Sean Lissemore to start at nose tackle

December, 9, 2012
CINCINNATI -- The Cowboys will start Sean Lissemore at nose tackle in place of Josh Brent for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Lissemore starts because Brent is in jail, pending bail, after being charged with intoxicated manslaughter after a car accident in which teammate Jerry Brown was killed early Saturday morning.

Lissemore becomes the third player to start at nose tackle for the Cowboys this season.

Here are the Cowboys inactives: WR Anthony Armstrong, S Charlie Peprah, LB Kyle Wilber, G David Arkin, T Darrion Weems, NT Jay Ratliff and Brent.

The Bengals inactives are: K Mike Nugent, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, RB Cedric Peerman, S George Iloka, DT Devon Still, DT Brandon Thompson, TE Richard Quinn.
Calvin Watkins joined in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
