The Raiders will need to look elsewhere at the safety position after injuries have prematurely ended another NFL season for Tyvon Branch.
The team plans to place the seven-year veteran on season-ending injured reserve, multiple national outlets are reporting.
Branch will have surgery for a "Jones fracture" in his foot performed by Dr. Robert Anderson, according to an NFL.com report.
Branch, 27, and wide receiver Rod Streater, 26, each suffered a fractured foot in the Week 3 loss to the New England Patriots.
Streater is currently in England with the Raiders, but Branch headed home after the Patriots game.

Branch missed 14 games last year with a fractured fibula.
