Washington Commanders defensive end Efe Obada underwent surgery to repair multiple leg fractures Sunday night, hours after being carted off the field in a loss to the New York Giants, The Athletic reported Monday.

Obada suffered the injury in the first quarter of Washington's 31-19 defeat in Landover, Md.

Obada, 31, was playing in just his fifth game of the season after spending time on injured reserve with a knee injury. He had two tackles. He'll be a free agent after the season.

Obada recorded 24 tackles and four sacks in 17 games (one start) last season.

He has totaled 88 tackles, 15 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble in 69 career games (three starts) with the Carolina Panthers (2018-20), Buffalo Bills (2021) and Commanders.
