DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) — Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says right tackle Doug Free will miss three to four weeks with a right foot fracture.

“It’s usually a 3 to 4 week injury,” said Jones with Shan & RJ on 105.3 The Fan. “Because of the position he plays, which is not a position that would align to compensate some, he might be back sooner.”
Free told Cowboys coaches on Monday morning that he believes he can play, according to 105.3 The Fan’s Mike Fisher. But Jones believes that tackle Jermey Parnell will likely fill in for Free against the Giants this week.
“We’ve got Parnell there that is dealing with some ribs, but still really held a good account of himself the few plays he played in the game. Got a lot of confidence in him.”
