RE: Anyone else impressed by Jamaal Branch?

always like a no non-sense type of runner. he is a keeper but after last night he may not make a waiver wire in order to be placed on the PS.

I'm not sure whats the deal on Stecker, but if he is out for a while, then Branch may make the third string RB position.

I think Branch looked way more impressive than Stecker. I really like this guy.

Coach Payton said X-Rays on Stecker came back negative. He should be okay.

Payton said after the game that the x-rays of Stecker's ankle were negative.

From what I hear, it was just a left ankle sprain. He'll be fine.

I'm glad Stecker is ok, but I would like to see more of branch. He played hard last night.

RE: Re: RE: Anyone else impressed by Jamaal Branch?

the key to stecker's injury is how high is the ankle sprain.... hopefully, our 3rd running back won't have to see the field at all all year.... branch, to me, had really good vision locating open running lanes and good cutback and escapability, but looks a step slower than most running backs in the league... hope we don't live to regret trading bennett, which is initially what i thought when i saw stecker clutch his leg... honestly, his leg looked bent, so i really thought he broke the tibia, but luckily he didn't...
