Test results show Bulluck tore his left ACL in the third quarter of their 27-24 overtime victory over Miami on Sunday. That might have been Bulluck's final game with the franchise that drafted him in 2000. The Titans were placing him on injured reserve Monday, and Bulluck will have surgery within two weeks. Bulluck was AFC defensive player of the week after intercepting two passes in a win against St. Louis on Dec. 13.
A 10-year veteran, Bulluck is the franchise's top tackler this season in the final year of his contract. He made his 127th consecutive start against Miami, second only to only London Fletcher of Washington among linebackers. He led the team in tackles last season and had a team-high 113 tackles. Middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch will replace Bulluck calling the defensive play calls and wearing the helmet communication device as he did once Bulluck was injured against Miami. Losing Bulluck hurts most with the San Diego Chargers visiting Friday night in a must-win for the Titans to keep their playoff hopes alive for the final week of the regular season.
