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...

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.
The 49ers placed fullback Bruce Miller on season-ending injured reserve and signed defensive lineman/fullback Will Tukuafu for the 53-man roster.
Tukuafu played 90 snaps of offense last season as a short-yardage blocker. But in the offseason program and training camp, he concentrated solely on the defensive side.
Tukuafu (6 foot 4, 293 pounds) did not play any offense during the...

Tukuafu was one of the players the 49ers converted to play some fullback as he saw 90 snaps last season at the position.
Tukuafu suffered a knee injury at...

Since being drafted by the 49ers in the seventh round (211th...
San Francisco's Will Tukuafu has spent most of his football life chasing down running backs. The 49ers hope he can now help Frank Gore and the rest of their backfield handle other defensive tackles with the same agenda.
The 293-pound Tukuafu is getting some additional work at fullback during the 49ers' organized team activities this offseason. He even managed to catch a...

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has gained a reputation for using players in non-traditional roles, and he may be doing it again with Will Tukuafu, a defensive tackle who has been spending time at fullback during practice. On Tuesday, Tukuafu caught a pass while coming out of the backfield, and the 6-4-, 293-pound Tukuafu has been getting quite a bit of practice time...
