Jeff Okudah, the phenom of Nigerian descent, has torn his achilles in the first official game of the season. He was the third overall pick in last year’s NFL.


Okudah had to be helped off the field after the injury. MRIs have today confirmed that Detroit will be without Okudah for the remainder of the season, as he ruptured his achilles.
