Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press that Stephen Tulloch's season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament won't stop him from dancing after he scores a touchdown.

Tulloch tore his ACL while celebrating a first-quarter sack in Sunday's victory over the Green Bay Packers.

From the Detroit Free Press:

"Hell no," Fauria said when asked if his dancing days are done. "And ruin all my marketing opportunities?"

He did a Miley Cyrus-like gyration after his first career touchdown, performed the "Gas Pedal" after another, and broke out the boy band 'N Sync's "Bye, Bye, Bye" dance after a third in response to a skit on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Fauria has not scored a touchdown this season but said he has something good planned for his first of 2014. This season he has three catches for 49 yards.
