Branch (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Branch was originally given a recovery timetable of 2-to-4 weeks, so Week 5 would be the first time the Dolphins believe they have a realistic shot at getting Branch back. Branch has been primarily used as a special teams player, so while a limited practice suggests he is close to full health, the team likely won't be in any rush to get him back on the field.
