Detroit Lions Corey Fuller biggest fan of Bears Kyle Fuller


Corey Fuller, the Lions wide receiver, likes to watch his brothers play football on television in the privacy of his own home.

“I get a little excited so I save the embarrassment and stay at the house,’’ Fuller said.

Since Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller is his younger brother, Corey has had plenty to get excited about. The Bears rookie cornerback has three interceptions in his last two games — two in the Bears’ win over the 49ers and one in the win over the Jets on Monday night.

“I’m not surprised, I’ll say that,’’ Corey Fuller said “Kyle he’s always been, he’s very smart, he prepares very well, going into it I expect the same thing from Kyle. When I see the ball going his way. I know it’s going to be hard to compete against him.’’

The two brothers will meet when the Bears play at Ford Field on Thanksgiving.

Corey Fuller had his first NFL reception — a 52-yarder — on Sunday in the win over the Packers.

“How many people get to say they can play their brother in the NFL on Thanksgiving. My mom and dad are definitely coming, my youngest brother has a game that Friday,'' Corey Fuller said.

Kendall Fuller is a cornerback at Virginia Tech where all the Fuller brothers played. The oldest, Vincent, also played in the NFL, mostly with the Tennessee Titans.

Corey said his parents try to get to two games every weekend.

Martin Mayhew could have saved them some travel miles by drafting Kyle Fuller who went 14th to the Bears. But instead the Lions drafted tight end Eric Ebron at No. 10.
