Patriots' Alan Branch: Remaining in New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch is expected to sign a two-year, $12 million deal with the Patriots on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Branch is a key asset for the Patriots' strong run defense. His 6-6, 350-pound frame clogs up holes in the middle of the line, and he is a key reason why New England ranked fourth in the NFL with only 88.4 rushing yards allowed per game in 2016. The deal will keep Branch with the Patriots through the 2018 season.

Patriots' Alan Branch: Active for Super Bowl LI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch (toe) is listed as active for Sunday's Super Bowl LI against the Falcons.

During the second week of prep for the Super Bowl, Branch didn't elevate beyond a limited practice session due to a toe concern. Alas, he could be one of the key factors as he faces off with Atlanta center Alex Mack, who will play through a fractured left fibula in the finale of the 2016 season.

Patriots' Alan Branch: 'Should be good to go' for Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch (toe) 'should be good to go' for Sunday's Super Bowl, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Branch showed up on the injury report earlier in the week with a toe injury and was limited in practice, but looks like he will not be facing limitations for Sunday's Super Bowl game against the Falcons. He will be key in trying to slow down Atlanta's high-powered offense, specifically in the run game, where the Falcons boast two explosive backs in Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.

Patriots' Alan Branch: Limited by toe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Branch's addition to the injury report is a slight concern for the Patriots with the Super Bowl just days away, as the 6-6, 350-pound defensive tackle is a big reason why the Patriots haven't allowed a running back to rush for 90 yards in any of their last 25 games. Look for his status to be updated as the week goes on.
