Bucs Sign Fullback Help; Spencer Larsen ReturnsSeptember 10th, 2013
Tight end Tom Crabtree got hurt lining up as a fullback in preseason. Against the Jets, tight end Nate Byham proved he can’t play fullback. And it’s obvious the New Schiano Order doesn’t think Peyton Hillis can play the position effectively.
Also, there’s no word on when starting fullback Erik Lorig can return to action after injuring his calf in July.
Today, the Bucs re-signed veteran fullback Spencer Larsen, who was cut from the Bucs midway through the preseason. He was on the Patriots last year and spent years in Denver. Rookie defensive tackle Chris Jones was waived.
It’ll be interesting to see if Larsen gets a shot Sunday.
