The Lions drafted defensive end Julian Okwara in the third round this year with the hope that he’d be a contributor to their defense.

Okwara’s contributions to this point in his rookie year have been limited and it will be some time before he’ll have a chance to make a bigger splash. The Lions announced on Wednesday that Okwara has been placed on injured reserve.

Okwara played 30 defensive snaps in his four appearances and hurt his leg against the Jaguars.
