Colts sign former Cowboys RB Phillip Tanner


Colts sign former Cowboys RB Phillip Tanner

With Colts running back Vick Ballard out for the season and the recent release of Chris Rainey @crainey3, their backfield was looking sparse. They immediately went out looking for talent to fill their recently created voids. Adam Schefter has reported that the Colts signed former Cowboys running back, Phillip Tanner @PTanner34.

Fantasy Analysis:

Tanner most likely won't see much action, but at least he's there. He's someone to fall back on if anything else happens through camp or during the season. He was released by the Cowboys because they could not afford to pay him and he has shown below-average running ability. Since this is strictly a depth signing, Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw @AhmadBradshaw should have nothing to worry about.
