Cowboys C Travis Frederick (Guillain-Barré syndrome) said during an interview with 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday that he likely won’t return this season, but he hopes to back in 2019.
“I’m doing pretty well. Things have started to move along in the right direction,” Frederick said, via NFL.com. “I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to play football at this point this year, but I feel very good about where I’m headed moving into next year.”
“I have certainly made progress, but at this point in the season, having not been able to do my football movements. … even if I was 100 percent strength-wise to be able to come back and play. … I’m still six or eight weeks out from that,” Frederick added.
