Haden (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

While the Steelers haven't yet officially announced that Haden has cleared the concussion protocol, it certainly represents a step in the right direction to see him handling unrestricted practice reps. The starting cornerback still needs to gain full clearance, but it looks like he's trending in the right direction for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.
