Cowboys re-sign Phillip Tanner

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.
