Free agent DT Sean Lissemore is visiting the Falcons on Wednesday.

Lissemore missed all of last season after getting hurt early in training camp. Turning 30 later this year, this is the first visit for Lissemore in free agency.

Chargers placed NT Sean Lissemore on injured reserve.

Lissemore got hurt early in camp and didn't play in San Diego's exhibition opener. He was replaced in the offseason by ex-Seahawk Brandon Mebane and was ticketed for a reserve role. Lissemore's loss is a blow to the Chargers' depth.

The San Diego Union Tribune expects the Chargers to use NT Sean Lissemore at multiple spots.

The Chargers attacked their defensive line this offseason, signing Brandon Mebane to start at nose tackle and drafting Joey Bosa at No. 3 overall. Lissemore will be the top reserve behind Mebane, Bosa, and RE Corey Liuget.

NT Sean Lissemore left the Chargers' Week 11 game against the Chiefs with a concussion and will not return.

He left in the second quarter after recording one tackle. Ryan Carrethers is the backup nose tackle.

Chargers NT Sean Lissemore (ankle) is "fully expected" to be ready for Week 1.

Lissemore was controversially chop blocked in last weekend's preseason game, but avoided serious injury. It's excellent news for the Bolts, who have precious little depth behind Lissemore.

Chargers DL Sean Lissemore suffered an ankle injury in Friday night's preseason game against Seattle.

Lissemore got hurt on San Diego's first defensive series. He'll likely need to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury. The Chargers can't afford to lose Lissemore given their lack of depth at nose tackle. Kwame Geathers and rookie Ryan Carrethers are behind Lissemore on the depth chart.

Chargers acquired DL Sean Lissemore from the Cowboys in exchange for a 2015 seventh-round draft pick.

Lissemore was a bad fit for the Cowboys' new 4-3 defense, so he'll join DC Chuck Pagano's 3-4 scheme in San Diego. At 6-foot-3, 298, he's best-suited to play one of the end spots. In 329 snaps with the Cowboys last season, Lissemore recorded 35 tackles and one sack. He'll be the top backup to Kendall Reyes and Corey Liuget. Lissemore showed promise as a run stopper in 2011.

According to ESPN Dallas, the Cowboys are "looking at" moving DL Sean Lissemore from end to tackle in new DC Monte Kiffin's 4-3 defense.

Lissemore has extensive experience at both positions, so it would be a natural switch. Playing mostly end in 2012, Lissemore notched 35 tackles and a sack in 329 snaps over 10 games. Due just $630,000 in 2013, and only $3.63 million through 2016, Lissemore is a valuable reserve for Big D.
Tue, Feb 12, 2013 01:49:00 PM

Cowboys DL Sean Lissemore has been diagnosed with a high right ankle sprain, and is out for Week 7.

A key reserve capable of playing both end and tackle, Lissemore could miss 3-4 games. His absence will test Dallas' already questionable depth. Lissemore has played heavy snaps this season, notching 20 tackles in five games.
Mon, Oct 15, 2012 04:52:00 PM

Although X-rays were negative, Cowboys DL Sean Lissemore believes he suffered a high right ankle sprain in Week 6.

This can be a month-or-more injury. A key end/tackle reserve, Lissemore has 20 tackles through five games, making two starts. Just as it appeared to be getting healthy, the Cowboys' defensive line has taken another significant blow.
Sun, Oct 14, 2012 09:24:00 PM

Cowboys DL Sean Lissemore suffered a first-quarter right ankle injury in Week 6 and is done for the day.

X-rays apparently revealed the sprain as opposed to a fracture. So we wonder if Lissemore has a high ankle sprain. The Cowboys got Jay Ratliff and Kenyon Coleman back this week, but Lissemore is their top D-Line reserve.
Sun, Oct 14, 2012 01:34:00 PM

Cowboys signed DL Sean Lissemore to a three-year, $6 million contract extension.

"That's a steal for them," one unnamed agent told ESPN Dallas. A reserve lineman capable of playing both end and tackle, Lissemore appeared in all 16 games in 2011, but made zero starts. He played only 273 snaps, but was highly productive on a per-play basis, and is expected to see heavier playing time this season. A Cowboys team that lacks depth in a few crucial areas has now locked up a nice piece of it along the defensive line. The Cowboys view Lissemore as a future starter.

Cowboys DL Sean Lissemore was limited in OTAs and minicamp by a rib injury, but is expected to be healthy for training camp.

"Is he going to be behind for where he wanted to be in training camp? Yes," DL coach Brian Baker said. "But is he going to be too far behind to compete to get one of those solid rotation roles, which is what I expect of him? No." The Dallas Morning News opined in June that Lissemore "seems certain" to play more than the 273 snaps he saw in 2011 this season.
Sat, Jul 7, 2012 01:06:00 PM

According to the Dallas Morning News, it "seems certain" Cowboys DL Sean Lissemore will have an expanded role this season.

Lissemore played just 273 snaps in 2011, but acquitted himself well, especially against the run. He saw time at both end and tackle. "He’s so fast for the game now," DC Rob Ryan said. "The nice thing if we ever get in a situation where God forbid somebody gets hurt, (he) can jump in in any spot and be an effective starter."
