NFL injury report: Seahawks DT Alan Branch sprains ankle in win

Rick Stewart

The Seattle Seahawks have no more injuries to speak of beyond a sprained ankle from DT Alan Branch.

Seahawks DT Alan Branch suffered a sprained ankle Sunday in Seattle's 50-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills, according to Curtis Crabtree of the Associated Press.

It's unclear at this moment when exactly Branch came down with the injury and head coach Pete Carroll said he wasn't sure how severe the injury was after the game.

It would be ideal to have Branch back for the 49ers game next week as San Francisco is 2nd in the league in rushing. Then again, the Seahawks shouldn't be too affected by his absence with Jaye Howard, Jason Jones and Clinton McDonald waiting in the wings.

Beyond that, there Seahawks suffered no injuries worth noting beyond some minor bumps and bruises.

In other injury news, conerbacks Marcus Trufant and Walter Thurmond were inactive again Sunday as they continued to nurse hamstring injuries. Neither player participated in practice on Thursday or Friday either which could signal that they're still a ways a way from returning to the field.
