Lori Nickel, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers will train RB Najeh Davenport at fullback. Offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski said both Davenport and RB Ahman Green could be in the backfield at the same time. Jagodzinski added, "In this scheme, the fullback position has always been able to go back and play tailback because of what we do. I think he can do both. He's athletic enough to do it." The team likes that Davenport is big enough to block at fullback.
