Linebacker Stephen Tulloch is not likely to win this battle. He would love to be back on the field when the Lions start mandatory minicamp in June but from the sound of it, the coaching staff is going to keep him out until training camp.

“I feel good,” said Tulloch, who is nursing tendinitis in his left knee. “I will miss a couple of OTAs but I will be ready. I’ve never missed a game in my career. I know what it takes to take care of my body. I know what I need to do to get right and be able to give 100 percent.”

The Lions made a five-year, $25.5 million commitment to Tulloch in March, so they want to make sure his streak of 96 straight games played continues. Coach Jim Schwartz estimated on Monday that Tulloch could be out three to four weeks.
