OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland strong safety Tyvon Branch and Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew left the Raiders' 19-9 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday with ankle injuries.

Branch got hurt rushing Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne in the first quarter and had to be helped off the field. Coach Dennis Allen said after the game the injury looks to be ``significant.''

Jones-Drew also got hurt in the first half and did not return to the game. Coach Gus Bradley said Jones-Drew sustained a sprain and X-rays were negative. He will be evaluated Monday. Jones-Drew had 27 yards on 10 carries.
