Cowboys switch another to fullback
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Isaiah Greenhouse is a linebacker by trade, but the Cowboys moved him to fullback on Tuesday.
“I’ve never done it in a game situation, but I was on the practice squad with Houston last year and did a little bit of it there,” Greenhouse said. “That’s pretty much the only experience I have at the position.”
Greenhouse said backup quarterback Jon Kitna asked him if he ever played fullback and once he said yes the coaches switched his position. He is the second player the Cowboys have moved to fullback after tight end Jason Pociask switched earlier in camp. Chris Gronkowski and Shaun Chapas are the only true fullbacks on the roster.
“It’s wherever I can help the team out the most,” Greenhouse said. “If they feel I can be the most productive at the fullback position why not give it a shot?”
