The Dallas Cowboys were without one of their top wideouts in an overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 12. Second-year pro CeeDee Lamb could not pass the NFL's concussion protocol in time to suit up. Fortunately, that is no longer the case heading into Week 13.

Lamb has already confirmed to reporters that he will be back on the field with his team on Thursday night. He remains adamant that the ringing that was once in his head has gone away, which is exactly the type of news Cowboys fans wanted to hear.
