Draft Scout Doug Free News
10/23/14 - RT Doug Free is out for a second week with a fractured foot. He is expected to miss three to four weeks.
10/13/14 - OT Doug Free could miss three to four weeks due to a sprained right foot. Free hurt the middle of his foot with 3:23 left in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks on a 6-yard run by RB DeMarco Murray. Jeremy Parnell replaced Free and helped pave the way for Murray's 15-yard touchdown run on the next play. Parnell played five snaps before Free returned for the victory formation kneel-down to end the game.
Free has started 77 consecutive games, but that streak is in jeopardy. The Cowboys have four games remaining before their bye week, including a Nov. 9 game against Jacksonville in London.
09/03/13 - RT Dough Free talked for the first time Monday about the team's decision to use him as a backup plan at guard -- a position he has never played before not even going back to high school. Free said he is willing to do whatever he can to help the team and doesn't know if he will start at guard or tackle in the season opener against the Giants Sunday. He took first team reps at both positions on Monday.
11/20/12 - RT Doug Free has given up 4.5 sacks. He has three holding penalties and seven false starts. He has severely regressed this season. Coach Jason Garrett blames it on Free's passive demeanor and says he doesn't have enough bite to his game at times. Free agrees that he needs to be more aggressive.
"I'm confident. I know I can go out there and play every week," the Cowboys' right tackle said. "I think he just wants me to be more aggressive out on the edge, more solid. I had a few plays, gave up some pressures, and that's unacceptable. You can't have that. Tough game like that, every play counts. We need every play."
09/24/12 - RT Doug Free has been one of the surprising members of the offensive line who is struggling. Free was supposed to be someone the Cowboys could count on but he has been inconsistent in his blocking and has had too many penalties. "I think he needs to be firmer," coach Jason Garrett said. "There were times in the ballgame, the defensive end got into him and knocked him back. But there were other times he regained his anchor and sat in there and blocked him pretty well. Being consistent and not getting pushed back into the quarterback would be first and foremost. There were a couple of other things that came up that led to some pressures and some hurries on the quarterback, but that's across the board. I can go through every player on our team and pick out a lot of different things and what we try to do as coaches when they leave today is give them things to focus on."
