Lamb was initially labeled “questionable” to return while going through the NFL’s concussion protocol. That changed following the diagnosis.
“CeeDee Lamb now ruled out with a concussion,” Schefter tweeted. The insider also noted, “Dallas on a short week after today with Thanksgiving game vs. the Raiders.”
With the quick turnaround before Thursday’s game, Lamb is in jeopardy of being ruled out for that game as well.
No. 88 is one of Dallas’ top playmakers, despite being held to just 14 yards on three catches before exiting the action. The Cowboys offense just can’t seem to put anything together against the Chiefs defense through three quarters.

So far, it’s been another up-and-down week for Dallas. The Cowboys got blown out by Denver two weeks ago, blew out the Atlanta Falcons last week, and now they find themselves down 16-6 to KC.
Should the Cowboys be without Lamb on Thanksgiving Day, Dallas will be down to Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson on the outside.
On Friday it was reported star wideout Amari Cooper will miss the next two games after testing positive for COVID.
