Report: Steelers CB Joe Haden Has Sprained AC Joint

Published

on

Steelers cornerback Joe Haden suffered a sprained acromioclavicular joint in Sunday’s 33-3 loss to the New England Patriots, according to a report by Ian Rapaport of NFL Network.

Haden left the game with what head coach Mike Tomlin described as a shoulder injury and was later able to return. He finished the game with six tackles, tied for third on the team. Tomlin did not provide a further post-game update on Haden.

The AC joint connects the clavicle to the top of the shoulder and allows for arms to be lifted above the head

Dr. David J. Chao, a former NFL team doctor that reports on NFL injuries for the San Diego Union-Tribune said the injury would be unlikely to prevent Haden from playing this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
