Frederick (illness) is "doubtful" to retake the field this season, Jeff Cavanaugh of The Athletic reports.
Frederick is likely to miss the entire 2018 season as he manages his recovery from Guillain-Barre syndrome, an autoimmune disorder with a high amount of variability in terms of a recovery timetable. The Cowboys remain optimistic that the starting center will eventually make a full return to football, but Frederick appears to be looking ahead to 2019.
Frederick (illness) has regained sensation in his hands, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Frederick continues to manage his recovery from Guillain-Barre syndrome, and has reportedly regained feeling in his hands for the first time in nearly three months. The starting center does not yet have sensation in his feet, but his progress is encouraging. "I'm doing good," Frederick said. "I'm getting better, slowly but steady." The veteran center anticipates a full return to football in the future, but it's difficult to imagine that Frederick will play this season.
Frederick (illness) is hopeful that he will be able to play again this season, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Frederick, who was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome, was placed on injured reserve last week. While he is optimistic about a return, he is not eligible to play again until Week 10's matchup with the Eagles.
Frederick, who is dealing with Guillain-Barre syndrome, will be eligible to return off IR for the final three weeks of the season if his health allows it. Joe Looney will continue to replace him at center in the starting unit.
