Panthers | Team excited for Branch’s return

Brett Borden, of Panthers.com, reports Carolina Panthers S Mike Minter is excited about S Colin Branch (knee) returning to the field this season after he suffered a season-ending knee injury last year. "It's a blessing to see him out there," said Minter. "I love playing with smart safeties because I don't have to worry about them. We've got total confidence in Colin coming in and doing what he needs to do." Branch is expected to receive extensive playing time in Week 3 with S Shaun Williams (foot) doubtful with a foot injury. "He's in a pressure situation right now and it's an opportunity for him to step up and show everybody he's back," Minter said of Branch.
