 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -The Detroit Lions will put second-year safety Daniel Bullocks on injured reserve after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.
Bullocks was to start at free safety this season after leading all NFC rookie defensive backs with 70 tackles last season. His right knee buckled during a non-contact play Saturday in the second quarter of the Lions' 37-10 loss at Indianapolis.
Lions coach Rod Marinelli said Monday he didn't know when Bullocks will have surgery, because doctors must wait for the swelling to go down.
``He's a heck of a player,'' Marinelli said. ``But you move on. The NFL is all about that.''
Sixth-year safety Idrees Bashir and rookie Gerald Alexander will compete for the starting spot.
Marinelli also said running back Kevin Jones, who has not played since breaking his foot last season, will be re-evaluated Thursday.
Several other Lions players continue to deal with injuries. Among those listed as day-to-day are defensive tackle Cory Redding, running backs Tatum Bell and Brian Calhoun, guard Damien Woody, defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, defensive end Dewayne White, wide receiver Mike Furrey, quarterback Jon Kitna and cornerback Travis Fisher.
