Cowboys OL Travis Frederick, who is recovering from Guillain-Barre syndrome, said that he has begun regaining feelings in his hands.
“It’s starting to come back in my hands a little bit here, which is good,” Frederick said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “Now it’s more just numbness, no tingling, and it’s more in the tips.”
Albert Breer says his feeling regarding Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley is that the Cowboys are probably the one team he’d leave his current job for.
Breer notes that Jones family has a relationship with Riley, who recruited Jerry’s grandson.

After dealing with ankle and shoulder injuries, Redskins RB Adrian Peterson says he now feels “amazing” and getting closer to being 100 percent.
“I’m feeling good. Last week I actually started feeling all the way healthy,” Peterson said, via the Washington Post. “My shoulder, I’m back to bench pressing. I hadn’t did that in three weeks. So, I’m back to kind of doing the normal things that I was able to do. My ankle is feeling good. My body is just kind of feeling refreshed. The second half has been a blessing to me. [It was] a grind the first eight weeks and here now, as I stand in front of you guys, my body is feeling amazing. That’s big [considering] that we just started the second stretch and we have a big game coming up.”
