CeeDee Lamb injury update will please Cowboys fans
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is in concussion protocol and has to clear several symptoms before being allowed to play Thursday against the Las Vegas Raiders. While hopes are not high he would be able to suit up, it is not without a chance.
Mike McCarthy hinted as much on Tuesday ahead of their Tuesday practice, noting that Lamb has progressed well in his recovery.
“He’s in the meetings. He’ll probably get to the point where he can do some light field work today,” McCarthy said, per Michael Gehlken of Dallas Morning News.
While CeeDee Lamb was eventually not able to practice, McCarthy’s update certainly bodes well in their bid to have their young wideout healthy in time for Thursday’s game. Besides, they need every help they can get at the position with Amari Cooper set to miss the contest after testing positive for COVID-19.
For what it’s worth, Cowboys VP Stephen Jones also expressed optimism about Lamb’s recovery in his recent appearance on 105.3 The Fan, sharing that the 22-year-old is “doing really well” and will have the chance to be available in time against the Raiders.
Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said on @1053thefan that CeeDee Lamb (concussion protocol) is “doing really well” and will have an opportunity to play Thursday. “If he were having issues today then you’d probably be a little leery.” But they’re optimistic because he’s feeling well today

It remains to be seen what the Cowboys will do with Lamb. They are clearly taking a day-by-day approach since they really need at least one of their top wideouts. If he can’t make it, though, Dallas will have to rely on Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson to carry the load. Ezekiel Elliott and the rushing game also needs to be on point if they want to take down the hungry Raiders.
