Dal­las’ Fred­er­ick put on ill­ness list

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - FOR THE RECORD -

Four-time Pro Bowl cen­ter Travis Fred­er­ick was placed on the non­foot­ball ill­ness list by the Dal­las Cow­boys be­cause of a nerve con­di­tion that has kept him from play­ing this sea­son.

The team also put re­ceiver Ter­rance Williams on in­jured re­serve be­cause of a foot in­jury.

Those moves cleared two spots on the ac­tive ros­ter be­fore Sun­day’s game at NRG Sta­dium against the Tex­ans. One will be filled by de­fen­sive line­man David Irv­ing in his re­turn from a fourgame sus­pen­sion for vi­o­lat­ing the NFL’'s sub­stance abuse pol­icy, but the team said he didn’t make the trip and wouldn’t play against the Tex­ans.

Fred­er­ick was di­ag­nosed dur­ing the pre­sea­son with Guil­lain-Barre syn­drome. The Cow­boys ini­tially kept him on the ac­tive ros­ter, but now he will miss at least eight more weeks. He could re­turn the fi­nal month of the reg­u­lar sea­son.

Williams will also miss at least eight weeks. In other NFL news: Bears de­fen­sive end
