Haden ‘sore’ After Walk Thru

Joe Haden participated in the first practice of the week as the Steelers prepare for New England on Sunday. It was Hadens first day back on the field after suffering a broken fibula on Nov. 12 in Indianapolis.

Haden confirmed after practice that he took reps as the starting left corner. Rookie Cam Sutton also spent some time with the first string defense.

“Tomorrow I will be able to tell more going through individual and team drills, see how my leg holds up,” he said. “I think it was good I went out there on Monday and Tuesday, doing those things. It was a little bit of a mental thing. I think I got that out of the way the first two days. Now I just want to be able to cover someone, stop, react and see how my leg feels.”

Tomorrow and Friday will be the most important days for Haden. We will have to wait and see how his leg responds tomorrow.

“We’re in the playoffs,” Haden told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. “We have stuff to look forward to. I don’t want to go out there half-assed and be out there hurting the team, hurting myself. Just knowing that we have games coming, knowing I’m on my way back. … I’m just trying to push it. I want to play if I can play. If I can’t, it is what it is.”
