Lions LB Stephen Tulloch Says Ex-Titans Teammate Took Cheap Shot
Lions middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch and Titans guard Leroy Harris go way back. They were teammates at North Carolina State and with the Titans. So imagine Tulloch's surprise when Harris dove at his knees after a play was blown dead Sunday.
"I've been knowing Leroy for 10 years," Tulloch said. "Of all the people to come at me like that. But it's football. There are no friends on the field. I understand that, but keep it between the whistles."
Tulloch earned a 15-yard personal foul penalty retaliating against Harris, which set up a field goal for the Titans. Tulloch offered no apologies Monday.
"The official blew the play (dead) and he fell at my knees; I have a family to feed, man," Tulloch said. "I play the game clean and I want everybody else to play the game clean. Play within the whistle. When the whistle blows and somebody comes at you, you need to protect yourself at all cost."
