The Dallas Cowboys lost 19-9 to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. CeeDee Lamb, their star receiver, did not play in the second half. After suffering a head injury, he was forced to leave the Kansas City Chiefs game. The pass meant for Lamb was intercepted by quarterback Dak Prescott as the second quarter was about to end. Lamb’s head hit the ground hard and was assisted to the locker room by Dak Prescott.
After the game, Dak Prescott spoke to reporters and gave an update on Ceedee’s head injury.
Prescott stated that he was fine, via The Athletic’s Jon Machota. He said he would be fine.”
After Dak Prescott’s intercepted pass, which could have led to a field goal, the Cowboys ended the first period with more frustration. Ceedee lamb’s head injury was the more serious result. Lamb was checked in the locker room for possible concussion after his helmet hit the ground.
Although the Cowboys didn’t confirm any diagnosis, they did inform the broadcast team that Lamb had been ruled out of the game due to a head injury.
Before being injured, Lamb only had three catches of 14 yards from Prescott. Amari Cooper, a star receiver, is also absent. Cooper was declared ineligible for Sunday’s game due to a positive COVID-19 test. Cooper was not vaccinated and will need to be quarantined for at least ten more days.
Ceedee lamb emerged as the go-to option for Dak Preston, with Amari Cooper (and Michael Gallup) coming in and out. This season, he has 50 catches and 740 receiving yards. He also added five carries and 30 rushing yards.
Ezekiel Elliott, running back for the Dallas Cowboys, was also injured on Sunday. However, he would be back to play.
After an awkward tackle in which his ankle was pinched under the tackler’s weight, Elliott left the field. Elliott was also caught on a short route to safety. The tackler’s knee had driven into Elliott’s right leg as he tried to catch a quick escape. Elliott appeared immediately in pain and motioned to the sideline to request a substitution. He limped slowly to his teammates.
Elliott would make a quick return to the Cowboys game during Cowboys’ next drive. He only missed a few offensive snaps. Elliott’s absences are not unusual this season, as the Cowboys play to Tony Pollard and Elliott.
