Travis Frederick ready to 'knock the rust off' in return from Guillain-Barré

  • 4:56 AM ET. THE COLONY, Texas – When training camp begins in late July in Oxnard, California, Dallas Cowboys center Travis Frederick plans to do all he can after he missed all of the 2018 season dealing with Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune disease that affects the nervous system.
  • Frederick has gone through the early parts of the offseason program, including the teaching sessions the past two weeks, but he will not go through team drills in the upcoming OTAs and mandatory minicamp in June because of shoulder surgery performed after the 2018 season.
  • Dallas Cowboys Center Travis Frederick and his teammates as they trade in their uniforms and helmets for clubs and tees to become celebrity golfers for an evening at Topgolf The Colony.
  • “I’m just getting to the end of the quote-unquote recovery program, if you will, for a shoulder,” Frederick said.
  • One of the more profound moments in his return, Frederick said, came late last season when he stubbed his toe, which let him know his feelings were returning.
  • Teammates appreciated Frederick staying around the team last season even as he had difficulty walking because of the atrophy in his hip and leg muscles.
  • Frederick said the shoulder issue arose in the first two years of his career but the muscles stabilized the joint and prevented any dislocations.
