Tyvon Branch Out For Season

Bad news for the Raiders as strong safety Tyvon Branch will require surgery on his broken foot. Oakland will place him on the injured reserve, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (on Twitter).

Branch and wide receiver Rod Streater both suffered injuries on Sunday. While the Raiders expect to have Streater back in action after a few weeks from his own foot surgery, Branch’s prognosis appears to be worse and his 2014 season is already over. Branch missed all but two games in 2013 with a broken leg and his latest setback is undoubtedly frustrating for both him and the team.

The 27-year-old started in 62 games for Oakland from 2009 through 2012, recording 421 tackles, six sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and three interceptions.
