Denver rookie Spencer Larsen is making history today.
Larsen is playing because of injuries. With Denver fullback Peyton Hillis playing tailback because of several injuries at the position, Larsen slid over to the fullback position. With middle linebacker Nate Webster out, Larsen is now playing there. The Broncos have bounced Larsen from fullback and middle linebacker since before training camp but Sunday's development is extremely noteworthy.
He is the first Denver player ever to start both ways in the game and the first NFL player since Baltimore's Orlando Brown started both ways five years ago.
