Dallas’ top wide receiver CeeDee Lamb was forced to leave the Cowboys’ loss to the Chiefs after suffering a concussion just before halftime. CeeDee Lamb will be benched for the Cowboys vs Raiders match on week 12. Dallas Cowboys will be down two wide receivers this Thursday afternoon.

CeeDee did not practice for two days however, he did log a limited session on Wednesday. CeeDee’s return to practice on Wednesday gave hope that he could be cleared from the concussion protocol. Everyone thought he would play in the Cowboys vs Raiders annual Thanksgiving home game.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that Lamb was not able to get the green light for his game. The Cowboys will have to play the Thanksgiving special without him.

Amari Cooper still remains in the COVID-19 protocol. The Cowboys will be starting with Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown, and Malik Turner at wideout. Amari and CeeDee will remain benched.

Despite the bad news at receiver, the Cowboys will be be getting a big chunk of meat in their offensive bone. After missing the last three games with an ankle injury, left tackle Tyron Smith is set to play. Even with a limited practice session on Wednesday, Lamb ultimately could not clear the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Dak Prescott’s fantasy upside is definitely hurt but Michael Gallup’s boost as Dallas’ top receiver is tempting. Fantasy managers might toy with the idea of playing Cedrick Wilson as a flex. Dalton Schultz is also going to see some additional targets with Lamb out.

In search of simplicity and inner peace, Gunjan is basically a guy soldiering through his paranoia. You could say Art, Witty/Dark/Retard Humor, Movies, Anime, Post-rock/Black Metal/Hip-Hop/Shoegaze Music, Football, Creative Writing, Photography, Videography are his forte. A Jack of All Trades and a Master of Many. Dangerously bipolar. He can go on months without being productive and also work 12 hours straight. He's basically a lazy, procrastinating person. But if art and ideas hit him like sudden motivational sparks, he can invest sleepless nights on that. Drive to creating art: Sometimes guilt and inferiority complex. Sometimes sudden spikes of motivation seeing artists like yuumei, bosslogic, Kim Jung gi amongst others. Gunjan loves doing scribble art the most. It defines him. He says - 'It's like I'm lost and hoping to find a way out at the end. Expressing my chaotic, spontaneous mind, looking for inner peace in those infinite entanglements I create.' He loves to let the ink flow, losing control, losing myself completely in the act.' Once he was asked - 'why this constant urge of being good at everything? You are great at the things you do best. You don't have to be a master of every art. ' To that he replied - 'because that's how I work. I just don't like this idea of stopping at what I have already achieved. Limitations disgust me. I believe in becoming a jack of all trades and a master of many, plus this innate ability of being good at what I try doing and this upper hand of being a fast learner. I want to master all kinds of musical instruments, sports, forms of art.' He invests in ideas, brainstorming, creativity, flexibility, originality. Professionally however, he is that regular ‘IT guy’. He previously worked on roles such as Full Stack Engineer, Frontend Developer, UX/UI Designer, Digital Artist and Data Analyst. He is willing to use his flexibility and adaptability, coupled with the innate ability of being an extremely fast learner to use his words and wisdom here at Thirsty For News. Fun fact: He is obsessed with huskies, number "7", Germany, Japan, football, Naruto, Breaking Bad, cinema (in a broader perspective) Tldr: In search of simplicity and inner peace.
