Joe Haden sits out Friday’s practice due to groin injury

Joe Haden AP

Browns cornerback Joe Haden missed practice Friday with a groin injury, adding another notable name to a Browns injury list that seems to be growing every day.

Haden, a two-time Pro Bowler, had two interceptions last week. He’s trying to bounce back from a difficult 2015 season that included multiple injury issues and offseason ankle surgery.

The Browns lost rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman for 4-6 weeks to a broken hand suffered in Wednesday’s practice. They’re starting their third quarterback in three games — and fifth in five games dating back to last season — Sunday in Miami when rookie Cody Kessler starts due to injuries to Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown.

Rookie defensive end Carl Nassib is also expected to miss this week’s game with a broken hand, and starting center Cameron Erving is out after suffering a bruised lung during last week’s loss to the Ravens.

    You could put the ’72 Dolphins roster in Cleveland uniforms and they would still have a losing season.

    You could put the 69 Steelers in the Steelers uniform and they would play like the 69 Steelers.

    If you show up to the game Sunday in Miami wearing a Browns uniform you might get some playing time.

    Cant see Cleveland winning this week.

    If you are the punter and you don’t tackle someone in a meaningless preseason game to avoid injuries, then you are traded. The coaching would appear to be the problem if the players keep getting injured in practice.

    The nightmare doesn’t end until the Browns STOP being a carousel of ownership, coaching, and front offices. Be patient, build a team, have an identity. You can’t reshuffle every two years and expect it all to work out.

    As far as Haden being hurt, I am shocked. He’s been the picture of health for Cleveland for so long.

    The Dog Pound will be treated to an 0-16 season by a coach who dumped Manziel, the Browns’ best quarterback, for RGIII, who was signed for megabucks and lasted 1 game.

    Last night Bill Belichick put on a clinic on how to game plan for a rookie QB. Wonder if anyone on the Browns watched.

    Josh McDaniels too. He deserves a lot of credit. May not he HC material, but certainly a top OC. Wish we had him.

    So the man who got beat on a deep beautiful rainbow touchdown in week 1 but supposedly wasn’t part of a real defense, got 2 interceptions off of Joe Flacco in week 2?

    It’s almost like he was only considered a nobody in week 1 bc people were looking for an excuse. Weird how that happens.

    When Joe Haden has a good game he still gets beat for a TD. Can he ever go one game in a row without getting burned? This guy is slow and overrated and now he’s reached the age where injuries are plying up.

    When things go bad in Pittsburgh who are the rookies going to look to for inspiration? Joe Haden and Joe Thomas? Neither of them has EVER won in Pittsburgh and the sooner they hit the road the better.
