Dallas Cowboys center Travis Frederick was selected for his fifth Pro Bowl this week. That comes despite him being barely a year removed from not being able to lift weights because of an autoimmune disorder that attacks the nervous system. Frederick hadn’t missed a game in his five-year career when he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome during training camp last year. It wasn’t clear at the time how long he would be out, but Frederick ended up missing the entire season. He is now fully recovered an again playing at an elite level after so much uncertainty.
