It appears that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb and offensive lineman Tyron Smith may suit up for the team's Thanksgiving Day Week 12 game against the Las Vegas Raiders after all.

It was reported on Monday that Dallas could be without wide receivers Amari Cooper -- who tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs and is unvaccinated -- and Lamb, who suffered a concussion against Kansas City, when they play the Raiders on Thursday. Smith, meanwhile, hasn't played since Week 8 due to an ankle injury.
Lamb is the team's leader in targets (77), receptions (50), receiving yards (740) and receiving touchdowns (six). If both Lamb and Cooper sit out Week 12, quarterback Dak Prescott's primary receiving options will include tight end Dalton Schultz, wide receiver Michael Gallup and running backs Ezekiel Elliott.
The Cowboys and Raiders are slated to kick off at 4:30 p.m. ET on Thursday.
