Browns cornerback Joe Haden underwent surgery on his left ankle Wednesday. Haden injured his ankle in the Browns Week 8 home game against the Arizona Cardinals. He is expected to resume football activities during training camp and should be ready for the start of the 2016 regular season.
Haden started five games in 2015. He was inactive for eight games with various injuries; including a concussion, rib, finger and ankle injuries. He was placed on injured reserve on December 14, 2015 after not clearing the NFL's concussion protocol. Haden later cleared the league's protocol on January 12, 2016.
Entering his seventh season, the former seventh overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and two-time Pro Bowler has started 68 of 77 games and compiled 16 interceptions in his career with the Browns.
