Jeff Okudah is reportedly out for the season.

ESPN reports Monday morning (September 13) that the Detroit Lions cornerback's ruptured Achilles tendon will bar him from playing the rest of the season, according to an unnamed source. The injury happened during the Lions game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday (September 12). Okudah limped from the field and was assisted to the locker room following the injury.

"I would say for Jeff, it was an up and down game," Coach Dan Campbell said, according to ESPN. "He flashes on a few plays, you're like, 'Wow. OK there he is'. And then next thing you know, something happens that's just — I don't want to make excuses, but at the same time he's in year two. He made some young errors is what he did." ESPN also noted that Okudah previously reflected on past obstacles and appreciated that “every time that I've fallen, I've been able to get back up."

Neither Okudah nor the Detroit Lions have commented on the cornerback’s ability to play this season, but Okudah said in a tweet on Monday morning with a praying hands emoji: “My faith in God’s plan is unwavering… The Marathon Continues.“
