“That’s Not A Great Situation”August 20th, 2013
Starting fullback Erik Lorig is walking around with one foot in a boot and hasn’t done a lot on the field this summer.
Another veteran fullback on the Bucs roster, Spencer Larsen, practiced today but is banged up and isn’t “full go,” per Schiano.
Veratile Brian Leonard? He has played very little fullback since he was 15 pounds heavier in college and blocked for Rutgers legend Ray Rice, so Leonard told Joe today.
All of the above is a big reason Bucs fans saw Tom Crabtree and other tight ends in the backfield last week. Greg Schiano said that’s not the goal.
“That’s not a great situation right now,” Schiano said today of the fullback position.
Crabtree told Joe he lined up at fullback at times in Green Bay, so it’s not a new position for him.
Joe’s unsure how the Bucs answer their fullback questions. If Lorig isn’t healthy, Larsen really has a shot to make the team if he can get on the field and impress in Miami on Saturday.
