Tyvon Branch’s injury is “significant” (Updated)

In the Raiders win against Jacksonville they may have suffered a major blow to their secondary. Safety Tyvon Branch suffered an ankle injury that Head Coach Dennis Allen described as “significant.”

“Tyvon Branch injured his ankle,” said Allen via SilverandBlackPride.com. “That looks to be a significant injury. We’ll find out more later.”

Safeties Brandian Ross and Usama Young filled in for Branch nicely but it is tough to replace a 5 year starter. Hopefully some good news will come from testing on Monday or Tuesday.

Update: According to Adam Schefter the injury is believed to be a broken fibula that would sideline Branch indefinitely.
