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 (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.
Frazier's shoulder popped out of its socket during Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals, but X-rays showed no damage and he is not expected to miss time, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Fortunately for Frazier, the Cowboys' training staff was able to pop the shoulder back into place, so the defensive back will likely just have to manage the pain for the time being. Additionally, while Frazier may not miss any practice time, chances are the Cowboys will limit his activity this week.
Frazier skipped a practice Saturday due to a leg issue, but it appears the issue was minor and he's no worse for the wear. Now back in action, the second-year safety should challenge for some snaps again after playing 221 defensively and 261 on special teams a season ago.
