Deion Branch Injury: Patriots WR Dealing With Hamstring Injury

The New England Patriots secondary has been decimated with injury to the point that wide receiver and kick returner Julian Edelman has been playing defensive back. The Patriots are now dealing with some injuries on the offensive side of the football however, as wide receiver Deion Branch is currently on the sideline getting stretched out by trainers. According to Suzy Kolber, the ESPN sideline reporter for Monday Night Football, Branch is having his left hamstring being tended to and his return for the game is unknown.

This means more will be put on the shoulders of Wes Welker, Chad Ochocinco, and the Patriots tight ends. The Patriots offense to this point has been stifled by the Chiefs defense, as Tom Brady has been sacked three times already.
