Dallas Cowboys have signed RB Phillip Tanner
The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed Phillip Tanner. Tanner signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2011. Tanner was recently released by the Colts, and will be a guy that gets a ton of work on Thursday.

Cowboys to sign RB Phillip Tanner. He’ll likely get a few carries Thurs. night with RBs banged up.
Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are competing for the third spot on the depth chart behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar, but Randle has an oblique injury and the oft-injured Williams is fighting a groin issue. Per Eatman, Tanner, who ran for 12 yards on nine carries in Dallas last year, will handle “most” of the running on Thursday while also seeing time on special teams.
