Chandler is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the undefeated Houston Texans. Chanlder was previously on the Cowboys practice squad.
Anderson, who recently had knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus, will be placed on the waived/injured list, according to Eatman.
The departure of Anderson leaves Dallas with rookie Chris Gronkowski as the only fullback on the active roster. Gronkowski has been a big threat coming out of the backfield in the first two games. Last week vs. the Bears, Gronkowski had three receptions including a great grab for his first career touchdown.
