Cowboys Banged Up Heading Into Short Thanksgiving Week

The Cowboys' situation went from bad to worse in yesterday's loss to the . Some key offensive players came out of the game with new or reaggravated health issues, and now Dallas has just a few days before their next kickoff against the on Day.

The biggest concern is with , who suffered a concussion just before halftime and did not return. Already missing on the COVID list, Dallas will likely be without their two top receivers for Thursday's game. The door isn't closed on Lamb but the window for the concussion protocol will close very quickly.

Also, self-reported that he hurt his knee during the game. We also saw Zeke get an ankle twisted on one play but neither ended his day. Hopefully he still feels as good today once the adrenaline's worn off.

Tyron Smith surprised by not playing yesterday after week-long reports of his anticipated return. Smith's been out for three games now with an ankle injury and his absence was felt hard against Kansas City; was sacked five times and pressured on several other plays.

With the Cowboys doing enough throughout the game for them to win, the couldn't overcome its missing components. They may be similarly handicapped against the Raiders this week, so hopefully can devise a better plan for how to succeed with what he's got.
