Browns cornerback Joe Haden, who received flak for sitting out of the Browns' Week 4 loss against the Chargers with a broken finger and rib injury, is once again listed on the injury report this week, Cleveland.com reports.
Haden was criticized and his toughness was questioned after sitting out of Week 4 with the injuries, but Browns coach Mike Pettine explained Wednesday he had no issue with Haden not playing due to the fact he would've hurt the team's chance of winning if he played.
"Joe wanted to be out there. He wanted to play. But just in his assessment, did not want to put the team at risk knowing that he could not be at the percentage that in his heart he knew couldn't get to," Pettine said."
Haden will likely be probable for the Browns' Week 5 matchup in Baltimore.
