Despite him being limited this past week by a hip injury suffered last week in the win over the Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden will dress and play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Haden, who was very limited this past week in practice, will more than likely be matched up most of the afternoon against Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who caught five passes for 116 yards and a touchdown back in Week 1 against Haden and the Browns.
The Browns, however, will be without the services of two of their top defensive lineman Sunday as defensive end Phil Taylor and defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin will both miss the Steelers game because of injuries. The Steelers rushed for 127 yards and two touchdowns back in week 1 against the Browns so expect a heavy dose of Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount in this game.
Linebacker Paul Kruger will also give it a go Sunday against the Steelers despite being slowed by a back injury.
The Browns have also chose not to dress one of their three running backs that had a solid showing back in Week 1 against the Steelers as Terrance West was listed as one of their seven inactives. West ran for 100 yards on 16 carries in the season-opener against the Steelers after starter Ben Tate left that game with an injury.
