Dallas Cowboys star CeeDee Lamb had to miss Wednesday's practice with a foot injury.

Per Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News, the receiver didn't participate in the team's joint session with the Los Angeles Chargers, but Cowboys officials don't believe it is a serious issue.

Lamb later said he was "fine":

CeeDee Lamb said he’s fine. He suffered a cut foot and got some stitches.

Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News posted a picture of Lamb walking around without a protective boot:

It's unclear when Lamb suffered the injury. The Cowboys and Chargers will play a preseason game at SoFi Stadium on Saturday.

Injuries haven't been a big issue for Lamb in his career. The Oklahoma alum suffered a concussion in Dallas' 19-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11 last season and was forced to sit out the Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders. It's the only game he's missed through his first two seasons.

Losing Lamb for any period will have a significant impact on the Cowboys offense. They no longer have as much depth at wide receiver as they did in 2021 after trading Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns during the offseason.

James Washington is expected to miss six to 10 weeks with a fractured foot, and Michael Gallup has already said he will miss Week 1 as he recovers from a torn ACL.

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.

The Cowboys are looking to build off last season's success when they won the NFC East with a 12-5 record.
