    While traditional fullbacks don’t seem to be growing off trees anymore, they haven’t changed into 6-5, 260-pounders either.

    But whether he’s the fullback or tight end prototype, John Phillips has been called upon to fill in as the team’s lead blocker on running downs as Tony Fiammetta has been out and will likely miss his second straight game Thursday against the Dolphins, still suffering from an illness with concussion-like symptoms.

    That means Phillips will be called upon again. And even he admits it’s not ideal considering his taller frame than traditional fullbacks...
