BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns cornerback Joe Haden feels like he owes something to his teammates and fans.
Haden, who sat out Cleveland's last four games while serving a suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancers, is excited about returning to the lineup on Sunday when the winless Browns host the Cincinnati Bengals. Haden has practiced all week and said he's ready to return to a defense that sorely missed him.
Haden said he has not received any negative feedback from Cleveland fans, who weren't happy with him for testing positive for the stimulant Adderall. The third-year cornerback said the time away was tough and that it has made him appreciate the game even more. Haden will match up again with Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green. The two have been rivals since college.
