Celebrate at your own risk, NFL players.

Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL while celebrating a sack of Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter of a 19-7 Lions win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Tulloch was attempting Rodgers’ “Discount Double Check” move.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell would not speculate Monday about who will replace Tulloch, though linebacker DeAndre Levy finished the game in Tulloch’s absence.
