BREAKING: Cowboys Star Releases Grave News on Health Status

Since being selected in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys, Travis Frederick has become one of the most outstanding offensive linemen in the National Football League. However, the past several weeks have seen Frederick indisposed due to a shoulder injury that left him with “stingers”. Now, it appears that Frederick has bigger problems to deal with.

Wednesday evening, Frederick made a post to his Twitter account announcing that he has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the nerves. Frederick states that he has received two treatments over the past 48 hours, and will continue treatment over the next several days.

“I am very optimistic about my condition and the immediate future, as I have been told that the illness was detected at a fairly early stage,” wrote Frederick. “My doctors have told me that it is not possible to determine a time table for a return to the field right now, but I am hopeful that I will be able to play as soon as possible.”
