CeeDee Lamb is shown in a viral video being choked by a Vikings safety [WATCH].
Following a tackle, Dallas Cowboys standout receiver CeeDee Lamb seems to get suffocated by Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith.

Instead of throwing the ball to Cooper, Lamb was pushed to rush to throw it to him.
On a happier note, Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper told a comical anecdote about a crucial moment in the team’s win over the Vikings when he was with Lamb. Cooper Rush was pushed by Lamb to design a play for him instead of Cooper, but the veteran receiver declined.
“Oh yeah, I mean, I mean, as a receiver, I’ve got a humorous story for you, so I might as well share it, so I came back in the huddle.” I… Nokia News – Quick Recap
