Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden was practicing with the team on Wednesday, indicating that he's likely to be available for the team's season opener this weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles. As Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer writes, it appears that the league will overturn Haden's recent four-game suspension.
According to NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello, players that practice on Wednesdays are typically available for games that week. So while there hasn't been any official announcement regarding Haden's appeal of his suspension, the indication is that the league will not ban the cornerback from playing.
Haden was suspended during the offseason for four games after reportedly testing positive for the banned stimulant Adderall, but he's appealed the suspension in the hopes of having it reduced or overturned. Considering that he's been practicing with the team this week, it appears that he has won his case.
