The Dallas Cowboys were without multiple key players against the Las Vegas Raiders during the Thanksgiving loss.
It sounds like the same will be true next Thursday.
The Cowboys are set to play the Saints in New Orleans on Thursday evening. While Dallas could get wide receiver CeeDee Lamb back for that game, the offensive line has taken a hit.
Dallas announced that offensive lineman Terence Steele will miss Thursday’s game.
The Cowboys’ practice plan for game vs. NO has been altered greatly because of COVID. Starting RT Terence Steele was in being placed on the COVID list and 3 offensive coaches, Joe Philbin, Jeff Blasko, Scott Tolzien are in COVID protocols and will not be available for game

The Cowboys could now be forced to move La’el Collins into the right tackle spot, which is a wanted move by many Dallas fans.
“I know now they are forced to play the better player. What a shame!” one fan tweeted.
“This is good news. Not good news of positive testing. But no more rotation of line man. Start 71 and let’s go,” one fan added.
Still, it’s been a tough couple of weeks for Cowboys fans.
“Man we can’t catch a break,” one fan added.
“Cowboys can’t catch a break,” another fan wrote.
The Cowboys and the Saints will kick off at 8:20 p.m. E.T. on Thursday night.
