The Titans sound like they still have an interest in bringing back Keith Bulluck, but they are not going to jump the gun on it before they are sure he can come back from the ACL injury he suffered back last December:
Titans coach Jeff Fisher says the team hasn’t closed the door on re-signing free-agent linebacker Keith Bulluck, who still is recovering from a torn ACL suffered Dec. 20.
Bulluck, 33, had started 127 consecutive games for Tennessee before the injury.
“We’d love to see if there is an opportunity where Keith would be able to finish his career here,” Fisher told The Tennessean. “But it is very complicated, as you know. You have an unrestricted free agent and you have an ACL rehab.
“He is not ready to play now, and he is not ready to pass a physical. When that time comes we’ll deal with it. I am going to make an assumption that he is going to recover 100 percent and be able to play again at the same level he was playing when the injury occurred.
“Hypothetically, if Keith was fine for the start of training camp and able and to play in the preseason games and is 100 percent and we were able to get him under contract, he’s a starter, yeah. That is the best-case scenario, but it’s not going to be a realistic scenario just from the timing standpoint as you deal with the ACL.”
