It doesn’t take much for Dallas Cowboys fans to go crazy, but an injury to a big-name player can send many of them over the edge.
Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb was a surprise non-participant in Wednesday’s joint practice with the Los Angeles Chargers, and it’s because of an injury.
The third-year wideout was seen in sweatpants as things got underway in Costa Mesa for the first of back-to-back days of scrimmages between the two teams. It was later revealed that he had a foot injury.
“Foot issue is not considered serious for Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb,” Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News tweeted. “Not structural, person familiar with issue said. The term ‘injury’ may even be too strong. No long-term concern.”
It’s unclear when Lamb suffered the injury. The Cowboys and Chargers will play a preseason game at SoFi Stadium on Saturday.
Despite the injury not being considered serious, Cowboys fans are losing their minds online.
The Cowboys traded wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns for a fifth-round pick in order to get rid of his $20 million salary. That move may come back to bite them in the butt.
Lamb established himself as Dak Prescott’s No. 1 option in 2021. He led the team with 79 receptions and 1,102 yards in 16 games.
