The Dallas Cowboys did not practice Monday but they released an injury report that showed what practice availability would be if there were.
Dallas was even more shaky against the Chiefs on Sunday, when CeeDee Lamb, a receiver, was struck with a concussion.
He did not return to the game, and was therefore classified as “DNP” (didn’t practice) for Monday. Safety Donovan Wilson also has a shoulder/chest injury.
Tackle Tyron Smith, running back Ezekiel Elliot, and Trysten Hill are both listed as “limited”, while Cedrick Wilson and Nahshon Wright, on the other hand, are full-go.
The Cowboys didn't practice Monday but in an estimated injury report from the team: CeeDee Lamb (concussion), Donovan Wilson (chest, shoulder) DNP; Ezekiel Elliott (knee), Tyron Smith (ankle) limited; Trysten Hill (foot), Cedrick Wilson (shoulder), Nahshon Wright (hamstring) full

The Cowboys wouldn’t have their top two wide receivers if Lamb couldn’t go against the Raiders on Thursday. Amari Cooper has already been ruled out of the game due to a positive COVID-19 testing.
This would make it the Cedrick Wilson and Michael Gallup show. It’s unlikely Cowboy fans want to see it, considering how it went against the Chiefs.
Gallup had 44 yards at five receptions while Wilson had 36 yards at four.
A potential return of Tyron Smith, tackle on Thursday, could lead to an improvement in the running game. He has been injured in the ankle over the past few weeks and is one the most effective run blockers in football.
His chances of playing would soar if he could get to his full weight by Wednesday.
At 4:30 p.m., Thanksgiving kickoff will take place ET.
