Caleb McSurdy is not one of Dallas' most notable players, but he is doing his best to contribute to the team.
Starting fullback Lawrence Vickers is currently recovering from back surgery and the Cowboys needed someone to fill in for the position in workouts. According to ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer, McSurdy was more than happy to step in despite being a linebacker.
"It was only five or six plays they had me look at but, yeah, it was a lot of fun just being out there. Offense, defense, special teams, if you’re playing ball, you’re playing ball," McSurdy told Archer.
The 2012 seventh-round pick hasn't had a great start to his NFL career, tearing his Achilles' tendon last year in training camp. McSurdy seems to be trying to make up for lost time, however, playing wherever he can get significant time.
No matter what sport it is, coaches are always looking for players who will go wherever needed. McSurdy surely has gotten on head coach Jason Garrett's good side by filling in at fullback.
It will be hard for McSurdy to find playing time at either fullback or linebacker this year, but he's doing the best to make a case for himself.
