I thought Tyler Clutts put on a clinic last night. All night long he sprung the RB's with huge blocks. He caught the ball well too. The guy is a blocking stud. He also got work as a long snapper, and of course on ST's.
In the 2nd quarter, the Browns strong side LB was injured when he tried to tackle Clutts. Tyler is a load trying to tackle.

An intriguing look to the first half of the Bears-Browns game was the extensive use of Tyler Clutts at fullback, working as a lead blocker as he did with great success for Forte last season.
Coordinator Mike Tice prefers a one-back offense and the Bears have been expected to carry four tight ends – Kellen Davis, Kyle Adams, Matt Spaeth and rookie Evan Rodriguez. Davis and Adams project as locks, and Rodriguez is the team’s 2012 fourth-round draft choice and developing well through camp and preseason.
But Clutts appeared to be playing himself into real consideration for a spot that seemed a longshot just a couple weeks ago.
Spaeth is a good blocker but more expensive than Adams and Rodriguez. Clutts is a contributor on special teams, including serving as the backup long snapper.
Clutts worked into a variety of roles in the backfield, where Spaeth is arguably not as effective. Clutts executed strong blocks for both Armando Allen and Lorenzo Booker, and also was out in short passing routes.
