Berea, OH (WOIO) - Joe Haden returned to practice on Friday for the first time since injuring his hip in the loss to the Chicago Bears, but still isn't sure he'll be able to play against the Jets on Sunday. Haden admitted he's still in pain.
"I'm feeling it, so we'll just have to wait and see", Haden said following practice.
One motivating factor for Haden may be wanting to make one final impression before the final Pro Bowl results are tallied. Haden's having his finest season as a Brown, with four interceptions, but has also slipped of late, allowing the game-winning touchdown in the loss to the Jaguars, and other big plays in the losses to the Patriots and Bears.
Haden downplayed the Pro Bowl influence, saying he just wants to return to the field, and adding that if he's anywhere close to being 100%, he wants to play.
