Joe Haden broke his fibula

Cornerback Joe Haden wasn’t around when the Steelers came back to beat the Colts with 17 straight points in the second half and he won’t be around when they return to the field against the Titans on Thursday night.

Haden left the game with a leg injury in the first half and coach Mike Tomlin announced after the 20-17 win was over that the veteran has a broken fibula. Haden left the stadium in crutches and there’s no definitive timetable for how long he’ll be out at this point.

“It’s high on his leg. I don’t know what that means,” Tomlin said, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com.

The Steelers gave up a couple of long touchdown passes Sunday, but settled down after going down 17-3 early in the third quarter. They also lost safety Mike Mitchell to an ankle injury during the game, so the quick turnaround may leave them down multiple players in the secondary.

    Lol yea crap teams are 7-2. Man, I thought Patriot fans were smart when it comes to football.

  2. This is awful, steelers finally get a guy playing pro bowl caliber at corner and he goes down for the season. The football gods just want the steelers to have a awful secondary.

    They got burned left and right by a way below avg colts passing attack soon as Joe left and the game Artie Burns is at best an avg nfl corner who gets beat way to much.

    Better rev up the 2015 no huddle passing offense or this season is trash like last year.

  3. It means Brady and Co. will feast on your secondary coach Tomlin. The road to the SB goes through Gillette again.

    if jacoby brissett and an awful colts team shreds your d, wait do you think brady will do to it?

    Funny that a fake veteran would be passing judgement…. sometimes you have to stop for a second and realize no one but a very anal loser worries about grammar. If name calling bothers you just hike up your Depends and shut up. Commenting on social grace by a troll of your frequency shows your room temp IQ is taxed….relaxed real veterans are insulted by your behavior.
