Cowboys’ Free, Carter ruled out vs. Giants

Irving, TX ( – The Dallas Cowboys will be without
offensive tackle Doug Free when they host the New York Giants in an NFC East
clash on Sunday.

Free, who hasn’t missed a game since the start of the 2009 season, fractured
his foot during Sunday’s 30-23 win at Seattle and is expected to miss 3-to-4

Linebacker Bruce Carter will miss his third straight game as he recovers from
a thigh injury.

Defensive end Jack Crawford (calf) is listed as doubtful, while quarterback
Tony Romo (back/ankle) and running back DeMarco Murray (illness) are listed as
probable after fully practicing on Thursday and Friday.
