Although Branch is making good progress, he will miss the mini-camp scheduled for next month as well as the remaining organised team activities, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

According to Birkett, Lions coach Dan Campbell stated, “He had a little cleanup there.” “After something from last year, we believed things may get better, but in the end, we realised we had to get this resolved. That’s where he is, anyway. In addition, I believe he enjoys using the scooter. However, we think he’s progressing nicely. We believe he will be prepared for camp, if not ahead of schedule, then at least with enough reps to be ready for the season. We currently feel like way.”

Branch had a fantastic 2023 rookie campaign. After being selected in the second round out of Alabama, he soon gained a reputation for making huge plays. In 15 games, he recorded 74 tackles, three interceptions that resulted in a touchdown.

During Detroit’s 21–20 season-opening victory over the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Branch made his NFL debut with a pick–six. He caught a throw from Pat Mahomes that escaped Kadarius Toney’s grasp and returned it 50 yards for the touchdown.

In the Rookie of the Year voting, Branch tied for fifth place.

After hurting his right ankle during a victory against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4, he missed two games.

Additionally, Kerby Joseph, the starting safety for the Lions in spring, is sidelined by off-season hip surgery.
