Tyvon Branch: Ankle injury was a “wake up call”

Raiders safety Tyvon Branch admits the season-ending ankle injury he suffered last season was a “wake up call.”

“It’s a wake-up call,” Branch said, via Syracuse.com. “You start thinking about other things. You’ve got to get all your ducks in order, because you never know when it’s going to be over.”

Branch admits the rehab process was tough.

“When I first tried to come back, I felt a little unathletic,” Branch said, “but the more I worked on it, the more and more rehab I did, the better I felt. I’m moving around good now.”
