Steelers CB Joe Haden leaves game with apparent knee injury

New, comment

The Steelers defensive secondary may take a hit after Joe Haden left the game with an apparent knee injury.

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Pittsburgh Steelers Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a huge move prior to the season to acquire cornerback Joe Haden after he left the Cleveland Browns. Haden has helped solidify the Pittsburgh secondary, and looks as if he put his injury past behind him with his new team.

However, at the end of the first quarter in the team’s Week 10 game against the Colts, Haden went to the turf with an apparent knee injury.

We don’t know much at this point, but it looked as if it was a contact injury where Haden was contacted by another player before going to the turf. Haden did walk off the field before going under the blue medical tent for further evaluation, and eventually was taken to the locker room for further evaluation.

UPDATE:
