RENTON, Wash. (AP) Will Tukuafu won't admit to having a favorite position. Just whichever one gets him on the field.
When the Seattle Seahawks signed Tukuafu at midseason, it was for the sole purpose of being a fullback. Even though he had a history of playing on the defensive line, both in college and in his first NFL stop at San Francisco, the Seahawks were in need of a lead blocker...

The Seattle Seahawks might have found a two-way player in recently acquired fullback Will Tukuafu. This 6-2, 280 pound beast from Salt Lake City expects to take some snaps at defensive tackle on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. With the loss of nose tackle Brandon Mebane to injury, Seattle is in need of some depth at the defensive line.
After two weeks of using Robert Turbin as a stop-gap, the Seattle Seahawks will turn to 285-pound fullback Will Tukuafu to lead the way for Marshawn Lynch.
The Seahawks signed Tukuafu on Wednesday after electing to place starting fullback Derrick Coleman on injured reserve last Saturday. Turbin had served in the role on an emergency basis after Coleman broke his foot in pre-game...

A few days ago we learned that the Seattle Seahawks placed injured fullback Derrick Coleman on injured reserve after he broke his foot during warmups against the St Louis Rams. Running back Robert Turbin has been filling in for him but that’s not an ideal solution.
Yesterday the Seahawks hit on a more permanent replacement when they signed fullback Will Tukuafu to a contract:
The San Francisco 49ers have made it yet again this year to the NFC Championship game. Considering they have played three road games in two weeks, the 49ers have not had much time to rest. This includes 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu, who suffered what appeared to be a nasty knee injury in the first quarter of the 49ers 23-10 NFC divisional round playoff win over the Carolina Panthers...
Carolina Panthers starting safety Quintin Mikell is questionable to return to Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game against San Francisco after injuring his right leg.
Mikell went down while trying to cover 49ers tight end Vernon Davis on a goal-line pass with 47 seconds left in the first half. He was briefly on the ground before limping directly to the tunnel leading to the locker...

San Francisco 49ers full-back Will Tukuafu left Sunday’s NFC playoff game against the Carolina Panthers with a knee injury.
Tukuafu, 30, is a converted defensive end who appeared in two regular season games for the 49ers in 2013.
He is questionable to return.
San Francisco 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu's leg was bent into a gruesome looking position during Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.
