The Pittsburgh Steelers will have to make do without starting cornerback Joe Haden for the remainder of their game against the Cleveland Browns after he left the match up with a hamstring injury midway through the fourth quarter.

With the Steelers up by a score of 21-7 at the time of his injury, it can only be hoped that Pittsburgh has done enough in the game to win without him. Cameron Sutton has come in to replace him opposite Artie Burns.

The Steelers only have four cornerbacks dressed for the contest after Coty Sensabaugh was made inactive before the game began.

While Mike Tomlin did not mention Haden in his post game press conference, or any other possible injuries for that matter, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic did try to speak with the injured cornerback after the game.
