Joe Haden's return to secondary likely for Browns

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Joe Haden is practicing for the Browns, who hope the cornerback will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The only Browns not participating Friday are defensive backs Dmitri Patterson and Ray Ventrone. Patterson has missed five games with an ankle injury and Ventrone has a calf problem.

Having Haden back would be quite welcome for Cleveland, 0-5 this year when the cornerback has been out of the lineup. He missed last week's overtime loss in Dallas due to a strained abdominal muscle and replacement Buster Skrine committed key penalties in his place.

Skrine sustained a concussion later in the game and was held out of practice earlier this week, but has taken part Friday.
