"I'm doing pretty well. Things have started to move along in the right direction," Frederick told 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday. "I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to play football at this point this year, but I feel very good about where I'm headed moving into next year."
In August, Frederick was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, an autoimmune disease that weakens muscles and attacks the body's nervous system.
"I have certainly made progress, but at this point in the season, having not been able to do my football movements. ... Even if I was 100 percent strength-wise to be able to come back and play. ... I'm still six or eight weeks out from that," Frederick said.
The Cowboys lead the NFC East with a 7-5 record. They placed Frederick on injured reserve in early October, and Joe Looney has taken over at center in relief of the four-time Pro Bowler.
