Free agent C Travis Swanson visited the Jets on Friday.

It's his first known visit. Swanson struggled over 11 starts for the Lions last season, earning PFF's No. 31 grade among 38 qualified centers. He'd give the Jets some depth behind starter Spencer Long.

The Lions are not expected to re-sign impending free agent C Travis Swanson.

Swanson has missed 11 games over the last three seasons and has a troubling concussion history that has ended each of his past two seasons. When on the field last year, Swanson was one of Pro Football Focus' worst centers. The Lions are expected to move forward with Graham Glasgow at the pivot.

Lions placed C Travis Swanson on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

Per beat writer Kyle Meinke, Swanson suffered a setback. He was originally concussed Week 14 and hasn't played since. This comes after Swanson missed the final five games of last season with a brain injury. The former 2104 third-rounder has real health concerns heading into free agency in March.

Lions C Travis Swanson (concussion) will not play Week 15 against the Bears.

Lions C Travis Swanson is in the concussion protocol.

Swanson played every snap against the Bucs, so his symptoms apparently showed up after the game. With the Lions playing on Saturday, it is unlikely he is able to get cleared in time, especially considering he missed the final five games of last year due to a concussion. Graham Glasgow will fill in if Swanson cannot play.

Lions C Travis Swanson (ankle) is questionable for Week 3 against the Falcons.

Lions C Travis Swanson (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game.
