BEREA, Ohio — Browns cornerback Joe Haden returned to practice and may play against Pittsburgh after missing last week’s game with an oblique injury.
Haden moved well and didn’t seem limited during the portion of Wednesday’s practice open to the media. The Browns are 0-5 this season without Haden, their top cornerback who also missed four games while serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Without Haden, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo picked on his replacement, Buster Skrine, who didn’t practice as he recovers from a concussion sustained in the fourth quarter against the Cowboys. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Skrine is "working through the process" and did not say if he will play against the Steelers.
Cornerback Dimitri Patterson had been expected to test an ankle injury that has sidelined him for five games but he was not at practice.
