ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- Tyvon Branch has gone from being one of the most experienced members of the Oakland Raiders defense to one of the unproven ones after missing almost an entire season with an injury.

An injection of tested veterans with Super Bowl experience led to the change a year after Branch was one of just two returning defensive starters.

Branch went down with a broken leg in the second game of the season in 2013 and never returned, leaving a big void on a thin defense that was exposed throughout the year.

Branch is once again healthy this offseason and trying to fit into a revamped defense that was overhauled in free agency.
