Joe Haden Gets Scolded At Browns Practice For Unnecessary Roughness

Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden was kicked out of practice by head coach Pat Shurmur on Wednesday for unnecessary roughness. According to reports from Browns practice, Shurmur sent Haden off after the corner tackled rookie wide receiver Travis Benjamin in 7-on-7 drills.

Update: Here's the video of the play.

Shurmur later apologized for directing foul language at Haden while both were in the earshot of fans and onlookers. Haden was reportedly followed into the team's facility by Browns president Mike Holmgren, but Holmgren did not address the incident with reporters after practice.

Haden, of course, is having a tumultuous offseason, as he's currently facing a four-game suspension for using a substance banned by the NFL.
