Raiders-Cowboys Week 12 Injury Report: John Simpson a gameday decision, Lamb questionable for Dallas

Las Vegas Raiders:

Interim Head Coach Rich Bisaccia confirmed guard John Simpson is a "gameday decision" for Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys as he continues to deal with a rib injury. Simpson was a limited participant in Wednesday's walkthrough, with Bisaccia saying the guard "did move around pretty good out there today."

Meanwhile, linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (ankle) will miss his third straight game, while cornerback Keisean Nixon (ankle) has also been ruled out.

Running back Jalen Richard (ribs) was a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough, after he was limited earlier in the week.

Linebackers coach Richard Smith will not attend Thursday's game at Dallas due to COVID-19 protocols. His gameday duties will be absorbed by the defensive staff.

The Raiders conducted walkthroughs Monday-Wednesday, and the reports are an estimation. Take a look at the full report below:
