Haden (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, but coach Hue Jackson is "very hopeful" he'll be good to go Sunday against the Bengals, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Haden was forced to miss Week 6's tilt against the Titans due to the groin injury, but he appears to be on the right path to return Week 7. In such a case, Briean Boddy-Calhoun would move back out of the starting lineup.
