The Dallas Cowboys held their breath on Sunday night when safety Kavon Frazier exited the game with what was listed as a left shoulder injury.
Frazier was the second safety to go down in as many games for the Cowboys as Xavier Woods suffered a hamstring injury last week against the Cincinnati Bengals.
This left Jeff Heath as the lone safety whom the Cowboys can depend on inside two weeks to regular season action, any serious injury to Frazier would send whatever plans they do have at the position group down a direction they likely didn’t expect.
Thankfully there appears to be no serious damage to Kavon’s shoulder, and he’s not expected to miss any time. This is incredible news.
Cowboys S Kavon Frazier said his left shoulder popped out of socket and they were able to pop it back in. X-rays showed no damage, he said. He said he won't miss any time, may have to play wearing a shoulder harness.— Brandon George (@DMN_George) August 27, 2018
While Kavon won’t miss time that still leaves he and Heath as the only established safeties who will be on the roster come Week 1. Xavier Woods could miss the opener due to his hamstring problem, and no other player has locked down a spot on the roster.
There are options for the Cowboys. They can go after a free agent (they signed two last week) or they could trade for someone (yes, obviously him). We’ll see how they handle things this week, but thankfully everything appears to be fine regarding Kavon Frazier.
