah has played more than 90 percent of the defensive workload in all but one of his six outings, surrendering just one touchdown in coverage while also forcing one interception. If he can't make it Sunday, Mike Ford may be forced into a late-game role with the Lions trailing Minnesota by multiple possessions.

Lions' Jeff Okudah: Back at full speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 13, 2020 11:48 AM
Lions' Jeff Okudah: Out for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 12, 2020 01:16 AM
Lions' Jeff Okudah: Questionable for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okudah (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Okudah wasn't listed on Detroit's injury report to begin the week, but he's been limited in back-to-back practices since popping up with a hamstring issue Thursday. If the No. 3 overall pick in April's draft is limited or forced to sit out the season opener, Justin Coleman would stand to handle increased snaps opposite Desmond Trufant.
