What kind of player can the Cowboys expect when Travis Frederick returns from his illness?

Kevin Sherrington, sports columnist for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks and local college sports in a live chat Thursday. Here are some highlights.Q: Whenever Travis Frederick does return to the field -- can he get back to being the Pro Bowl center he was before his medical issues?Sherrington: There's no way of knowing that yet. He's just now getting feeling to return to his hands. His feet are still numb. Most of the victims of Guillain-Barre syndrome return to normal lives. But most don't play in the NFL. His...

Report: Travis Frederick has regained sensation in his hands

Report: Travis Frederick has regained sensation in his hands

Another step in the right direction. Travis Frederick was dealt a surprising hand shortly before the Dallas Cowboys season began when he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. We haven’t seen Frederick this season as a result of his illness and back in early October the team officially placed him on injured reserve. Dallas has maintained optimism throughout this process, but from the very start it was unlikely that Travis would play football this season, and quite honestly the top priority was his health. According to a report from The Dallas Morning News, Frederick has reached a...

Cowboys C Travis Frederick regains sensation in his hands: "There is some light at the end of the tunnel''

Travis Frederick isn't close to returning to the field for the Cowboys. But there has been an encouraging development in his return from Guillain-Barre syndrome.The Pro Bowl center recently regained sensation in his hands for the first time in nearly three months."It's starting to come back in my hands a little bit here, which is good,'' Frederick said. "Now it's more just numbness, no tingling, and it's more in the tips."I mean the fact there is some light at the end of the tunnel is definitely a positive.''Frederick was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre, an auto immune disease that weakens the...

Hours after win at Philadelphia, Cowboys serve Thanksgiving meals at Salvation Army centers in Dallas and Fort Worth

The Cowboys' charter returned from Philadelphia at about 4:30 a.m. on Monday. Just seven hours later, a dozen Cowboys players served early Thanksgiving lunches at the Salvation Army's Carr P. Collins Social Service Center in Dallas, while Cowboys rookies did likewise at Fort Worth's Salvation Army Mabee Social Service Center."Thank you for winning last night," one of the roughly 400 diners in Dallas shouted out as Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Travis Frederick and Byron Jones, among other players, entered the cafeteria area, donning aprons."Anytime you beat Philadelphia, we love it," another...

Cowboys news: OL Coach Alexander fired, Marc Columbo promoted

The Dallas front office addresses more offseason mistakes. Never content to let a bye week go by without some breaking news, the Dallas Cowboys’ brain-trust made another major move Monday, dismissing offensive line coach Paul Alexander after less than a half season with the team. We have all the news. Dallas Cowboys fire offensive line coach Paul Alexander - Todd Archer, ESPNAn insider view of the situation. Alexander came to the Cowboys with a strong reputation as a teacher and inherited a line that included three Pro Bowlers -- Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin. He also...

Cowboys should have demoted coach Paul Alexander, or his techniques, during the bye week

Cowboys should have demoted coach Paul Alexander, or his techniques, during the bye week

Has anyone done a worse coaching job than Paul Alexander this season? What is happening to the Cowboys offensive line? Who is this guy posing as Tyron Smith? What in the world is up with La’el Collins’ footwork? Why is Zack Martin pointing out a blitzing linebacker and failing to pick it up? Somebody save Connor Williams from being flattened! Can this line just not function without Travis Frederick? These are common phrases uttered by anyone who has watched the Cowboys offensive line play football in this 2018 season. We’ve beaten up the players themselves for their hand in this...

Are the struggles along the Cowboys' offensive line solely due to Travis Frederick's absence?

Jean-Jacques Taylor, Cowboys insider for NBC 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth (KXAS-TV) and host of J Dub City 9 a.m.-1 p.m. weekdays on 103.3 KESN-FM, answered your questions in a recent live chat. Here are some highlights, edited for clarity:Will we be calling Michael Gallup the Cowboys' best receiver by the time this season is over?JJT: All Michael Gallup needs is seasonings, and he's going to be a really nice player for the Cowboys. But the best receiver on the Cowboys had better be Amari Cooper since they just sent a first-round pick to the Raiders for the 24-year-old receiver. He's had two...

Stephen Jones: We’ve had an extended amount of success with our number one draft picks

The Cowboys are proud of their own. There are definitely things to be proud of during the Jason Garrett era of the Dallas Cowboys, and how they’ve drafted in the first round is high atop that list. Dallas has landed Tyron Smith, Morris Claiborne (it got nice at the end), Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, Byron Jones, Ezekiel Elliott, Taco Charlton, and now Leighton Vander Esch in the first round over the last eight years. The four that can were all given second contracts with the team, although obviously Mo Claiborne’s was of the one-year variety. What’s more is the Cowboys already...

Travis Frederick’s absence may be felt even more during road games

Travis Frederick’s absence may be felt even more during road games

The Cowboys center is the center of communication. Before they dropped 40 points on the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, the Cowboys offense was literally one of the worst units that the club had fielded in franchise history. Scoring points, even gaining yards, felt like pulling teeth for this team. The aforementioned explosion does seem to give hope that more could be on the way, but it’s hard to fully believe off of one game. This season many have suggested that the reason for the offensive struggles in Dallas has been the absence of Travis Frederick. Fredbeard is on injured reserve as...
