CeeDee Lamb, WR (DAL)

Practices fully, clears protocol

Lamb was a full participant in Monday's practice and is in line to play Thursday against the Saints after clearing the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. "Going through the protocol, it was tough," Lamb said. "I feel a lot better."

After he was diagnosed with the concussion following his early exit from the Cowboys' Week 11 loss to the Chiefs, Lamb made a strong push to clear the five-step protocol for head injuries ahead of the team's Thanksgiving Day game four days later, but he ultimately didn't receive the green light from an independent neurologist ahead of Dallas' 36-33 overtime loss to the Raiders. Lamb confirmed that he was able to pass all neurological testing at some point shortly after the game against Las Vegas, putting him on track to handle his normal starting role Thursday. Meanwhile, fellow starting wideout Amari Cooper didn't practice Monday while he was subject to cardiac testing after completing a 10-day quarantine following a positive COVID-19 test, but he should be ready to play this week if he's able to get back on the practice field at some point over the next two days. At this stage, No. 4 wideout Cedrick Wilson -- who injured his ankle Thanksgiving Day and didn't practice Monday -- looks to be the Dallas receiver most at risk of sitting out Week 13.
