For some rare uplifting news concerning the Pittsburgh Steelers, veteran corner Joe Haden provided an update on Twitter about his positive case of COVID-19.
I’m completely fine also! I was Asymptotic only lost my sense of smell. Thank the Lord!

Haden makes it clear he’s feeling fine and not dealing with any symptoms. It appears he’s out of the woods and has successfully battled the virus. He did say he lost his sense of smell, which is a very common issue for many even weeks and months after battling the virus.
The 31-year-old was forced to sit out both the Steelers Week 17 game and Wild Card Round contest against his former team – the Cleveland Browns. Of course, the Steelers lost both games without Haden. While the Week 17 game was a game Haden, much like how other veterans were treated that week with Pittsburgh unable to obtain a bye in the playoffs, may have been inactive for anyway, he was certainly missed in the playoff game. Cleveland eliminated their rival by a score of 48-37, dominating the Steelers throughout most of the day.
Haden initially unveiled his displeasure and anger with the news he would have to miss the playoff game due to testing positive for COVID-19.
I’m so pissed and sad at the same time….. stay safe out here
