Travis Frederick Doesn't Expect To Play Again This Season

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys center Travis Frederick said at an appearance Tuesday night that he doesn't expect to play again this season.

"I'm doing pretty well. Things have started to move along in the right direction. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to play football at this point this year but I feel very good about where I'm headed moving into next year," Frederick said at the Cowboys Hour. 

Stephen Jones admitted Monday on 105.3 The Fan that Frederick, who's missed the entire season while he continues his treatment for Guillain-Barre Syndrome, is "a long shot" to play again this season. 

"I have certainly made progress, but at this point in the season, having not been able to do my football movements. ... even if I was 100% strength wise to be able to come back and play. ... I'm still six or eight weeks out from that."

Frederick added that early on in the process he believed that he would be able to return this season based on how quickly his body was responding to the treatment he was receiving. 

"Had the progress kept at that pace, I felt like I would have been able to play. So that's part of the reason why I didn't go on IR (injured reserve), originally," Frederick said. 

Dallas placed Frederick on injured reserve on Oct. 6.
