Cowboys won't tender Phillip Tanner
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys won't offer a $1.389 million tender to restricted free agent running back Phillip Tanner, making him an unrestricted free agent, reports the Dallas Morning News. Tanner signed with Dallas in 2011 as an undrafted free agent and has been a special teams contributor and backup running back.

Lance Dunbar, Phillip Tanner non-entities Sunday
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running backs Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner did little behind starter Joseph Randle with DeMarco Murray injured Sunday in the Week 8 loss at Detroit. 

Dunbar finished second on the team in rushing behind Randle with just 16 yards on five carries. He did not see any targets in the passing game. 

Tanner finished with two carries for 8 yards in the game on the ground. He had one catch for 17 yards on one target from Tony Romo. 

Dallas should get Murray back for Week 9 against Minnesota.

Fantasy Analysis | 1382549010
Phillip Tanner unlikely to score again
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner scored a touchdown last week, his first of the season, with DeMarco Murray missing action against the Eagles. Heading into Week 8 at Detroit, Murray's status remains uncertain again.

Tanner and Joseph Randle would continue to see more looks with Murray out again. That said, we are unsure just how many touches are in store for Tanner, the expected backup to Randle. While Tanner scored last week, he only had two carries for 1 yard and one catch for 7 more.

Tanner will be facing a team that has allowed the 12th-most Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season. That said, Detroit has not allowed a rushing touchdown in the last three games and have allowed just two over the last five weeks.

Regardless of Murray's health for Week 8, Tanner is a low-end Fantasy option for Sunday's game.

Phillip Tanner makes most of limited touches Week 7
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys backup running back Phillip Tanner didn't get much work Week 7 at Philadelphia, even with running backs DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar sidelined by injuries. However, Tanner did something Sunday starter Joseph Randle didn't -- score a touchdown.

Tanner had the team's only rushing touchdown Sunday -- a 1-yard score in the third quarter. It was his second career rushing touchdown and first since 2011.

Tanner finished with two carries for 1 yards and one catch for 7 yards in the 17-3 win. The Cowboys are back in action Week 8 at Detroit.

Cowboys trying to remain upbeat after losing top RB
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the Cowboys preparing to move forward without running back DeMarco Murray, who suffered a sprained MCL Sunday vs. Washington, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team has confidence in running backs Phillip Tanner and Joseph Randle. Backup running back Lance Dunbar sat out Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, but he is expected back soon, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

"We’ll get Dunbar back, and Murray back, and get back to full speed there at running back," Jones said. "But obviously, I think Tanner and Randle, if he can’t go, will do a good job for us."

Randle got most of the work once Murray left the game, but the results weren't great. He rushed for 17 yards on 11 carries, though he had a rushing touchdown. Tanner had just one carry for 2 yards.

"Any time a player comes out of the game and can’t go back in, you’re concerned," Jones said. "We’re playing well with (Murray). There’s a fall-off there, but I also thought it was nice for Randle to get in there and get his feet wet. I think it’s only going to get better for him."
