Dahl has operated as an offensive lineman for the near entirety of his football career at every level of play, but he's getting an opportunity to try his hand at fullback for a Detroit team that has been without both Bellore and Nick Bawden (knee). It's unlikely the 305-pound vet gets many opportunities to rush the ball, but he could help clear lanes for Zach Zenner and LeGarrette Blount over the final two games of the season -- just like he did on Zenner's one-yard touchdown plunge during Sunday's loss to Buffalo.
Dahl (undisclosed) is participating in team drills during training camp, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Dahl was limited in spring workouts, but the offensive lineman seems to be healthy again. Dahl is competing for a depth role along the offensive line.
Dahl reportedly wore a red no-contact jersey throughout OTAs and minicamp. It isn't clear what the offensive lineman is dealing with, but it might be related to the lower leg injury that planted him on injured reserve for over half of the 2017 season. When healthy, Dahl will compete for a depth role along the Detroit offensive line.
