The Dallas Cowboys put safety Kavon Frazier on the non-football injury list because of concerns of a blood disorder that could cause problems if he suffers an injury, per sources.

The team performed blood tests on Frazier on Wednesday to determine if he has an issue that could keep his blood from clotting. He underwent more tests on Thursday, coach Jason Garrett said.

Frazier said everything is going to be fine. But he also posted a scripture to his Twitter account.

“He’s going to continue to get some tests done today and

hopefully it will get resolved here in the next couple of days,” Garrett said. “He just can’t go out on the
practice field but he’s been in meetings and taking part in everything.

Again such a disorder could cause problems if he suffers an injury.

The Cowboys don’t think it’s serious but are erring on the side of caution.

Frazier, a 2016 sixth-round pick from Central Michigan, is expected to compete with Jeff Heath for the starting spot at strong safety.

Frazier played in 15 games in 2017, registering 33 tackles and a forced fumble.

The situation could reignite talks of a potential trade for Seattle safety Earl Thomas.
