  • Lions' Brian Branch: Nabs another pick in win

    Branch logged seven total tackles (three solo), one pass deflection and one interception in Sunday's 33-28 win over the Saints.

    The 2023 second-round pick's seven stops were tied for the second-most on Detroit during Sunday's contest, bringing his season total up to 58 tackles. Branch also snagged the second interception of his young career, setting up the Lions' offense for an easy touchdown in the first quarter. The nickel safety is making a tremendous impact on Detroit's defense in his first season, ranking first on the team in pass deflections and tackles for loss, and he'll look to continue causing problems for opposing offenses as the year goes on.

  • Lions' Brian Branch: Anticipates playing this week

    Branch (ankle) said Thursday that he'll play against the Ravens this Sunday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Branch missed the past two games and was a limited practice participant both Wednesday and Thursday this week. He's listed as a safety on most fantasy sites but has taken a vast majority of his snaps as a slot corner and quickly become a fan favorite in Detroit.

  • Lions' Brian Branch: Out again

    Branch (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Jenna Laine of report.

    Branch's absence will mark his second straight after he was carted off the field in the Lions' Week 4 win over the Packers. Detroit did not opt to place him on injured reserve, so that indicates the team still does not think he will be out much longer. His absence against the Bucs could lead to more opportunities for Will Harris and Ifeatu Melifonwu as depth options at safety.
