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.
