Branch (groin) is questionable to play Sunday against the Raiders, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Branch was available to practice in full fashion Friday, so he seems on track to play. If he's ultimately ruled out, rookie Charles Harris would likely draw the start at defensive end.

Branch (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Branch was able to practice with limitations ahead of Week 8's matchup with the Ravens, but he was still inactive when the game rolled around. Therefore, there isn't much reason for optimism that he'll return, and Branch hasn't been performing at a level worthy of fantasy owners' attention anyway.

The Dolphins have listed Branch (groin) as inactive for Thursday's game against the Raven.

EDGE Analysis

Although Branch was able to practice in limited fashion during the week, he did not make enough progress in his recovery from a groin injury. William Hayes and Charles Harris figure to benefit the most from Branch's absence.

Branch (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice and is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Ravens, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Branch was able to practice in a limited fashion Tuesday as well, but it'll likely be a game-time decision to see whether he'll be healthy enough to play. His main contributions come in pass-rush situations, as he has three sacks through six games. However, his inconsistency takes away from his long-term fantasy value.

Branch (groin) was limited at Tuesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

It is progress in the right direction, as Branch was a non-participant at Monday's walkthrough. The defensive end appears to be trending toward a game-time decision Thursday. Look for Charles Harris to fill in on the line should Branch ultimately be ruled out.

Branch hurt his groin Sunday against the Jets and is questionable to return.

Branch was nursing a knee injury prior to this Week 7 matchup, and now he has another ailment to worry about. Expect Charles Harris to take over the remaining snaps at defensive end until Branch is healthy again.

Branch (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Branch posted three tackles (two solo) and a sack in a Week 3 matchup with the Jets. With only eight tackles (six solo) through five games, his fantasy value lies in his ability to get to the quarterback, so he should only be considered for fantasy lineups in deeper leagues.

Branch (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Armando Salguaro of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Branch missed practice on Wednesday, the Clemson product turned around and logged two full sessions Thursday and Friday. We'd be surprised if he isn't given the green light to play prior to kickoff.

Branch will sign a long-term extension with the Dolphins, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Branch performed well for Miami in 2016, recording 5.5 sacks, 49 tackles, and two forced fumbles. The specifics of his contract haven't been released but he'll likely be locked up with the team for at least the next few years. He'll figure to again start for the team at defensive end.
