Travis Swanson: Hanging up cleats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson announced his retirement from football Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Swanson will call it a career after five seasons in the NFL. The Texas native appeared in 53 games -- starting in all but nine -- for the Lions over his first four seasons in the league. Swanson last played for the Dolphins, starting in 11 of 12 games during the 2018 season.

Dolphins' Travis Swanson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup with New England, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Swanson will draw the start once again after sitting out last week's game against Buffalo. Look for Wesley Johnson to step in if Swanson aggravates the injury during the outing.

Dolphins' Travis Swanson: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.

Swanson continues to nurse an ankle injury initially sustained Nov. 25, making his status for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Patriots murky at best. If the 27-year-old were to remain sidelined Week 14, Wesley Johnson would be in line to draw another start at center.

Dolphins' Travis Swanson: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Swanson returned as a limited practice participant Thursday but was downgraded back to a non-participant Friday. The 27-year-old sustained the injury in last Sunday's game against the Colts, leaving Wesley Johnson to likely take over at center for the Dolphins.

Dolphins' Travis Swanson: Held out of practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (ankle) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Swanson sustained the ankle injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts. Other practices throughout the week will provide clarity as to the Arkansas product's Sunday status. If Swanson isn't able to play Sunday, the Dolphins could call on Sam Young or Sach Sterup.

Dolphins' Travis Swanson: Exits game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts due to an ankle injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Swanson exited the Week 12 contest during the second quarter. With Wesley Johnson (coach's decision) inactive, the Dolphins could call upon Sam Young or Zach Sterup to slot into the starting lineup as long as Swanson remains sidelined.

Dolphins' Travis Swanson: Inks deal with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson re-signed with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Swanson, who was waived by Miami last week, rejoined the team following an injury to John Denney (shoulder) in Week 1's matchup against the Titans. The former third-round pick will work to stick with the 53-man roster this time around.

Travis Swanson: Waived by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Swanson was waived by the Jets during final roster cuts but subsequently was claimed by the Dolphins. However, his time in Miami was short, as they have opted to let him go in favor of adding running back depth. The former third-round pick will now look for a new landing spot.

Jets' Travis Swanson: Inks deal with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Swanson, a former third-round selection of the Lions, spent his first four seasons in Detroit, starting 42 of 53 games during the stint. However, he missed the final six games of last season due to a concussion -- an injury the center now disputes, claiming he instead had a bad reaction to the medicine he received for the injury. The Jets also brought in former Redskins center Spencer Long (quadriceps), who figures to start the season atop the depth chart. However, Long is returning from a torn quadriceps injury last season, which could give Swanson an opportunity to take over starting duties should Long be sidelined heading into training camp.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Misdiagnosed with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson, who ended the 2017 season on injured reserve, claims he did not suffer a concussion, CBS Detroit reports.

Swanson claims he didn't actually suffer a concussion but had a bad reaction to medicine he was given to treat a potential concussion. When he stopped taking the medicine, Swanson said he no longer experienced any concussion-like symptoms. Considering he also suffered a concussion in 2016 and is set to become an unrestricted free agent, it's evident he wants teams to know he doesn't have a history of serious head injuries -- something that could hamper his ability to land a new deal.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Swanson was able to participate fully in Wednesday's practice, but he subsequently suffered a setback at some point, so there's no reason to risk his health in Week 17. Graham Glasgow will likely continue manning the center spot in Swanson's stead.

Lions' Travis Swanson: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (concussion) missed practice Thursday.

Swanson was thought to have been close to clearing concussion protocol after logging a full practice Wednesday, but his total lack of availability Thursday seemingly nullifies that notion. He still has Friday to prove his health, or else the fourth-year center will likely end the 2017 campaign having logged three consecutive DNPs.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Returns in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (concussion) was a full participant at the Lions' practice Wednesday.

Swanson has missed the last two games as he progressed through the league's concussion protocol. The 26-year-old should slide back in as starting center on the Lions' shuffled offensive line.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Absence continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Swanson will thus miss his second consecutive game as he remains under concussion protocol. The Lions rearranged their offensive line in his absence last week against the Bears, moving left guard Graham Glasgow to center while plugging Joe Dahl in at Glasgow's old spot.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Remains in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jim Caldwell said Thursday that Swanson is still in concussion protocol, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The Lions have a longer week after playing Saturday against the Bears, but Swanson's status still looks to be in doubt for Sunday in Cincinnati. Swanson would likely have to participate in at least one practice this week to have a chance to return to the field, but given that this is the second time the center has had a concussion keep him out for multiple weeks, the team will likely take a very cautious approach.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (concussion) was ruled out for Saturday's contest against the Bears.

Swanson will miss his second game in three weeks after suffering a concussion last Sunday against the Buccaneers. Expect guard Graham Glasgow to slide over to center for Saturday's contest.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jim Caldwell said Tuesday that Swanson is in concussion protocol, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Swanson's symptoms did not show up until after Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, and the center is not expected to practice Tuesday. Swanson's 2016 season ended early due to concussions and he missed the last five games of the season, but it's unclear whether this injury is the same level of severity.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Returning to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Buccaneers.

Swanson was limited in practice each day this week after sitting out last Sunday's game against Baltimore. Barring additional setbacks, he'll be expected to start and see his typical role in the offense in Week 14.

December 1, 2017 03:36 PM
Lions' Travis Swanson: Sitting out Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Swanson injured his knee during the Lions' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Vikings. Both Graham Glasgow and Corey Robinson are capable of filling in at center in his absence.

Lions' Travis Swanson: Hurts knee Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson suffered a knee injury Thursday against the Vikings, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

In Swanson's place, Corey Robinson handled snaps for the Lions. Due to the Week 12 matchup having taken place Thursday, he'll have an extra couple days to recover before Week 13's game against the Ravens.
