CeeDee Lamb, WR (DAL)

Officially questionable for Week 12

Lamb (concussion) officially is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Raiders, though the Cowboys appear optimistic he'll be ready to play. "He hasn't missed a step on a short week," coach Mike McCarthy told Todd Archer of ESPN.com after Wednesday's practice. "Just as we discussed on Monday, if he's able to keep progressing through, we see him as available for the game."

After being estimated as a non-participant on Monday's and Tuesday's practice reports, Lamb bumped up to limited activity Wednesday, the first tangible sign of progress as he recovers from a concussion sustained this past Sunday at Kansas City. Despite such a tight window for Lamb to clear all five phases of the NFL's protocol for head injuries, the Cowboys have exuded confidence in the second-year wideout being ready to go ahead of the Thanksgiving Day showdown with the Raiders. Still, Lamb is subject to clearance from both team doctors and an independent neurologist, so hurdles remain for him to avoid the inactive list, which will be released about 90 minutes before Thursday's 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff. With Amari Cooper (reserve/COVID-19 list) unavailable and Lamb's status up in the air, Dallas may yet have to rely on Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown and Malik Turner as its main options at wide receiver Week 12.
