Cowboys May Place Travis Frederick on Injured Reserve

Published

The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly leaning towards placing starting center Travis Frederick on injured reserve although no final decision has been made, according to the Star Telegram’s Clarence Hill.

Frederick, 27, was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome before the start of the season and was not placed on injured reserve by the team as they were holding out hope that Frederick could return prior to Week 8.

Frederick is a 4-time Pro Bowler and was reportedly still experiencing numbness in both arms in early September, further jeopardizing his chances of returning this season.

Three takeaways from the Detroit Lions third loss of the season to the Dallas Cowboys

Published

on

1. Ezekiel Elliott ran all over the defense

Elliott ran for 152 yards and had 88 receiving yards on the Lions this week. He averaged 6.1 yards a carry and there were some plays where there were humongous holes for him to go through. Zeke also had himself a day catching the ball because he took a screen pass for a touchdown and had the game sealing catch late in the 4th quarter. While the Lions knew that Elliott was going to be their main source of offense, there was nothing they could do about it.

2. Missed opportunities truly was the difference in this game

Late in the 4th quarter, the Lions had two plays where if they would’ve made the plays, they would be looking at being 2-2 instead of 1-3. One of them was a dropped interception by Glover Quinn when Dak Prescott tried to throw it over the middle and Quinn was spying on the play and read it perfectly. The second play was the play right before Zeke’s big catch where they made Dak Prescott fumble and nobody could get on the ball or sack him. If those plays were made, the outcome definitely would’ve been different.

3.  Most of Bob Quinn’s draft picks are starting to show their colors

Players like Da’Shawn Hand, Kenny Golladay, and Kerryon Johnson are starting to show that they are solid draft picks made by Bob Quinn. They all made an impact this game and all of their futures look bright. Hand finished with a sack and a forced fumble. Golladay had four catches for 74 yards. And last but not least, that can definitely be emphasized for Kerryon Johnson, who absolutely bulldozed over a safety to get his 1st touchdown.

This game was a tough one for the Lions. They tried to comeback at the last second and it didn’t end up working out. This always seems to be the trend with the Lions and it either goes their way or it doesn’t and this week, it didn’t. While things do look bright for the draft picks the Lions have taken the past few years, it does need to lead to victories and not “what if” games. The next game against the Green Bay Packers at home will probably determine where the rest of this season is going.
