Okwara took to Instagram and offered up an optimistic post where he also thanked the fans for the outpouring of well-wishes after his injury in Week 4.

Okwara posted with the comment,

“Getting surgery in a couple days… Hate that my season was cut short and I can’t be out there with my teammates, but I’ll be back better than ever.. Big thanks to everyone that reached out.”
