Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system, sapped most of Frederick’s strength and left him struggling to walk when the Cowboys returned from camp in California last summer.

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Travis Frederick’s first day in pads after a year of battling back from a nerve disorder wasn’t particularly emotional for the Dallas Cowboys center. Those moments came earlier, like when Frederick hit a personal best in the weight room. Frederick lost much of strength in battling the condition during training camp last year. Now the four-time Pro Bowler waits to see how he reacts when he gets in a game for the first time in 20 months.
