i want to thank t branch for doing great with RAIDERS. but he has always been injury prone. he's a guy you hear about making great plays and all that. but how often do you hear his name being called in the year? you don't, and you don't hardly hear it cause he's hardly there for the most part of the year playing. coaches love him. fans like him. but he's always injured somehow. anyways, good luck, fast recovery and i hope to see you nxt season.,, i guess.

I don't remember Branch being injured in other years. Looking on his NFL.com page he started half his rookie year, and didn't miss a start for 3 years until the end of last season being benched by RM. I could be reading it wrong but i just don't remember his injuries being an issue. What i always thought the issue was was his pass coverage. He would get torched on angles and was almost a non factor in pass plays. 4 interceptions in 72 games played. Not too good. His 345 tackles over the same span look much better.

yeah you's right! thought he had a season ending shoulder injuries in 08 or 09? neck and ankle inj 2012 and now this season ending injury and not sure if he had shoulder injury in prseason but i guess it wasn't that bad. he's just a guy like iv'e said before that fly's under the radar. we know he exists, we know he's decently good but certainly not flashy. but anyways, the other two guys had as sack each and i hope they at least don't miss their tackles!

345 tackles over the same span...at least he tackles the majority of the players that burn him for catches...which sucks...

More like all the RB's that burst past Roloando McClain and WR's that burnt Joselio Hanson get tackled by #33.
