Cowboys’ CeeDee Lamb says he will play in Week 13 against Saints

Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb missed the Dallas Cowboys’ Week 12 matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders due to a concussion suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs the week prior. After going through meetings last Monday and showing no setbacks on Tuesday and Wednesday, the thought was he might have a chance to play on Thanksgiving.

Lamb would sit out, though, and the Cowboys went with Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson as the starting receivers in Thursday’s loss. However, after practicing on Monday, Lamb confirmed he would play against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football.

The Cowboys leading receiver in 2021 did everything he could to pull off a miracle and get back on the field against the Raiders just four days after his concussion, but he wasn’t quite right to do so.

“I wasn’t feeling like myself, kind of something still lingering around,” Lamb said. “I couldn’t describe what it was and I knew at that moment I wasn’t mentally nor physically prepared.”

The return of Lamb along with potentially getting back Amari Cooper from the Reserve/COVID list would give the Cowboys their two top pass catchers, and with Dak Prescott struggling over the last few games, the timing is perfect. The Cowboys are looking to get over their recent slump, losing three of their four games.
