FRISCO, Texas — Four days after struggling a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is heading in the correct direction to play Thursday in opposition to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Lamb, who leads the Cowboys in receptions (50), yards (740) and receiving touchdowns (six), went thru Wednesday’s be aware and became negate to fulfill with team docs and an self sufficient neurologist for closing clearance after the recount.

Lamb is formally listed as questionable on the injury sage, but coach Mike McCarthy is optimistic he’ll play.

“He hasn’t overlooked a step on a brief week,” McCarthy mentioned. “Unbiased correct as we mentioned on Monday, if he’s capable of protect progressing thru, we see him as on hand for the game.”

Lamb suffered the concussion late in the 2d quarter in opposition to the Chiefs when his head slammed in opposition to the bottom. Whereas he appeared supreme, he became held out of the 2d half of. He became capable of take half in meetings on Monday and continue thru the concussion protocol with none setbacks.

“He became tall these days,” Dak Prescott mentioned “Did every thing, bought a dinky bit session in with him [Tuesday]. I believe that became fancy his test off for essentially the most fragment and we did some double moves, issues fancy that to construct sure that obviously ethical the balance and turning the pinnacle and he didn’t in truth feel something from it, so I make now now not think we now contain got any obstacles going into the game with him.”

With Lamb capable of play, the Cowboys’ passing assault would be bolstered, but this would possibly perhaps perhaps nonetheless be without wide receiver Amari Cooper. He’s missing his 2d straight game on the reserve/COVID-19 checklist as an unvaccinated player. If he clears the COVID protocols, he would possibly perhaps perhaps perhaps also return in time for be aware before the Dec. 2 assembly in opposition to the Unusual Orleans Saints.

On defense, the Cowboys started the 21-day be aware window for defensive pause DeMarcus Lawrence, even though he’ll now now not play in opposition to the Raiders.

Lawrence suffered a broken foot in be privy to a days after the season opener. He had surgical plan without prolong and stepped up his rehab in contemporary weeks and would possibly perhaps perhaps perhaps be on hand in a dinky characteristic in opposition to the Saints. Randy Gregory will miss his third straight game with a calf tension but he will be nearer to returning after doing extra in rehab this week.
