Browns CB Joe Haden suffered his 2nd concussion of the season in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Haden missed 2 games after his 1st, which makes it tough to expect a speedier return this time around. Cardinals WR Michael Floyd burned Haden for a long TD catch before the injury, so losing their top corner shouldn't alter the Browns' defensive outlook much. Replacement Pierre Desir contributed 5 tackles and 3 pass breakups vs. Denver in his 1st start this season and then 12 tackles and another breakup at San Diego. He'll present some stat upside Thursday night against the Bengals.

Steelers CB Joe Haden suffered a fibula fracture in his left leg in Sunday's win over the Colts and is out indefinitely. The loss figures to hurt the Pittsburgh defense. Haden entered the week graded 34th overall among 117 CBs by Pro Football Focus, with his coverage play dragging along a poor run-D rating. We're not projecting a huge negative impact on the team defense, though.

Update: Pro Football Talk reports that Haden could miss as little as 3 weeks.

Browns CB Joe Haden (groin) is inactive for today's game at Miami. That only helps the Dolphins' passing game for fantasy purposes, which didn't need any help to begin with this week.

Browns CB Joe Haden had surgery on his right ankle Wednesday and likely won't return until at least training camp, according to Cleveland.com. Haden suffered the injury back in Week 8, but it was a concussion that actually put him on IR. The ankle reportedly didn't bother him until he began working out recently. The team expects him to "resume football activities during training camp," which means that Haden figures to miss all offseason workouts. We'll see what kind of shape he's in when he returns. Of course, CB might be the one position where inhibited play can enhance your fantasy value. If Haden's well enough to take the field but less effective than usual in coverage, he could see more targets and allow more completions.

The Browns have placed CB Joe Haden on IR with the concussion that cost him the past 5 games. Charles Gaines started for Haden against the Niners on Sunday but is no option for your IDP league. Cleveland's D isn't much of a fantasy option either.

Browns CB Joe Haden remains out for Week 7 with a concussion. We'll see when he can get through the league protocol. His absence keeps CB Pierre Desir in the mix, though the Rams don't present a great matchup for DB value.
