The injury report of the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday’s practice includes key players who have been injured ahead of their game against Las Vegas Raiders. Lamb was able to return to practice Wednesday, but it was only a limited recovery and is still questionable for Thursday’s match.
Cowboys injury report against Raiders
Did Not Practice – Cowboys: S Donovan Wilson(Shoulder/Chest)
On Wednesday, the Cowboys broke the bad news regarding Wilson and announced that they would place him on injured reserve. Wilson’s ongoing chest and shoulder injuries will keep him out of the next three games.
Initially, the Cowboys weren’t sure if he would be available next week. A quick turnaround would prevent him from playing in the Raiders game. The decision to transfer him to injured reserve meant that he would not be available for play until next week.
DeMarcus Lawrence, defensive end, was also present at practice as he approaches his return to the field. Lawrence’s injury to his foot will keep him off the field for now. However, the Cowboys believe that Lawrence could return to the field next week.
Limited Participation Cowboys: Wr CeeDee Lamb (Concussion).
Good news for Cowboys: Rising star CeeDee lamb returned to the practice fields in a limited capacity.
Lamb was forced to leave the game after his helmet hit the ground while a pass was being made to him. Lamb twisted his body to disrupt the catch by the defender, and his helmet bounced off the ground after the impact.
Lamb was helped into the locker room following the play, but was later ruled out of the rest of the game due to a head injury. On Monday, the Cowboys stated that Lamb was feeling well and they expected him to be available for Thursday’s game. Although he was welcome to return to practice Wednesday, his status for Thursday is still uncertain.
Full Participation Cowboys:RB Ezekiel Ell(Knee), T Tyron Smith (Ankle), T Trysten Hill (Foot), T Tyron Smith, T Tyron Smith(Ankle), T Tyron Smith(1), DT Trysten Hills(Foot), T Cedrick Wilson(1)Shoulder), CB Nahshon Wright(1)Hamstring).
After aggravating an existing knee injury against Chiefs, Elliott continues his streak of injury reports for the Cowboys. Elliott was tackled routinely after being wrapped up on a passing route. The defenders’ weight fell directly on Elliott’s right leg, further injuring his already injured knee. Elliott was unable to walk off the field following the play. He returned to the offensive drive.
Although Elliott and Tyron Smith were listed as limited on Monday’s injury report, they both participated in practice on Tuesday- and Wednesday.
Smith’s condition is worth monitoring as he recovers after an ankle injury. However, the Cowboys said on Tuesday that they don’t believe the injury will affect Smith’s performance throughout the season. The Cowboys’ offensive lines have been plagued by injuries and the suspension La’el Collins, but they found stability in solid backup play and flexible players who filled in when needed.
Although Smith is expected to return to the Cowboys this Thursday, the Cowboys remain optimistic. Smith has not played since Week 8, when he was against the Minnesota Vikings.
Wilson’s positive COVID-19 test result meant that Amari Cooper, Cowboys’ receiver, continues to miss games. The head injury Lamb sustained on Sunday added to Dallas’ problems. The Cowboys may have enough depth in passing to be competitive with the Cowboys if Michael Gallup is not available.
