Cowboys star Dak Prescott inspires confidence in CeeDee Lamb potentially playing vs. Raiders
The Dallas Cowboys lost a tough game to the Kansas City Chiefs last week. Not only were the Cowboys defeated, but they emerged from the game with a blow sustained to one of their best players, wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. Despite hitting his head hard on the field, Lamb reportedly has a chance to play against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 12. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott inspired further confidence in the chances of CeeDee Lamb playing against the Raiders.
Busy with a haircut and physical therapy on a short week, Dak Prescott spoke to reporters via conference call. Asked about CeeDee Lamb, the #Cowboys QB said, “He looked great today. He did everything. … I don’t think we have any limitations going into the game with him.”

That’s good news for the Cowboys. Quick turnaround aside, it sounds like Lamb is recovering well from the hard hit he took to the head last week. Plus, Prescott’s vote of confidence is not the only one coming from the Cowboys corner ahead of the game against the Raiders.
Head coach Mike McCarthy said he’s hopeful that Lamb will be able to clear the NFL’s concussion protocol in time to suit up for Thursday’s game against the Raiders. Lamb’s presence would be big for a Cowboys offense already down star wideout Amari Cooper.
An active Lamb on Thursday would help Prescott and the Cowboys potentially get back on track against a Raiders defense that has lost three games in a row while allowing over 30 points in each of their last two contests.
It remains to be seen if CeeDee Lamb will be out there for the Cowboys against the Raiders, though consider Dak Prescott among those who think the second-year pro will suit up.
