What happened to Brian Branch?

On the play, Lions’ safety Kerby Joseph whiffed on a tackle on Gray and Branch jumped over him before landing and going down onto the field.

Why it Matters

If Branch has to miss time, it is a huge loss for the Lions. Earlier in the game, the youngster had his “Hello NFL” moment when he picked off the great Patrick Mahomes and returned it for a touchdown.

TL;DR (too long didn’t read)

  1. Injury Scare for Brian Branch: Late in the third quarter of the game between the Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs, Lions rookie Brian Branch appeared to suffer an injury. This incident occurred following a long gain by Chiefs tight end Noah Gray, during which Branch was down on the field, prompting the Lions’ trainers to intervene.
  2. Tackle Attempt Gone Wrong: The injury incident was a result of a tackle attempt by Lions’ safety Kerby Joseph on Noah Gray. Brian Branch, displaying agility and athleticism, attempted to leap over Joseph but landed awkwardly, leading to his fall and injury scare.
  3. Potential Impact on the Lions: The possible absence of Brian Branch due to injury could have significant implications for the Lions. Earlier in the game, Branch had a standout moment when he intercepted star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and returned the interception for a touchdown. Losing such a promising rookie, especially after a game-changing play, would be a substantial setback for the team.

Bottom Line: Fingers Crossed

The bad news is that Branch appeared to suffer an injury late in the third quarter of Thursday’s game. The good news is that he was able to walk off the field under his own power. Let’s hope Branch is fine, as he has already proven that he has what it takes to be a difference-maker in the NFL.
