After a Thanksgiving Day loss against the Las Vegas Raiders, the Dallas Cowboys have lost three of their last four. Before facing the New Orleans Saints, Dallas published their injury report.
Did not Practice – Cowboys Wide receiver Cedrick Wilson, (ankle).
Cedrick Wilson, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, was the only one not to practice Monday. An ankle injury he sustained against the Raiders has forced him to miss practice.
Dallas’ wide receiver position is already thin, with Amari Cooper and CeeDee lamb absent. Dak Prescott’s offense would be devastated if Wilson is lost.
Limited Participation Cowboys: Defensive End Tarell Basham (chest).
Tarell Basham, defensive end, was the only player who had to be limited in practice due to a chest problem. After recording a forced fumble and sack, he sustained the injury on Turkey Day.
Full Participation Cowboys: Runningback Ezekiel Elliot, Wide receiver CeeDee lamb (concussion).
On Monday, two of the Cowboys best offensive players were fully involved in running back Ezekiel Elliott and wide receiver CeeDee lamb.
Elliot was reportedly considering taking the week off because of a knee injury. When Elliot was asked about his ankle injury, he replied that he would play against New Orleans.
“I have been struggling with it for nearly two months. It has improved. It can get stiff, but there are other methods I can use to help it out,” Elliott stated, citing heating wrap as one method. He clarified that he has not been forced to take it easy or rest it by the Cowboys’ coaches and said “noone has ever brought it up to you.”
Lamb will also be participating on Thursday. Lamb was also concussed just before the half-time match against the Kansas City Chiefs. He will miss the Thanksgiving matchup. The wide receiver spoke about his recovery from the injury.
“A head injury does not make it fun,” Lamb stated to the media Monday. “Obviously, I wanted to be there.”
Lamb stated, “I wasn’t feeling like me, kind of something still lurking around.” “I could not describe it and knew that I was neither mentally nor physically ready for it.”
