The Dallas Cowboys have brought back running back Phillip Tanner.

He'll play Thursday night against the Denver Broncos.

Tanner was recently cut by the Indianapolis colts.

Ryan Williams has a groin injury, Joseph Randle has an oblique injury and the Cowboys are resting Lance Dunbar.

Tanner will see the bulk of the carries for the Cowboys on Thursday.
