Four days after suffering a concussion, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is on track to play Thursday against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Lamb, who leads the Cowboys in catches (50), yards (740) and receiving touchdown (six), went through Wednesday's practice and was set to meet with team doctors and an independent neurologist for final clearance after the workout.
Lamb is listed as questionable on the injury report, but McCarthy is optimistic that he will play.
McCarthy said that he hadn't missed a step on a short week. We see him as available for the game if he keeps progressing through.
Lamb was knocked out in the second quarter against the Chiefs when his head slammed against the ground. He was held out of the second half. He was able to take part in meetings on Monday and continue through the concussion protocol.
"He was great today, I did everything, got a little session in with him," said the quarterback. I think that was a good check off for him, we did some double moves to make sure he didn't feel anything from it, so I don't think we have any limitations going into the game with him.
With Lamb able to play, the Cowboys' passing attack would be strengthened but will still be without Cooper. He is not on the reserve list for the second game in a row. He could return in time for practice before the New Orleans Saints game if he clears the COVID protocols.
The Cowboys will not play Lawrence against the Raiders, but they started their 21-day practice window for him.
Lawrence broke his foot in practice a few days after the opener. He could be available in a limited role against the Saints after he had surgery and stepped up his rehabilitation. Randy Gregory will miss his third game in a row with a calf strain, but he is closer to returning after doing more in rehab this week.
