With the quick turnaround for the Thanksgiving Day game, the second-year wideout has officially been ruled out on Thursday morning.

CeeDee Lamb Injury Update

Dallas announced its star wideout did not clear concussion protocol in time and will miss their matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Lamb has had a great season so far for the Cowboys, totaling 740 yards and 6 touchdowns on 50 catches as a crucial part of Dallas' No. 3 scoring offense.

With the Cowboys sitting at 7-3, fighting for the No. 1 seed in the NFC right now, every game matters and missing Lamb will be a huge hit to a passing game that has been vital as Ezekiel Elliott has struggled of late.

Dallas is currently a 7.5-point home favorite against Las Vegas in Week 12, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
