The New England Patriots defensive tackle Alan Branch was the only player not seen at practice Tuesday according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. He also missed practice last week via Reiss.
It is not know what is wrong with Branch, as the Patriots did not release an injury report during their bye week.
On Wednesday, Branch did not opt to explain his absence to reporters, via WEEI’s Christopher Price.
Alan Branch won't disclose why he was out the other day, but says he's OK. "I feel good. I feel ready to go."

Branch has been an integral part of the team’s defensive line all season long.
His stats for Saturday is very important.
