Frazer recently underwent minor knee surgery and is expected to miss the remainder of the Cowboys' offseason program, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Frazier wasn't reported to have dealt with a knee injury last season, so it's unclear if he developed the issue earlier in the offseason or during OTAs. In any case, the safety is expected to be back at full strength for training camp.
Frazier didn't log a defensive snap in Saturday's playoff loss to the Rams. When Xavier Woods missed the first two games with a hamstring injury, Frazier worked a starter's role. After Woods returned, Frazier was relegated to reserve duties and recorded more than six defensive snaps just twice. Woods and Jeff Heath are under contract for next season, so Frazier will likely return in a similar role.
Frazier participated fully in Wednesday's practice. Frazier missed some time during the practices leading up to Week 1, but he has yet to miss a game because of the shoulder issue and has racked up eight tackles and a sack between the first two weeks. He should suit up again Sunday against the Seahawks.
Frazier (shoulder) logged a full practice Friday and is expected to suit up Sunday against the Panthers despite being listed as questionable, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports. Frazier provides key depth in the Cowboys secondary as a backup to starting strong safety Jeff Heath. If the former suffers a setback and is forced to miss Sunday's contest, look for Ibraheim Campbell to see an increased role.
Frazier (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports. Frazier has been consistently limited in practice after his shoulder popped out of its socket during Dallas' third preseason game against the Cardinals. Since X-rays showed no damage, it's likely that the Cowboys are simply taking a cautious approach to Frazier's health as Sunday's season-opener against the Panthers approaches.
