The foot injury suffered by Steelers cornerback Joe Haden is not believed to be serious, according to a report by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.
Haden was injured in the first half of the team’s game against the Detroit Lions, and was seen attempting to test the injury on the sideline before he was taken to the Pittsburgh locker room for further treatment.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said after the game that Haden had suffered a mid-foot sprain. According to Fowler, there is no significant damage, but its unclear if Haden will miss more time.
