  Cowboys | Two players to compete for one roster spot    Thu Jun 27, 02:37 PM

Dallas Cowboys FB Lawrence Vickers and TE Dante Rosario are expected to compete for one roster spot during training camp because the team is considering phasing out the fullback position in order to use more two tight end sets. Rosario could have an edge because of his special teams play as well as his lower salary.

Footballguys view: If Vickers gets bounced from the roster there could be a small market for his services. There's reportedly five teams (Dolphins, Ravens, Giants, Chiefs, Texans) interested in free agent fullback Vonta Leach. The teams that don't get Leach could take a look at the 'V' back on the open market.

  Cowboys | Likely to focus on running game in Week 1     Wed Sep 5, 11:16 AM

The Dallas Cowboys will likely spend the bulk of their Week 1 game in a traditional two-receiver, two-running back formation and let RB DeMarco Murray and FB Lawrence Vickers be the focal point of the offense in the expected absence of TE Jason Witten (spleen).

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said FB Lawrence Vickers (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Week 12. Vickers was not able to practice at all this week because of a hamstring injury.

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said the status of FB Lawrence Vickers (hamstring) for Week 12 won't be known until the team returns to practice next week.

Footballguys view: The Texans should be an even more run heavy team with Matt Leinart at QB. Having the 'V-back' in the backfield to help blast open holes for Arian Foster and Ben Tate would help.

He needs to continue to get a week or two under his belt where he continues to come out of the game healthy. He's been playing nicked up for us, but there's a lot of guys doing that.'
