Knee injury of Lions’ Stephen Tulloch worse than originally believed?

Stephen Tulloch is one of the best middle linebackers in the league, especially in Detroit’s wide nine scheme, and was paid accordingly this offseason, signing a 5 year, 25 million dollar deal. However, there are now injury concerns with Tulloch. Tulloch has yet to practice in OTAs with a knee injury and while it was originally viewed as minor, Head Coach Jim Schwartz now says he’ll miss the rest of OTAs and possibly June minicamps with knee tendinitis. Tulloch insists his injury is minor, but we may differ in the definition of minor as he recently had an injection into the knee and reportedly cannot put any weight on it. He should be fine for Training Camp and onward, but these types of things can linger so it’s something to keep an eye on.
