will receive an MRI on Saturday after he injured his left knee in a Jaguars 22-17 loss against the Lions on Friday night.

Branch injured his knee in the first half and went to the Jaguars' locker room and seen walking with crutches after the game.

"We’ve got our fingers crossed on that one," Jaguars defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said via ESPN.com. "I think we’ll see with that. I know he was walking around a little bit in the training room."

In 2014, Branch had 18 tackles, two forced fumbles and three sacks despite missing seven games with a groin injury.

12 PM Update: Branch has a MCL spring and will miss "significant time" at beginning of season according to team officials.
