Lions' Joseph Fauria says he'll keep dancing despite Tulloch's injury

Tuesday September 23rd, 2014

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.
