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.
He suffered the injury during the Cowboys' touchdown drive in the third quarter on Thursday night in the preseason opener, but did not leave the game until after Tyson Thompson scored on a short run.
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.
