DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Cowboys placed center Travis Frederick and wide receiver Terrance Williams on injured reserve and activated defensive tackle David Irving from the suspended list on Saturday.  

Frederick has been out the entire season as he continues to recover from Guillain-Barre syndrome, an auto-immune disease that affects the nervous system. The Cowboys elected to keep Frederick on the active roster due to the uncertainty surrounding the timetable of his recovery. Frederick recently indicated that once he overcomes GBS, it's highly unlikely to plague him again. In the meantime, he's remained with the team, in meetings and on the sideline, serving essentially as an assistant coach. He's eligible to return in week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Williams missed practice all week with what the team originally described as a "non-injury" related absence. Dallas reversed course Thursday and listed Williams with a foot injury before placing him on IR with the same ailment. Williams is also eligible to return in December, however, he could still be suspended by the NFL after being arrested for public intoxication back in May.

Despite being activated, Irving is still away from the team dealing with a personal family matter.
