Branch Expected Week 1

by: Michael Steffes

Dan Pompei, on ESPN's First Take this morning reported that Deion Branch is expected to be ready week 1. He claimed to have spoken with Tim Ruskell who told him the team was originally expecting Branch between weeks 4 and 8, however his rehab has gone extremely well. The team now expects him to begin practice late in training camp.

If this is true, the question about wide receivers seems to becoming less of an issue by the day. I am sure many of you will advocate a wait and see approach on Branch. I agree. Still, news like this is promising. ~END~
