Kavon Frazier announced his retirement on Friday in a heart felt message via his personal Twitter account as he plans to pursue his passion for entrepreneurship.
Frazier was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He spent his first four seasons there where he made an impact on defense and special teams. In 2020 he appeared in 15 games for the Dolphins before most recently making stops to Cincinnati and Las Vegas. This would of marked Fraziers 7th season in the NFL, but ultimately he decided to retire from football to spend more time with his family and pursue multiple business ventures.
Frazier exited Sunday’s preseason game against the Cardinals after injuring his left shoulder. The shoulder popped out of socket and the medical staff put it back in place. Although he will still undergo an MRI on Monday, X-rays came back negative and the team is optimistic there is no further damage to the shoulder.
It’s great news for the Cowboys who are already thin at safety. While Frazier likely will sit out Thursday’s preseason finale, he is expected to be ready to play in Week 1. If Xavier Woods is still sidelined with a hamstring injury, Frazier will start in his place.
Cowboys safety Kavon Frazier injured his left shoulder in the first quarter against the Cardinals. He went in for x-rays but the results are not yet known.
Frazier returned to the sideline without a wrap or brace on the shoulder and was described as being in good spirits. Frazier started in place of Xavier Woods who is out with a hamstring injury. The Cowboys are very thin at safety so they cannot afford Frazier to be out for long. If the injury is serious, perhaps they make a call to Seattle where Earl Thomas remains a holdout.
Cowboys safety Kavon Frazier passed a physical Thursday and was subsequently removed from the non-football injury list.
Frazier is returning after missing the beginning of training camp while he underwent tests for a blood condition that was discovered in early June. Fortunately, the tests came back normal and he was given the green light to return to practice. Frazier participated during Thursday’s workouts on a limited basis. "Mainly, I've got to eat more vegetables,'' Frazier said after practice. "I've got to take a couple of vitamins a day. That's about it.'' It’s encouraging news for the third-year safety as he projects to be a key part of the depth behind starters Xavier Woods and Jeff Heath. Frazier finished 2017 with 33 tackles and one forced fumble in 15 games.
