The Dallas Cowboys fell 36-33 to the Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving day. Lamb didn’t play in that game because of a concussion.
However, it sounds like the young star will return to the gridiron this Thursday. Lamb announced that he will play against the Saints this coming Thursday.
“I wasn’t feeling like myself, kind of something still lingering around. I couldn’t describe what it was and I knew at that moment I wasn’t mentally nor physically prepared,” Lamb said.
CeeDee Lamb said he will play Thursday vs. New Orleans after not playing vs. Raiders due to a concussion. “I wasn’t feeling like myself, kind of something still lingering around. I couldn’t describe what it was and I knew at that moment I wasn’t mentally nor physically prepared.”

Now that CeeDee Lamb’s back in the mix, attention turns to Amari Cooper.
Head coach Mike McCarthy said on Sunday that Cooper is going to practice this week, but it’s still unclear if he’ll play on Sunday.
“As far as Amari, he’ll be back in tomorrow,” McCarthy said Sunday, via DallasCowboys.com. “We’ll work him back in and see where he is as far as conditioning. … That’s obvious for any player coming off a 10-day stretch [of being away from the team].”
The Cowboys have had a recent rough stretch of games, but they weren’t at 100 percent.
The expectation is that once CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper return, the Cowboys get back on track.
Dallas has that opportunity this coming Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints.
