Fullbacks are usually the most stereotypical "football guys" of any position in the sport, though offensive linemen can give them a run for their money. But Las Vegas Raiders' fullback Alec Ingold may have just tipped the scales in the fullbacks' favor.

Despite fracturing two ribs last week, Ingold will reportedly gut it out and play on Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

Just classic "football guy" stuff from Ingold, here.

Running behind Ingold, Raiders' running back Josh Jacobs is currently third in the NFL in rushing yards at 588. Having Ingold back should help the Raiders' running game attack a Broncos' defense that checks in at No. 9 in Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics.

Ingold's Raiders are currently 4.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 10 NFL odds.
