Detroit Lions Young Cornerback Downgraded To Questionable

The Detroit Lions will play the most important game in recent memory for the franchise in Week 18 when they take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football, and if the Seahawks lose earlier in the day, this one will be win and in for both teams regarding the final spot in the NFC playoffs.

While Detroit got good news on their young safety DeShon Elliot earlier in the day, they have also downgraded young cornerback Jeff Okudah to questionable, and if he does indeed miss this matchup, it will make it much harder for the young, hungry Lions to slow down back-to-back NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers.

He suffered an elbow injury earlier today, and while it likely wouldn't keep him out for the playoffs if they were to make it, he is in jeopardy of missing this crucial matchup, so Lions fans will be hoping that he can make it back for this game ahead of a potential playoff run.
