Report: Cowboys running blood tests on Kavon Frazier with regards to potential clotting

New, comments

An update on Kavon Frazier.

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys have four players whom they’ve given designations to as they begin training camp. Maliek Collins is on PUP, David Irving is on the did not report list, and both Randy Gregory and Kavon Frazier wound up on the non-football injury list.

Gregory’s presence on this list wasn’t shocking. We’ve known that his road back to regular contributions is a long one and have been expecting this. For Frazier to land on NFI was definitely surprising.

Late Wednesday night a report surfaced from the Dallas Morning News that offered some explanation. It seems that the Cowboys may believe Kavon Frazier has a disease related to blood clotting.

Health situations like this can vary in levels of severity, right now we don’t have any idea what this is or isn’t. It’s a good thing that the Cowboys are aware of this and doing the research that they can, but it goes without saying that it could have an impact on Kavon.

We all hope and want the best for Kavon Frazier, but this could significantly influence the state of the safety position for the Cowboys. They’re already somewhat thin and have been linked to Earl Thomas on more than one occasion. Results from what happens with Kavon will likely influence their next move.

Hopefully all is well with Kavon Frazier. We’ll keep you updated here at BTB as more information becomes available.

Update: 11:47pm ET

The Athletic’s Calvin Watkins reported that the tests are for complications that could be tied to a minor knee surgery that Kavon had six months ago.
