Bucs released FB Spencer Larsen.

Larsen is no longer needed with Erik Lorig (calf) expected to return this week. The Bucs have promoted CB Deveron Carr from the practice squad to replace him on the active roster.

Bucs re-signed FB Spencer Larsen.

Rookie DT Chris Jones was waived in a corresponding roster move. FB Erik Lorig missed Week 1 with a calf injury, and this is an indication he's in danger of missing Week 2. The No. 198 pick of April's draft (by the Texans), Jones will likely be stashed on the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Buccaneers signed FB Spencer Larsen, formerly of the Patriots.

Larsen, 29, was cut by the Patriots in March. He'll compete with Erik Lorig for fullback duties and try to contribute on special teams.

Free agent FB Spencer Larsen is visiting the Bills.

Larsen is a potential replacement for free agent Corey McIntyre, though the Bills reportedly want McIntyre back. Maybe this will drive McIntyre's price down. Larsen missed all of 2012 with an undisclosed injury.

Patriots released FB Spencer Larsen and waived OT Kyle Hix.

Larsen missed the entire 2012 season with an undisclosed injury, and he was due just a $750,000 base salary in 2013. Hix was waived/injured each of the last two seasons.

Patriots placed FB Spencer Larsen (undisclosed) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The versatile Larsen had a good shot at a roster spot thanks to his Josh McDaniels' connection, but you can't make the club in the tub. The Pats also placed DB Will Allen and S Josh Barrett on IR, ending their seasons.

Patriots signed FB Spencer Larsen, formerly of the Broncos, to a two-year contract.

Larsen is a favorite of Patriots OC Josh McDaniels going back to their time together in Denver. The Pats have only rarely utilized a fullback the past two seasons, so Larsen's primary impact will likely come on special teams, if not a return to linebacker.

Free agent FB Spencer Larsen reportedly visited the Patriots earlier this week.

Leave it to Bill Belichick to pursue a player with experience at fullback, linebacker, and special teams since entering the league as a 2008 sixth-round pick. Larsen wouldn't see much time as a lead-blocker in New England.

Broncos placed FB Spencer Larsen (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Larsen sprained his MCL in the regular-season finale. The Broncos needed his roster spot to add a receiver with Eric Decker sidelined. An offensive role player and special teamer, Larsen is a free agent in 2012.
Tue, Jan 10, 2012 01:19:00 PM

Broncos FB Spencer Larsen was forced from Sunday's game against the Chiefs with sprained MCL.

Larsen isn't much of a lead blocker, but he helps in short-yardage situations and plays special teams. He's likely out for the first round of the playoffs.

Broncos placed FB Spencer Larsen (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The oft-injured Larsen was Denver's little-used fullback. He's likely to return next year as a bit player and special teamer for a modest $555K salary.
Wed, Dec 22, 2010 02:00:00 PM

FB Spencer Larsen has been ruled out (ankle) for the Broncos' Week 5 game at Baltimore.

Larsen is not only important to the Denver running game, but special teams as well. Without the former linebacker suiting up Week 4 at Tennessee, the Broncos gave up a 98-yard kick return for a touchdown and mustered a putrid 19 net yards rushing against Tennessee. We wouldn't advise starting any Bronco RBs against the Ravens unless you have no other options.

TE Dan Gronkowski will fill in at fullback for Spencer Larsen, who was ruled out for Week 4 at Tennessee.

The Bronco running game is suffering multiple injuries what with Knowshon Moreno also ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Titans. As Larsen is a former linebacker, converted fullbacks are nothing new for Denver. We have Week 4 starter Laurence Maroney projected as the No. 31 RB against Tennessee's 17th-ranked rush defense.

Former linebacker Spencer Larsen is now a full-time fullback for the Broncos.

The transition is complete for the college linebacker. He hasn't been to a defensive meeting all spring, and he's only using the offensive playbook. Larsen tops the depth chart as the lead blocker following the team's trade of Peyton Hillis to the Browns.
