Cowboys Leaning Toward Placing C Travis Frederick On Injured Reserve


Clarence Hill is reporting that the Cowboys are leaning toward placing center Travis Frederick on injured reserve to make room for David Irving, who needs to be added to their active roster.

Hill adds that no final decision has been made, but this is something worth watching today.

The Cowboys made the decision to keep Frederick on the active roster coming out of the preseason, even though there isn’t a definitive timetable for him to return.

Frederick has been diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome, which is a rare disorder in which your body’s immune system attacks your nerves.

Frederick, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2013. He’s entering the third year of his eight-year, $66.56 million that included $26.2 million guaranteed.

Frederick stands to make base salaries of $10 million and $6 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Frederick appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 2 center out of 36 qualifying players.
