Fullback committee up next for 49ers

We have some clarity to how the San Francisco 49ers are going to handle the fullback position in wake of Bruce Miller's season-ending scapula injury.It is going to be a two-player committee.Both Anthony Dixon and newly signed Will Tukuafu played Monday in the 49ers' 34-24 win against Atlanta. Coach Jim Harbaugh indicated both will continue to play moving forward.Both fullbacks played about a dozen plays. Tukuafu's significant involvement was a bit of a surprise considering he was signed last week and he was mostly a defensive tackle when he was previously with the 49ers.
