CB - FA
Steelers CB Joe Haden (foot) ruled out for Sunday's Week 13 game vs the Baltimore Ravens.
This news is a fairly sizable blow to the Pittsburgh secondary. Already allowing the 13th-most points to opposing WRs this season, the Steelers being without arguably their most effective corner is a large boon for Ravens WRs, namely Marquise Brown. Adjust fantasy expectations accordingly.
Steelers CB Joe Haden is not expected to play against the Browns in Week 17 as he's been tied to a COVID-19 "situation" according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
There hasn't been much detail around if Haden has tested positive for COVID-19, broke league protocols, or has been in contact with someone with COVID-19. Either way, he won't play against the Browns, which will be good news for Baker Mayfield.
Steelers CB Joe Haden (concussion) is likely to return in Week 15.
Haden didn't play in Week 14 but he is expected to practice this week. His return will only improve the outlook for the Steelers D/ST, who has a plus matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night.
Steelers cornerback Joe Haden is officially active for the team's Week 11 matchup against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football despite being questionable with an illness.
Haden was unable to practice on Wednesday due to an illness, but many expected him to be able to suit up against his former team on Thursday. He intercepted his first pass of the season against the Rams last week and will look to contain a Browns passing attack that has talent has underachieved this season.
Joe Haden managed six solo tackles, one assisted tackle, five pass breakups, one interception, and one forced fumble, as the Steelers eked out a 17-12 win over the Rams.
Haden's most important pass defended came on the last play of the game, when he tipped a Jared Goff pass right into the waiting arms of teammate Minkah Fitzpatrick. The turnover sealed the Steelers' fourth straight victory and sent them right back into the thick of the playoff chase. They'll try to make it five in a row this Thursday against the Browns.
