Fans of the Dallas Cowboys will not like the latest update concerning starting center Travis Frederick.
It has been revealed that Frederick has gone to see several neck/spine specialists and will be seeing more in the coming days and weeks. To make things worse, head coach Jason Garrett would not reveal why he was seeing more doctors.
Cowboys C Travis Frederick saw one of the nation's top spine/neck doctors in California in Dr. Robert Watkins III and now the Cowboys have him seeing more specialists locally. Jason Garrett declined to explain why it's necessary for Frederick to see more specialists.

Frederick went to visit Dr. Robert Watkins for consultation on stingers he suffered at camp on Tuesday, but that appointment clearly was not enough to make the pain go away. Frederick was involved in a fight during practice about two weeks ago, but that does not appear to have anything to do with his latest injury.
A pessimist might see this as somewhat troubling. https://t.co/nAvKE4z1FP

The Cowboys have dealt with a few of bumps and bruises on their line already, as Maliek Collins is currently nursing a broken foot and David Irving has been suspended for the first four games of the 2018-19 season. Frederick has the second most guaranteed money of any center in the NFL, so his absence from the field stings that much more for Jerry Jones and company.
