Andre Branch is back, and the Dolphins need him.

The Dolphins’ defensive end returns to action Sunday after missing the Bills game with a knee injury.

His goal: slow down the Chiefs’ top-5 offense.

Meanwhile, cornerback Cordrea Tankersley will miss his third consecutive game with an ankle injury. Bobby McCain will start in his place.

Also missing Sunday’s game: running back Damien Williams and quarterback Matt Moore. Williams has not played since injuring his shoulder a month ago.

Meanwhile, Anthony Fasano will start at tight end with Julius Thomas on injured reserve.

The Dolphins’ other inactives: safety Michael Thomas, tackle Eric Smith and tight end Thomas Duarte.
