Browns place Haden on IR, add two


The Browns placed cornerback Joe Haden on injured reserve Monday. Haden hasn’t played since Nov. 1 due to his second concussion of the season.

Haden was a Pro Bowler in 2013 and 2014. He signed a five-year, $67 million extension with the Browns prior to 2014.

Haden played in five games this season. He suffered a second concussion in his first game back from his first concussion.

The Browns made two additions Monday, claiming guard Kaleb Johnson off waivers from the Ravens and signing wide receiver Rannell Hall off of the Buccaneers’ practice squad. That signing comes a day after Browns wide receiver Brian Hartline suffered a broken collarbone against the 49ers.

Earlier Monday, Browns coach Mike Pettine said Hartline will have surgery Tuesday.

Johnson was waived last weekend as the Ravens added quarterback Bryn Renner and wide receiver Charles Matthews to their active roster. Hall is an undrafted rookie from Central Florida.

The Browns also waived offensive lineman Gabe Ikard.
