News: Tulloch feels strong at Lions camp after missing most of 2014 with a torn ACL in his left knee, Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News reports.
Impact: Tulloch had played in 131 consecutive games to start his career before last season's season-ending injury. In his last full season, 2013, Tulloch notched 135 tackles with 3.5 sacks and an interception. He tallied 20 tackles and two sacks in less than three games of work in 2014. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said that he is excited by the experience Tulloch and weakside linebacker DeAndre Levy bring to the middle of Detroit's defense. Tahir Whitehead, who manned the middle after Tulloch went down in 2014, currently sits atop the depth chart as the Lions' starting strongside linebacker.
