CB Joe Haden Diagnosed with Sprained Knee

Cornerback Joe Haden sprained his left knee in the second quarter of the Browns loss to the Titans according to Stephanie Storm of the Akron Beacon Journal. He was hurt when the Titans punted with 8:25 remaining in the first half. After the play, he limped off the field and was examined by trainers on the sideline but remained in the game until late in the fourth quarter.

Haden was not made available to media after the game. Instead, a team employee and gathered his clothes and other belongings from his locker. Haden later wrote on Twitter that he will have an MRI Monday.

“This bye [week] couldn’t come at a better time for him to heal up and be ready for Oakland,” said linebacker D’Qwell Jackson, whose 10 tackles Sunday led the Browns. “I hope everything works out for him and he’s healthy enough to play. But I know he’s a tough kid, and he’s going to work extremely hard to get back. We just have to see as the week progresses.”
