Mac Engel update on Doug Free.
Rookie tackle Doug Free has suffered a slight sprain of his right MCL, but the injury will not require surgery. He will miss some time, but is expected to be ready for the start of the season.
Free went to the Cowboys practice facility today for treatment as well as an MRI. Free told people if he had to play or practice he could.
Good news, he’ll be OK. Bad news, he’ll miss time getting reps in live action games. Good news, he looked good before the injury, might be a real find. Bad news, we have three tackles with tender knees.
