Steelers' Joe Haden (leg) will return to practice this week

With a huge showdown with the New England Patriots looming, Pittsburgh Steelers' cornerback Joe Haden (leg) will return to practice this week.

What It Means:

Haden has been out with a fractured fibula since Week 10 and while this is good news, it doesn't mean that the veteran defensive back will be a go for Sunday's tilt.

The Patriots lead the NFL with 287.2 passing yards per game while the Steelers rank fourth against the pass this year.
