Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb is back with a left tackle, Tyron Smith, after playing against the Las Vegas Raiders at Thanksgiving and missing three games due to an ankle injury.
Ram practiced to allow play the day before the match on Thursday, but did not get permission. The second-year player continued to have a concussion shortly before half-time in a defeat at 19-9 Kansas City on Sunday.
Because there is no ram, the Cowboys do not have the top two receivers. Amari Cooper has missed two games in a row after testing positive for COVID-19. Cooper was unvaccinated and a short week after losing to the Chiefs required him a second game due to the NFL protocol.
Smith hurt his ankle in his victory in Minnesota on October 31, and the Cowboys lost twice without him in Dallas’ two worst offensive performances of the season.
Las Vegas left guard John Simpson became active after being listed as suspicious of a diagonal injury, and Jalen Richard’s (rib) running back was cleared for full practice the day before the match. .. Linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (ankle) and cornerback Keithian Nixon had already been excluded.
Peyton Barber’s running back, the fight against Jackson Barton, and defensive lineman Malcolm Koonce and Kendall Vickers are the other inactive Raiders.
Other inactive in Dallas are quarterback Will Grier and aggressive lineman Matt Farniok.
