Joe Haden to miss offseason after ankle surgery

When it comes to the Cleveland Browns, the phrase “when it rains, it pours” is more than true. After losing a number of star players to free agency, they will be without arguably their best player in cornerback Joe Haden for the next few months.

Haden recently had surgery on his ankle on Wednesday and it was reported that he will likely miss the entire offseason. The Browns expect him to be ready for the start of the regular season in September.

The one thing that the Browns can take away from Haden’s injury is that he has already played in new defensive coordinator Ray Horton’s system in the past. This could end up being a good thing for the Browns.

Since being drafted in the top ten of the 2010 NFL Draft, Joe Haden has been the biggest piece for the Browns’ defense. He has recorded 16 interceptions, 89 pass deflections, and 262 tackles.
