Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch sustained an embarrassing injury in Week 3. Tulloch was celebrating a sack when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season. But the veteran linebacker says he has no regrets about how the injury occurred, saying that he’d do it again if given the opportunity, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
“If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen,” Tulloch said, “Just a matter of time.” So it sounds like he doesn’t really blame the injury so much on the fact that he chose to celebrate. He said that he’s played a “long time” in the NFL and that players are simply “susceptible to this kind of injury when you go out there and play.”

“I’ve lost family members that I was able to get over. I don’t think I’ll ever get over this,” he said. “It makes me emotional all of the time. I’m one of those guys, I don’t take stuff for granted most of the time. And it really hit me more after his death that this life that we go about every day like it’s nothing, it’s really not something to play with.”
Moss and Taylor both grew up in the same area in Miami, but it wasn’t until they became teammates in Washington that they formed a bond that was more family than friend. And while Taylor was known to be guarded with the media, behind the scenes he wasn’t afraid to show emotion.
