After tearing his ACL when jumping up and down during a sack celebration on Sunday, Detroit Lions lineback Stephen Tulloch was asked if he had any regrets.

Hell, no," Tulloch answered to the Detroit Free Press, via Michael David Smith of NBC's Pro Football Talk.

“I’d do it again, brother. You do it every time. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen. Just a matter of time,” Tulloch said.

This is the first major injury of Tulloch's NFL career - an injury that won't alter his previous approach to the game he loves.

“I’ve played a long time in this league and I understand you’re susceptible to this kind of injury when you go out there and play,” Tulloch said. “Nine years without missing a game is kind of crazy, but like I said I’m positive because I believe in my hard work, I believe in my training and what I do in the off-season and how I approach things, so I know I’ll be back even better than before.”
