Greenhouse Moving From LB To Fullback

The Cowboys are obviously looking for more answers at the fullback, making another position switch on Tuesday to accommodate the position.

Linebacker Isaiah Greenhouse, who is stuck in the middle of a crowded middle linebacker spot, is expected to switch over to fullback for Tuesday's practice.

It's not the first time in camp the Cowboys have added a player to fullback, having moved tight end Jason Pociask just a few days into camp at San Antonio.

That now makes four fullbacks on the roster, along with last year's starter Chris Gronkowski and seventh-round pick Shaun Chapas.

Actually, history suggests this could be a good thing for Greenhouse. The Cowboys have had some success with training camp switches from linebacker to fullback. In 1999, the club moved Robert Thomas to the offense and he became a three-year starter, even leading the way for Emmitt Smith's NFL record-breaking run in 2002.

The Cowboys also moved Oliver Hoyte from linebacker to fullback in 2006 and he became a starter in the offense.
