Bullocks clears waivers
ALLEN PARK Injured safety Daniel Bullocks cleared waivers late Thursday afternoon and was placed on the Reserve/Injured list which means hes out for the season.
Because he is not vested hes been in the league less than four years the Lions were not able to just place him on injured reserve because he would have counted against the 80-man roster.
During the 2007 preseason he tore his anterior cruciate ligament and the surgery ended his season.
Last year he bounced back with a career-high 121 tackles and played in all 16 games, starting 15 of them. However, he didnt seem to have the same zip in his step as before the surgery.
That same knee has bothered him in the offseason. A week into camp he went to Birmingham, Ala., to see Dr. James Andrews, his surgeon. He had not practiced since then and is expected to have more surgery.
He's in the final year of his contract with the Lions.
