REPORT: CeeDee Lamb Sprains Ankle, Update on Michael Gallup’s Return

Cowboys Wide Receiver CeeDee Lamb is currently dealing with an ankle sprain suffered in yesterday’s practice. He appeared on Dallas’ injury report yesterday and is limited today, but there isn’t serious concern according to Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

Lamb is currently leading the Cowboys in catches and receiving yards in 2021, though closely followed by Amari Cooper in both categories. The margins narrowed last week in Minnesota when Cooper’s big day and game-winning touchdown helped Dallas get the upset win.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb sprained his ankle during practice Wednesday, coach Mike McCarthy said. He’ll be limited today.

If Lamb were to miss Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos, Dallas would likely have to turn to Cedrick Wilson as the replacement. It would also mean more opportunities for Noah Brown and possibly some rare playing time for rookie Simi Fehoko.

The best option would be for a possible absence by CeeDee to coincide with the return of Michael Gallup, but McCarthy was ambiguous on that topic earlier today.

Michael Gehlken on Twitter: “Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (calf) is practicing for second week on IR. Mike McCarthy: “Just want to see him get through a full week and then evaluate it. I thought he had a really good week last week, so we’ll just see how it goes. We’re kind of up in the air on where he is.” / Twitter”

Dallas has been without the third head of its WR monster since the middle of its season opener. Gallup injured his lower leg against Tampa Bay has been recovering throughout the Cowboys’ six-game winning streak and the bye week.

Gallup is currently in the 3-week practice window under the injured reserve policy. He has to either return from IR or remain on it permanently following Dallas’ Week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

What do you think?

  1. Anyone slse starting to sense we may not get to see each of our unit’s full compliment of players (WR, D line, O line, CB) at full strength on the field at the same time this season?

  2. Yeah Ethan, unfortunately injuries appear to be a considerably part of the NFL overall. In the day, many players, somehow, played through many (not all) injuries. Today, because of the huge investments in these players, teams are much more cautious.

    To answer your question, it’s hard to see all our positions being at full strength at the same time, but if it happens, look out. Could be Super Bowl bound?

  3. No coincidence Tampa Bay was the healthiest team in the NFL last season. As long as we have no season ending injuries, which we haven’t so far, we’re good.

  4. Good point Gary b, btw this Lamb kid has been about as good as any WR in the league. For that matter, our WR position is right up there with the best.

  5. Agreed even with Gallup being out for most of the year, we’ve had Ced Wilson step up and even Noah Brown making plays from time to time, if there’s a place where we can afford to have players get hurt, it’s at WR

    No particular need here for Ceedee to come back and play this week vs. Denver if it’s anything to worry about, but I guess from what MMC said there isn’t anything to worry about

  6. It’s rare when any team has the whole starting roster intact and healthy. The cowboys have shown they have depth this year and the rookies have been good contributors as well. Also with injuries is when good coaching comes into play. Great job by our entire coaching staff coaching up this team and getting good production from the FAs and rookies in particular.
