Cornerback Jeff Okudah left Sunday’s game early in the fourth quarter. The Lions fear Okudah has an Achilles injury, coach Dan Campbell said via Kyle Meinke of the Detroit News.

Okudah will undergo further testing Monday to determine the severity.

Okudah went to the training room after a brief stop on the sideline, and the team announced a foot injury. He finished with four tackles and a pass breakup and got an earful from Lions defensive backs coach Aubrey Pleasant on the sideline after a 79-yard touchdown by 49ers wideout Deebo Samuel.

Okudah, the third overall choice in 2020, played only nine games with six starts as a rookie before season-ending groin surgery in December.

  1. If so, he will officially be in bust territory. He is already flirting with that title. DC almost sent him to his room during the game….thought it was going to come to blows.

  2. I liked seeing coach Aubrey Pleasant laying into him. Looked like some tough love and making sure that mistake was a learning experience. They had a shot of the Pleasant talking to a group of DBs a couple minutes later and everything was cool.

  3. Had the Lions not foolishly dismissed Patricia, a defensive guru, Okudah would be used properly. Instead, he’s “coached” by these High School Harrys that Bite Knee-Caps

    The lions would be well on their way to a number 1 pick with Patricia. Jarrad Davis said he was glad and relieved to be on the Jets because their defense caters to his play unlike Matt’s
