The Dallas Cowboys stumbled in Week 12 with an overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders and must get their 7-4 record turned around after two straight losses.

Dallas struggled with injuries in Week 12 and played without leading wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. Running back Ezekiel Elliott played through an obvious knee injury and it showed as he racked up just 25 rushing yards.

Fortunately, the Cowboys received some great injury updates around their leading playmakers on Monday.

CeeDee Lamb Injury Update

Lamb hasn't played since Week 11 thanks to a concussion he suffered in the second quarter of Dallas' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The short week was ultimately not enough time for Lamb to clear concussion protocols, but the standout wide receiver was a full participant in Monday's practice.

Ezekiel Elliott Injury Update

Elliott was also a full participant in Monday's practice despite aggravating a knee injury on Thanksgiving. It's unclear how much the knee injury will limit Elliott's involvement in the offense moving forward, but the current plan is for him to continue playing through the pain.

Elliott has tallied 948 yards from scrimmage this season including 9 total touchdowns. Lamb leads the team with 50 receptions (740 receiving yards) and owns 6 receiving TDs on the year. Clearly, these playmakers are vital to the strength of the Cowboys offense.
