Detroit Lions outside linebacker Romeo Okwara left Sunday’s game with an apparent Achilles injury.

Coach Dan Campbell said it “doesn’t look good at all” following the Lions’ 24-14 loss to the host Chicago Bears.

Okwara, 26, will undergo further tests to determine if his left Achilles is torn, which would end his 2021 season.

Okwara left the field with about two minutes remaining in the first quarter and did not return.

The sixth-year pass rusher entered Week 4 with six tackles, two quarterback hits and one sack in three September games. He has 145 tackles and 21 sacks in 70 games (31 starts) with the New York Giants (2016-17) and Lions.
