After losing Vick Ballard to a season ending achilles tear, the Indianapolis Colts signed ex-Cowboys’ Running Back, Phillip Tanner, today to an undisclosed contract. Originally signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State in 2011, Tanner looks to add competition and depth to the Colts’ Running Back position.

The 25 year old Tanner has 56 career carries for 149 yards and 2 TD’s for a 2.7 ypc average in 3 seasons, all with the Cowboys. He appeared in all 16 games for Dallas last season.
