NEW YORK (AP) — Injuries are never an excuse. Not for players. Not for coaches. And not for fans.
Still, the NFL teams that have the most success almost always keep their best players on the field.
For some teams such as Atlanta, Jacksonville and Cincinnati, injuries were a factor in derailing their seasons.
Others, such as the defending champion Eagles, have dealt with several injuries to key players and have managed to stay in the playoff race going into the final week of the regular season.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Travis Frederick at first stayed engaged with his teammates because the Dallas Cowboys center wasn't sure how long he would be out with a neurological disorder diagnosed during training camp.
By the time new offensive line coach Marc Colombo offered him a headset after Colombo was promoted as part of a midseason change, Frederick figured, "What the heck." And by then, it had become increasingly clear the four-time Pro Bowler was unlikely to play this year.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Zack Martin can't pinpoint why the Dallas offensive line was better in consecutive road wins after a mostly rugged first half of the season.
The Cowboys right guard has a few options: time to adjust to the season-long absence of fellow Pro Bowler Travis Frederick, a steady showing from Xavier Su'a-Filo at left guard for injured rookie Connor Williams or the position coaching change to former Dallas lineman Marc Colombo.
HOUSTON (AP) — Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller and receivers Will Fuller and Keke Coutee are all active against the Dallas Cowboys despite dealing with injuries.
Miller dealt with a chest injury this week and Fuller and Coutee had hamstring injuries. Cornerback Aaron Colvin and linebacker Brian Peters are out on Sunday night with ankle injuries.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Four-time Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick was placed on the non-football illness list by the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday 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.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has been ruled out Sunday against Detroit because of a hamstring injury, and defensive tackle Maliek Collins will be sidelined for a second straight week by a knee injury.
Lee's absence means he will have missed at least one game because of injury in eight of his nine NFL seasons. The only exception was Lee's All-Pro season of 2016 when he sat out a meaningless finale against Philadelphia after the Cowboys had clinched the NFC East title.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The post-Dez Bryant/Jason Witten era in Dallas got off to a rocky start on Sunday.
The Cowboys were clearly missing a go-to wide receiver on the outside, a presence at tight end and leadership on the offensive line without 2016 All-Pro center Travis Frederick, who is battling Guillain Barre syndrome. The result was a lackluster performance and a 16-8 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the season opener.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — While Travis Frederick has no idea when his football career will resume, the Dallas Cowboys center is just relieved that he found out what was wrong when he was diagnosed with a nerve disorder.
The four-time Pro Bowler doesn't want to say that his presence on the active roster, rather than injured reserve, means he could come back sooner than the eight weeks required by an IR designation.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Travis Frederick will not go on injured reserve initially as he battles a condition that affects the nervous system, although the Dallas Cowboys still don't have a timetable for the return of their four-time Pro Bowl center.
Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Frederick hasn't had any "drastic setbacks" while getting treated for Guillain-Barre syndrome. The disorder attacks nerves and causes weakness in various parts of the body.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have claimed safety Ibraheim Campbell and center Adam Redmond off waivers to address two positions that need depth because of injuries.
Dallas also signed defensive end Charles Tapper to the practice squad Sunday, a day after waiving the fourth-round draft pick from 2016.
Campbell, a fourth-year player, was in training camp with Houston before getting waived. The second-year pro Redmond was with Buffalo.
DALLAS COWBOYS (9-7)
New faces: LB Leighton Vander Esch, G Connor Williams, WR Allen Hurns, WR/KR Tavon Austin, WR Michael Gallup, LB Joe Thomas, DT Jihad Ward, T Cameron Fleming, TE Dalton Schultz, WR Deonte Thompson.
Key losses: TE Jason Witten, WR Dez Bryant, LB Anthony Hitchens, CB Orlando Scandrick, WR Brice Butler, WR/KR Ryan Switzer, TE James Hanna, RB Alfred Morris.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — A year ago, Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Joe Looney grabbed the spotlight during training camp as the prankster who took the field in star running back Ezekiel Elliott's jersey, his cover blown by the gut sticking out under No. 21.
Now that Looney has become the starting center under the serious circumstances of Travis Frederick's battle against a rare neurological disorder, the career backup plans to keep his sense of humor.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys center Travis Frederick said Wednesday he has been diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder that causes weakness in various parts of the body, and the four-time Pro Bowl player isn't sure on a timetable for a return.
Frederick said he has received two treatments for Guillain-Barre Syndrome over the past 48 hours and that the treatments will continue for several days.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — No team has invested more draft capital in the offensive line the past few years than the Dallas Cowboys, and the investment in the trenches has paid off in a major way.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Dallas offensive line led by All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith has been voted the top line in the NFL by an Associated Press panel.
The Cowboys' group that featured three All-Pros last season in Smith, center Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin, received four of 11 first-place votes and 94 of a possible 110 points. The voting released Friday was done by Hall of Fame receiver James Lofton and 10 AP football writers.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Ezekiel Elliott finally had his first breakaway run of the season in Week 3 at Arizona, then lost 8 yards on his last carry with Dallas trying to run out the clock in a 28-17 win.
At least the Cowboys and their 2016 NFL rushing leader could say they bounced back solidly from Elliott's worst game as a pro in a loss to Denver.
